Following on from the success of 2019, the Corpus Christi College Ball 2021 will be a night to remember. We aim to create an event celebrating the truly unique experience that is studying at Oxford and being a part of the Corpus community, and indeed our collective hardiness as a student body in navigating the ever-changing world around us.
The 2021 Ball will unite the pleasure of contemporary life in Oxford with the College’s rich tradition and past. Coupling the College, with its regal architecture and luscious gardens, together with incredible food, music and entertainment, it’s sure to be an unforgettable experience.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are doing everything we can to make sure that on Saturday the 23rd of October 2021, those who attend are safe both physically and financially from the impacts of coronavirus. All measures are being put in place with help from the College and Oxford City Council to ensure we comply with the most current guidelines. Our priority in the (hopefully) unlikely event of a total cancellation, due to a local lockdown or a change in regulations regarding large gatherings, is getting all of those who have bought or reserved a ticket a full refund.
However, we are aiming with cautious optimism to plough ahead and provide an event which can bring the Corpus community together again after struggling through such volatile times.The theme of the ball, Sol et Luna, aims to pay homage to the centrality of the sun and moon to college traditions and local history. The dress code will be black tie. Keep your eyes out on our Facebook page for updates on the entertainment, food and drinks that you’ll be able to experience this Michaelmas.
