One of the most well known weeks at Cambridge is ‘May Week’ – a week after exams spend going to posh balls, eating fancy food, and probably drinking far too much Champagne. However, although many College’s have slightly excessive and overpriced balls, Murray Edwards offers a much more relaxed garden party at the end of May Week – the perfect event to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather with friends. With this year’s theme of “Castle Hill Carnival” it is sure to be an exciting and colourful event.
However, it is also one of the more popular garden parties, and with tickets selling out within hours last year I know it would be important to get in there early to book my place! However, I was due to be spending that particular Monday in London (see my previous post on my BP Ultimate Field Trip Final adventure) and knew it would be unlikely that any tickets would be left when I returned late that evening. Luckily, we are allowed to book up to three additional guest tickets – so I recruited one of my friends to the task.
Now, as the proud owner of a Murray Edwards College Garden Party 2014 ticket, I am beginning my search for the perfect carnival-themed outfit! I’ll keep you updated!
