Introduction

Corpus Christi College is located in the heart of Cambridge, on the corner of King’s Parade and where you will also find the Corpus Clock, the Chronophage. Corpus is one of the oldest and one of the smallest colleges in the city. Known for its excellence in food and warm hospitality, Corpus offers guests and visitors the opportunity to enjoy Old Court, the oldest enclosed court in Cambridge dating back to the 14th century and the magnificent 19th century Dining Hall.

The college has a motto; ‘Old foundations. New ideas’. This ethos runs through the conference and catering departments and is shown in the food and service offered, traditional surroundings with a modern and fresh approach to food and service. Corpus can host events for up to 150, from an intimate dinner for 30 in the wood panelled Parker Room, a wedding in Hall for 100 guests, a birthday party in the college Bar or a talk for 50 in the McCrum Lecture Theatre.

Food is very important at Corpus; ‘our philosophy is simple: source the finest ingredients at their seasonal best then create dishes to delight and exceed expectations’. Each quarter new menus are produced by the Executive Head Chef, Sebastian offering fresh and imaginative options for fine dining, buffets and lunches.

If you are thinking about planning an event or have a brief already, please call us and arrange a visit. Take the opportunity to get away from your desk and computer and see Corpus for yourself and meet the team.

Catering

One glance at the chefs’ menus show exactly why Corpus’ reputation for excellence in food continues to grow every year. Our philosophy is simple: source the finest ingredients at their seasonal best then create dishes to delight and exceed expectations.

When booking an event, food is such an important element; clients and guests look forward to the coffee and lunch breaks during a meeting to see what treats and nibbles are on offer and want to be impressed with their lunch after taking a day out of the office. The team here at Corpus relish the opportunity to see guests leave dinner satisfied that we exceeded every expectation they had. Food is very important here, let us show you how.

Meet Cambridge is a fantastic service which makes the detailed task of organizing an event in this unique city so much easier. I have used them for over a decade for both business and personal events and they remain my first port of call when I have an event to organize in Cambridge.
