The Churchill College 2017 Spring Ball ‘Mirage’ is less than a month away! Therefore, the Archives Centre thought it was a great opportunity to put together a display of our favourite Churchill College May Ball and Spring Ball posters spanning the past 50 years. The posters are currently on display outside the Churchill College Dining Hall. However, if you are unable to view the display in person, do not worry, as they are here for you all to see!
From 1964-1969 Churchill College hosted a May Ball, however, these proved to be financially unsuccessful, and subsequently led to the cancelling of the 1970 May Ball due to poor ticket sales. Following this, from the late 1970s-1980s, the college hosted a June Event. However, this ended in 1987, when the college began hosting a Spring Ball which has since become an annual event!
Programme for the first May Ball held in 1964. College archives, CCRF/113/3.
