The Ball

The Union Ball is always one of the highlights of Oxford’s social calendar. Two balls are hosted each year – one in Michaelmas, and another in Hilary. In Trinity, we usually make the most of the good weather at a summer Garden Party.

Tickets for the Union Ball are highly sought after, and regularly sell out in just a few days! Members receive exclusive discounted ticket prices, as well as access to tickets before anyone else. But don’t worry – every member has the right to bring along a guest.

The Union Ball is more affordable than the vast majority of College Balls, providing everyone with the opportunity to have a night to remember, without breaking the bank. In the last few years the Union has been transformed into a luxurious Venetian Masquerade, a glorious Chocolate Factory, the glamourous streets of Paris, and for Michaelmas 2016 – the heart of the Arctic Circle, with the Northern Lights Ball. Each Ball showcases some of the very best food and drink that Oxford has to offer, alongside live performances, photoshoots, a silent disco, and even UV table tennis! A night you do not want to miss, the Union Ball really does provide something for everyone.
