May Ball

On alternating years Corpus and St catz hold May balls (which are confusingly in June). In 2019 it is Corpus’ turn to hold the ball, and the theme will be ‘Chronophage’. Tickets can be found at and are £150 standard, £175 queue jump and £190 dining for corpus students.

May balls start at 9pm and continue until around 6am the next day, make sure you stay awake for the survivors photo! Expect big name musical acts, lots of fun entertainment and endless free food and drinks! In 2020 a May ball will be held by St Catz and Corpus students will be given priority access to these tickets.  

May balls are expensive but they are a must do when in Cambridge! Many balls have options to work part of the ball in exchange for free entry to the rest. For information on working at the Corpus May Ball check the facebook page and website.
