May ball handbook
Our May ball handbook [PDF, 0.6MB] assists organisers of May balls and June events in:
- making their entertainments run smoothly for the benefit of those attending
- ensuring adequate public safety
- ensuring unreasonable disturbance is not caused to local residents
The organisation of a May ball is complex and time consuming. The handbook comprises general advice with a series of appendices on specific areas.
The law on licensing has changed. This means that colleges will need to hold a premises licence that includes the ball.
