The search is on for the most important of roles – a new President for the 2014 Hughes Hall May Ball.
The May Ball is the highest point of the year and, despite its name, takes place in the middle of June. We expunge the harrowing memories of exams and focus on enjoying Cambridge at its most glorious: an overabundance of good weather, drink, food, games, dancing, bow-ties and beautiful Hughesians. It is little surprise, then, that May Ball survivors’ photos usually occupy a prominent space in the homes of Cambridge alumni, often next to the matriculation photo.
We’re now looking for someone to lead a May Ball committee that will be charged with organising this evening of celebration and excess for about 600 people. As a reward for your efforts, you will receive free entry. We will also liaise on supplementary rewards such as swaps to other college May Balls. You also get the immense satisfaction/drunken glory from many happy ball goers on the big day. Given the size and reputation of a May Ball, participating will also be a great experience for whatever you choose to do in the future.
To apply, please send an email to me by 11.59pm on Wednesday the 23rd, briefly describing yourself: why you’d like the position, any relevant experience you have and any other information that you’d like to add.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
