Jamie Oliver's Fabulous Feasts to run pop-up for Leeds Metropolitan University's graduation

Jamie Oliver's event catering business, Fabulous Feasts, will create a pop-up venue at Leeds Metropolitan University for this year's graduation ceremonies.

As many as 7,500 students and their families will have the opportunity to dine at the venue, which will be located on the Acre of Leeds Met's Headingley campus.

Guests can choose either to pre-book a three-course sit-down dinner (for 400 people per sitting) or to enjoy a more casual, "roll up and eat" dining.

David Collett, head of campus and residential services at the University, said: "This is a really exciting step for Leeds Metropolitan University and one that we hope will lead to a long-term partnership.

"The Acre is a truly picturesque space on our Headingley campus and will provide an idyllic backdrop for the tepees being erected by Fabulous Feasts. We want our students to have a memorable graduation this year and we're confident that this unique joint venture will deliver just that."

Jamie Oliver's Fabulous Feasts is a partnership between the celebrity chef and fresh food expert Nigel Harris.
