COVID-19 Update

We would like to inform you that this afternoon, the College’s Governing Body has made the decision to cancel the 150th Anniversary Ball on 26 June 2021. The decision has not been taken lightly, but due to the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic and in the context of the constantly changing guidelines and regulations it has become impossible for the Committee to continue planning and committing to an event of this size.

Words cannot describe the disappointment felt by our full Committee. We are incredibly sad for all the students, alumni and guests of Keble who were looking forward to this celebration.

Refund Process

All ticket holders are eligible for a full refund of their ticket and any add-ons purchased via their original payment method. There will be no cancellation fee. If you hold a guest ticket any refund requested will be sent to the person who purchased a ticket on your behalf.

We will be in touch shortly with details about refunds. All tickets (including any add-ons) purchased with a credit/debit card will now need to be refunded via bank transfer. In the follow up email you will find a secure form that you will need to complete. For students who have booked Keble accommodation, the refund process for the room booked will be automatic, and the College will take on the cancellation fee.

We will try to process all refunds as quickly as possible, but we hope you understand that processing thousands of refunds will take time. We ask you to please be patient and avoid sending us non-urgent queries. If you do have an urgent query, please email and we will respond as soon as possible


The ball will bring together a symphony of exclusive live music, cutting-edge DJs and mesmerising performance acts. With a beautiful Victorian fairground, comedy acts, dozens of immersive areas to explore and of course the not-to-miss ‘Great Spectacular’, this evening promises to keep you entertained until dawn!

Food & Drink

Your ticket includes unlimited food and drink over the course of the night. Experience a range of cuisine catering for all dietary requirements, with exquisite canapés, gourmet food and experimental sweet treats to be found on every corner. A full range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be available from bars nestled throughout the college.

These festival-feel catering options are complimented with additional dining options available for those who wish to have a more formal experience in the recently refurbished, now sparkling Hall.
