The usual approach is PF-based calendar as detailed here: https://www.cogmotive.com/blog/office-365-tips/create-a-company-shared-calendar-in-office-365

You can also use the new "modern" O365 groups, however restricting access to the calendar will be tricky (i.e. if you dont want people to delete other people's entries).

Yes, that whole deleting other people's entries thing was worrying me :-) I will follow up your suggestion - where could I get more information n on the groups feature?

Groups will not work for your scenario - you cannot restrict deleting there. Anyway, here's a good starting article on them: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Get-started-with-Office-365-Groups-in-Outlook-b86c141b-39cf-49d9-a4db-124c3d786204
