Mark your calendars, gather your finest attire, and prepare for an unforgettable night as Sidney Sussex College welcomes back the dazzling May Ball on June 15th! ✨

We're thrilled to be bringing you a night of pure magic and revelry, and while many other Cambridge Balls are facing rising costs, we're proud to keep our ticket prices accessible. Careful planning and dedication have allowed us to deliver an event of the highest standard and quality, without the hefty price tag.

At Sidney Sussex May Ball, your experience comes first. We believe everyone deserves to experience the magic of this iconic Cambridge tradition, and we're committed to making it a reality. So, dust off your dancing shoes, gather your friends, and prepare to join us for a night that will leave you sparkling with memories.

The theme will be revealed on the 24 January, with tickets being accessible for purchase on from 5pm on 25 January.

For the first time in Sidney's history, we will be adding a optional exclusive dining experience which will grant you and your guests early access to the event, a champagne reception followed by afternoon tea in Formal Hall. This privileged access also grants you entry an hour ahead of the crowds.

Alternatively, elevate your evening with VIP Queue Jump. Glide past the waiting masses and enjoy a dedicated champagne reception on arrival. This seamless entry ensures you get straight to the heart of the festivities.

Headliners will have you dancing until dawn, from the electrifying beats of DJs to soulful melodies of headlinign acts and student bands. Three stages cater to every mood, from the pulsating Main Stage to the chilled vibes of the Acoustic Stage.

Prepare to be amazed by dazzling attractions, explore a range of food and refreshing cocktails. We will celebrate Alumni of Sidney with dedicated attractions and entertainments to make you and your guests feel at home back at Sidney. This is more than just a party; it's a homecoming, a celebration of Sidney spirit, and a night that will become a cherished memory. Don't miss out!

Prepare to be enchanted as Sidney Sussex transforms into a realm of moonlit revelry as spring dances into summer beneath the stars. Experience the magic of the season, laughter echoing through the courts, and the scent of warm nights in the air. Raise a toast to new beginnings, long friendships, and an unforgettable night back at your College. Gather your friends, don your finest attire, and prepare for a night etched in gold under the stars. Spread the word!
