On the 27th of June 2020, Keble’s sesquicentennial night, see Keble as you’ve never seen it before. Together members of Keble past and present will be welcomed for a night of unrivalled wonder and awe within Butterfield’s iconic quads.

Using the whole College, and promising to be more magnificent than ever, this will be a Ball to remember for the next 150 years.


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.
