Music performance


The Dining Hall, located on the third floor of  Liang Chi Hao Centre, is where meals are served and the signature High Table takes place.

High Table

Green gowns and candles fill the Dining Hall (DH) *at 7:30pm every Monday evening, with banter and laughter being the background music. 

The High Table (HT), same as the city's East-meets-West culture, combines the UK college tradition with Chinese cooking which is enjoyed by the undergraduate students from all around the world. 

(Postgraduates and guests are also welcomed to join*. Please refer to the remarks below.)


  • Postgraduate students are welcome to join us upon registration, given the limited seats available at DH.
  • Visitors, upon invitation and reservation by a current St. Johnian, might also join us.
  • For Alumni, please contact the College Office for further information and registration. 

High Table Talks

Regular HT talks are held after HT to engage St. Johnians in insightful discussions with the guests. The speakers include the College alumni, academics and other high level speakers.


Aiming to ensure an open discussion, the content and the speakers' identity remains anonymous. Participants are free to use the information from speakers in the talks without revealing the their identity or affiliation; recording is not allowed with the aim in mind.
