Dear Members and Friends of the German Society,

We are excited to announce the first ever German Society Spring Ball held at Westminster College on the night of 2nd March 2024! You are invited to join us for a night in the style of a Viennese Ball full of ballroom and latin dancing.

We will start the evening with a drinks reception, followed by a three-course dinner, and then commence the dancing with an opening ceremony. At midnight, we will change the location and start a roaring afterparty, which we kindly insist you to join. Wine and non-alcoholic alternatives will be supplied throughout the evening and are included in the tickets – at least until the supplies run out. Even then, every ticket includes one additional free drink at the bar.

Don’t worry if you have no previous dance experience, we will hold two beginners dance courses covering the basics on
– Monday, 12 Feb, 9 pm, Palmerston Room, St John’s College: Waltz and Cha-cha-cha

– Sunday, 25 Feb, 8.30 pm, Bradfield Room, Darwin College: Disco Fox and Tango

Please note:
– This is NOT a Mayball-style event, i.e. there will be no additional food stands etc.

– The afterparty is a house party, so that there is always a non-zero chance that we will have to end the party early because of noise disturbance, but we will do our best to avoid it.

Dining tickets: £69 (GSoc members), £79 (Non-members)

Non-dining tickets: £35 (GSoc members), £45 (Non-members)

Please fill out the registration form until 4 Feb, 23.59 to enter the ticket ballot. If you have secured a ticket, you will have time until 7 Feb 23.59 to purchase the tickets, after which any unclaimed tickets will go to people on the waiting list. There is no need for you to bring a partner, as everyone will dance with each other, but you can enter the ballot with someone else together. Also, we will try to balance the number of leaders and followers.
