  • The ball starts at 7 pm with a pre-dinner drink
  • Seating for dinner is 7.30 pm
  • The ball finishes at 11.45 pm 
  • Unfortunately, the Committee is not permitted to arrange an after ball party at a nightclub


There will be an opportunity to have your photograph taken, wearing your best dress/suit/outfit, with your friends.


We will also be holding a raffle, so you may be lucky and win something on the night as well! See the next section on how, by booking a ticket, you are supporting our charity Changing Lives.

As part of our continued efforts to support Changing Lives, the College Committee will subsidise your ticket by £1 as an entry into the raffle. So by booking a ticket you are helping to raise funds for this worthwhile cause.

Changing Lives is the charity we, as a CSAC, have chosen to support, raising funds whenever we can. Changing Lives works tirelessly across Northern England, specifically in Yorkshire, to support and improve the lives of society’s most vulnerable.
