The Worcester Ball will be filled with the drinks of your dreams of Arcadian alcoholic bliss! We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Circle Wine to serve the prestigious A. Robert for our Champagne Reception, and from that first glass the Ball’s drink experience will keep exceeding your expectations. We will be releasing more announcements of our specific partnerships over the coming months, but expect an incredible range of cocktails spread over the vast grounds of Worcester from four cocktail bars. Every cocktail we serve has an exact non-alcoholic version, to ensure than non-drinkers (and those of us that need to pace our alcohol consumption…) will enjoy our cocktails as much as drinkers. We will also be serving drinks that we can guarantee you will never have drunk before. For the spirit aficionados amongst you, there will be multiple tastings scattered around Worcester for you to enjoy. And finally, for the lucky dining ticket holders, you will be receiving a description of the incredible wine you will be drinking alongside your three-course meal soon, which includes a very special dessert wine. All in all, expect an impressive variety and exceptional standard of drinks at the Worcester Ball this summer.
From the moment you enter Arcadia, the culinary experience won't cease to impress. Explore the grounds and new feasts will appear at every corner, charming the senses. Amongst the trees of Worcester's orchard, guests will stumble across some of Oxford's finest suppliers, serving up treats that'll excite and delight. From fresh and innovative dishes to the classics you know and love. Relax beside the lake with something sweet while you let the evening unfold around you or refuel on some of London's most prestigious street food vendors. Delve into Arcadia however you wish, but one thing is for certain: the edible journey which awaits you will transport you into a world of utopian delight, from your arrival and well into the following morning.
General Entertainment: Not one corner of Worcester College’s gorgeous grounds will be left untouched by our entertainment team. Prepare yourself for a sensational night; you will be whisked away on our classic fairground rides, immersed in new dance styles, and treated to luxurious activities in our relaxation tent. And of course, professional photographers and photo booths will be there to capture every memory of your Arcadian evening, to keep long after the night of decadence is over.
Music: The very best of old and new come together for our Ball’s music. We have a huge variety of vibrant live acts, banging DJs, and intimate acoustic artists. The beautiful grounds of Worcester will feature no fewer than three musical stages, and no matter what your musical preferences are, we guarantee there will be something for you to sink your teeth into. Watch this space for announcements about some truly exciting headline acts that will be revealed nearer the time! Get hyped for the main act which we cannot wait for you to experience it. We present to you: the perfect Arcadian soundtrack.
