After a brief welcome from the Acting Dean of Peterborough, guests will be seated at tables of ten for a delicious three-course dinner, prepared and served by the award winning Dimblebee Catering Company. Guests will choose in advance from a tempting menu, which includes a traditional roast turkey and Christmas pudding option.
