Formal dinners give you the chance to dress up, embrace Mary’s tradition and enjoy a three course meal with friends. They take place approximately three times a term. There is a three-course dinner served in the Dining Hall, and everyone has to dress smartly and wear their gowns for the duration. There are special formals throughout the year including Christmas Formals, Burns’ Night Formal and President’s Guest Night, when certain people are awarded College Colours for their contribution to the JCR.formal3formal2Formal1
