Summer Dinner with Guest Speaker, Catherine Fox @ Doncaster Minster
Jun 28 @ 6:00 pm – 10:15 pm

What is it?
It is a 3 course, silver service meal served right beneath the tower in the Minster, with tea or coffee and chocolates served afterwards. There is a choice of menu for each course – which you will receive details of well in advance and special dietary requirements of all kinds can be accommodated by speaking to us. The meal will be catered by Sandra Bishop Catering and the service you will receive is excellent.

What time does it start?
The event starts at 6pm and there will be a bar serving soft drinks, a choice of wines and Prosecco. The bar remains open throughout the meal.  Guests are seated at 7pm. You can expect to leave the Minster by about 9.45pm
We have a guest speaker – Catherine Fox – after dessert is served and, as is the Minster Summer Dinner tradition, we hope to gain a new perspective on life whilst we guzzle the chocolates… Her blog says: “Author, and lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University. REALMS OF GLORY is my newest book. Before that I wrote three novels, a memoir about my quest to get a judo black belt, a teen fantasy novel WOLF TIDE, and a series of humorous books about the Church of England. I live in Sheffield.”

Why do we do this?
We do this to raise funds towards the restoration of the Minster. The profit from the evening goes towards the restoration fund to secure the future of this beautiful and very special, historic place. We also LOVE an excuse to get together for some great food in good company in a beautiful setting – we like being hospitable!

How much does a place cost?
The cost is £38.50 per person for the 3 course meal including chocolates and tea/coffee. The bar is a cash bar.
What is the dress code?
It is very much up to you. This is not a black tie event, but most people dress smartly – however that looks for you!
