Event organisation

Throughout your journey with us your booking will be treated with meticulous care and attention to detail. On the day, we deliver a stress-free experience enabling event organsiers and delegates to focus on the content of the event and enjoy our hospitality. 

Exquisite catering

Jesus College has a long-standing reputation for fantastic food and drink. Our team of chefs, led by Tom Stewart, prepare and deliver an incredible range of catering for both College and commercial dining. With a keen eye on sustainability, Jesus College limits ruminant meat and encourages event organisers to select "chefs choice" so that menus are both delicious and less wasteful.

Our highly professional front of house team ensure that everything runs smoothly for your dining experience and are on hand to ensure you have everything you need.

Audio Visual and event set up

Our friendly and very knowledgeable on-site audio visual technician Mark Cresswell has a background in sound engineering. He is particularly responsible for the outstanding facilities in the Frankopan Hall, a venue and equipment sure to impress your guests. Mark works directly with organisers in the lead up to your event, ensuring you have the optimum equipment and expertise planned and faultless delivery on the day. 

Mark is supported by a small but crucial conference operations team who deliver AV equipment and support for events and ensure your room is comfortable, set to expectation and fully equipped with everything you need.
