St. Aidan's College Summer Ball

Last night, a long awaited event took place on the hill at Durham University: St. Aidan's Summer Ball. This college has been my home for the last 9 months and what a time it has been - I seriously don't want it to end! But to complete such an amazing Freshers year, SocCom worked endlessly throughout the last few weeks of term to produce the most wonderful celebration, in the style of 'Alice in Wonderland'. It was certainly an unforgettable 11 hours, so here is a just a small taster from the party of the year.

The dining room transformed into a banquet hall

The walls of the JCR all covered in paper flowers

The 'Hatter's house' bar

Just a few of the fairground rides!

Katie's hair, held in place with over 100 grips - my own masterpiece of the evening!

Thank you SocCom for working so hard to produce such an amazing event!! 

For more of a fashion insight into the event, you can see my post on Summer Ball Outfit Ideas here, which is inspired by some of the best loved 'Alice in Wonderland' characters!
