Monday Formal Dinner
Each Monday, the College gathers in the main Dining Hall for the traditional candle-lit Formal Dinner.
This weekly event has been taking place since St Ann’s College was opened in 1947.
It is a semi-formal affair with the Principal, Tutors and College Club seated on a raised head table, and students seated at tables below. The tables are spread with white cloth and lit by candles, lending something of a hallowed atmosphere.
As per tradition, the dinner begins with a Latin benediction read by the Principal, followed by the reading of College news and announcements.
The three-course meal is then served – seasoned with plenty of socialising, laughter and good times!
Secure car parking is available on the St Ann’s campus for approximately 40 students. Allocation is on a first-come, first-served basis. There are also several places where bicycles can be kept locked.
