Guidelines for Planning Your Catered Event

Planning ahead is the best way to be able to enjoy your service.

Here are some items to consider for a successful service.

  • Contact Catering Services with the preliminary details of your catering requirements as early as possible.  (Certain dates may become sold-out well in advance.)
  • Confirm your venue and/or table bookings. 
        
        Quick Hints/Tips:
    • Catering Services may require access to your venue 1 hour prior to the commencement of your event for set up and 1 hour following the completion of your event for clean-up.
    • Breakfast/lunch services for 15-30 will require 6`-18` of table space for menu presentation.  For each additional 20 guests, please add an extra 6` of table space up to a maximum of 36` (or six 6` tables.)
    • Think about the flow of your event.  If catering is to be delivered over the course of a day-long session, please advise of appropriate service times.  For confidentiality purposes, you may wish to set up your tables for food or beverage service in the corridor immediately outside of a meeting room, so your guests can help themselves to refreshments as time permits.

  • If you wish to serve wine, beer, or spirits at your event, contact Queen`s Event Services at least 14 days prior to your event so that an Application to Hold a Licensed Event may be submitted on your behalf.

  • Please note, we are NOT an allergen free environment. However, safe alternatives—including direct consultation with our culinary team to arrange alternative menus or outside pre-packaged food items can be made available.
    Guests with food allergies are valued diners. Please contact us regarding any assistance or guidance required to ensure your guests are served safely.
