Step into Christ’s on Tuesday 14th June as college comes alive and you fall down a surrealist rabbit hole. Humans become animals, and buildings come alive in an attempt to bring you closer to nature and the otherworldly side of your existence. Expect the natural, but also the more surreal, side of life.
Trust us, it grows on you.

Prepare to be entertained from the moment you join the queue to the moment you depart. This year, Christ's May Ball returns with a bigger and better line-up of acts. We promise to immerse you with a myriad of musical performers and themed entertainment. There will be something for everyone, whether that is: watching the headliner, dancing the night away, or taking a step back and relaxing. You will always have something to do, so prepare to have an unforgettable night. Take a chance and set foot on an unforgettable journey through Christ’s and experience the college coming alive. On your travels through the heart of Christ’s you will be offered an endless array of indulgent food and refreshing drinks to tantalise your taste buds and quench your thirst. From the traditional favourites to the more unusual, there will be plenty of options to satisfy everyone. You won't leave hungry or thirsty.
