” It was excellent – the Hall, the food and drink, the service – the whole lot!.” – Anonymous – April 2022

” Thank you so much for letting me host this event in Newnham. I am very grateful to you and your team for organising and facilitating it. I think it all went very well – especially given that most of the speakers had not spoken F2F for over two years. Your AV team were very professional and helpful and all went without a hitch – which is not my experience of running meetings elsewhere.
I am so impressed with your flexibility (eg last moment changes in dietary requirements) and how helpful you all were – so will definitely be recommending Newnham as a conference venue to others.
Dinner was also great so thank you to the catering staff – and of course the main hall is lovely. Having drinks outside before was a special treat ” Consultant Reproductive Medicine – April 2022

” Our event on Thursday and Friday went really well and we’ve had some really positive feedback from participants. Thanks so much to you and your colleagues for providing such a brilliant venue and service which really helped to bring the event together. I just wanted to say thank you for your help in organising our event earlier this week. Everything went well and we were really impressed with the room and facilities- it was a great space” – Anonymous – April 2022

” I’d like to express my enormous gratitude and I’m delighted that we chose Newnham College as the venue for the event. Everything went smoothly and professionally, and I couldn’t be happier. I had the opportunity to learn about a lovely college with lovely people working there, and I’m overjoyed!! Please extend a sincere thank you to the entire catering team, as I have received numerous compliments on the food from my guests. I’m sure everyone appreciated the dining hall because it’s a lovely space, bright and very spacious with beautiful features. All guests had a great time as they were talking and having fun on their breaks. Even the weather helped by shinning all week!! The conference room was large and very well equipped with all of the necessary tools to ensure that the event went smoothly. I would like to thank the IT department. Although the event went without any major IT problems, the IT team was very quickly to act when we needed them!! ​Newnham is a lovely, bright college with beautiful gardens all around. From reception to IT department and even catering team, everyone made us feel very welcomed!! Thank you to all of you and I hope we can meet and work in the future again!! ”  ECLip2022 – April 2022

” Thank you so much for the wonderful lunch event yesterday. There were many compliments regarding the quality and presentation of the food. It was interesting to note that once the main course arrived the chatter was replaced by almost total silence around the table as everybody got stuck in to the delicious combination of flavours – chicken crackling – who knew??!!! The diabetic lady was thrilled with her dessert, because it was delicious, AND because someone had taken the trouble to create something she could eat worry-free. Even the weather was in our favour, and we were able to have our pre-lunch drinks in the roof garden. All in all a fantastic event – thank you so much to everybody.” Soroptimists – March 2022

” The meeting went SO well! The technology went smoothly without a hitch. One of the attendees even said that it was the best hybrid meeting they had ever been too. Everyone I came into contact with on the day was super friendly, helpful and professional. I felt super well looked after all day. Thank you for all of your dedicated support beforehand and on the day, I truly appreciated it. Thanks also for being so patient and accommodating with all our last minute changes . Newnham has truly been one of the best Colleges to work with in my four years of experience ”  Anonymous – January 2022

” Thank you very much for organising everything for yesterday evening. The event went very well and we’d certainly recommend that model to other Directors of Studies. The choice of drinks was perfect. The mini-eclairs were the first to go, and the little salmon blini were very popular and tasty. The amount that was on offer was just right. ” Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics – October 2021

” We were really pleased with how well the event went, and we have had such good feedback from our participants on the event as a whole, and Newnham as a venue.  Thanks so much for doing so much to organise the event, and for being so responsive even in the midst of covid uncertainty – it really did make the whole thing so much more manageable and took away a good deal of the stress! I also wanted to pass on my thanks to the AV and catering team – everyone I encountered over the three days was so kind and attentive, and everything went so smoothly with food, refreshments, and the technical setup, which freed myself and my co-organisers up to deal with other things ” Anonymous – September 2021

” Thank you SO much for the most INCREDIBLE experience at the weekend! We had just the most unbelievable time and we are so so grateful for all your efforts to make it so special for us. I know it was so difficult to pivot everything and we are so incredibly grateful. We had so many friends saying it was the best wedding they’d been to, and we are so grateful to you for making it happen! ” Bride and Groom – June 2021
