Come one, come all!
Catapulting off the success of last year’s event, St. Edmund’s College is pleased to invite you to our May Ball 2019, which promises to be a truly memorable event.
Guests will experience a diverse and abundant selection of food from some of Cambridge’s finest gastronomical institutions; cocktails, wine, beer and other non-alcoholic festive beverages will flow from start to finish; and a curated programme of entertainment, including live music, attractions and interactive activities, will allow for a wide variety of tastes to be satisfied for the whole evening.
The Ball will take place on the evening of Friday, June 21st 2019, with entrance to the festivities beginning at 8pm on the college grounds, and lasting until the early hours of the morning. All members of the community, students, staff, fellows, and administrators are invited to join us in celebrating the end of a successful academic year.
Our theme for this year’s ball is a play on words, both an allusion to the popular Ed Sheeran song and also a reference to St. Edmund's as one of the 'hill colleges' up on the north side of the River Cam.
