Trinity May Ball

Trinity College started the tradition of May Balls in Cambridge. The official name of the May Ball is The First and Third Trinity College Boat Club May Ball. The May Ball has something for everyone. My highlights of the evening included Georgina Skinner’s beautiful song in the Old Combination Room (Soundcloud), the Dirty Blonde performance on main stage, and the Bonbonbonbonbons (did I get that name right?) that performed in a tent on the backs. Almost forgot, the fireworks set to music was really impressive.

Here are a few photos, more will come later after the May week finishes.

Clare Watkinson and Daisy Russel proved that you can walk on the grass even without a fellow of the college. You just need to learn crazy acrobatics first.
