Everyone invited to each of the 15 ceremonies will leave Edge Hill University not only with a degree but be treated to a finger buffet of both savoury and sweet offerings all washed down with a glass of wine or soft drink. The state of the art Hub is used for catering and serving over 3000 guests per day.

Catering Services are proud to be part of an accumulation of years of hard work, knowing that when the students leave Edge Hill University with their Alumni Bag or their branded Students’ Union Hoody, they and their family will have been warmly looked after.

Catering Services also cater for the VIP lunches that take place in the Garden Restaurant overlooking the Rose Garden each day (by invitation only).

Video Archive from previous ceremonies can be found on our Graduation Ceremonies pages.

If you wish to contact us for additional information, be aware that Catering Services will respond to any queries however, please be patient with us as we will endeavor to respond within five working days.

* During Graduation ceremony periods there will be changes to the normal service supplied by our outlets.
