Girton Spring Ball 2022

We've temporarily simplified our website to support you, our guests, with the most useful information before the ball.

Essentials on the night

Girtonians only

All students must vacate college by 5pm (restrictions on entry from 4pm) on Friday 18th. A map and programme of events will be provided on the day of the ball.


Doors will open at 9pm. We recommended that you arrive in advance of this time to avoid waiting in a long queue.

Taxis will enter through Mares Run and drop off at the top of Orchard Drive. Guests will then walk over to the entrance of the ball under the arch on Tower Drive. Queue Jump ticket holders should also arrive from 9pm but join a priority queue.


Before admission to the Ball is allowed, ticket holders must present:

Covid policy

For entry to the Ball, you will require one of the following:

  2. Evidence of a negative PCR or Lateral Flow test taken no earlier than 5 pm 17th March 2022. Lateral flow tests taken at home will need to be reported into the public reporting system so they appear on your phone.
