Event description

Description

The Manor Hall Association’s Summer Ball is the highlight of our annual events calendar and welcomes all current and former students to celebrate the end of another academic session of the University.

This year also marks an extra special occasion. In January 2018, Dr Martin J Crossley Evans MBE JP, retired as Warden of Manor Hall after an extraordinary 33 years. He retires as the longest-serving Warden in the history of the University after 100 terms in office. Generations of our alumni have benefitted from his wit and wisdom and the unique community that we share owes itself to him.

Our Summer Ball 2018 will be held in his honour as a small way of saying thank you and to wish him well for his retirement.

The event comprises of a drinks reception and three course dinner with wine, cheese and port followed by live music and other entertainments in the Bar, Library and Junior Common Room. All current residents, students and alumni are welcome.

Plans are still in progress, so check our social media to find out what's happening.

FAQs

What is the dress code?

This is a black tie event; we would prefer every guest to try to adhere to this. For gentlemen that don't own a dinner suit a dark lounge suit and necktie will be acceptable. For the entertainments part of the evening the dress code will be relaxed slightly. If you are unsure on the dress code and for female equivalents please see Debrett's advice on the subject: http://bit.ly/1zPQocs

Note: Whist the dress code won't be strictly enforced we would be grateful for every effort made, gentlemen not wearing a jacket and tie may be refused admission to dinner.
