Late Entry


New for 2019, enhance your Ball experience with a sumptuous three-course dinner hosted in one of Peterhouse's atmospheric, panelled reception rooms. Our limited dining tickets bring you to the heart of college, giving you the ultimate and most sophisticated Peterhouse May Ball experience. The May Ball Dinner will begin at 7:30pm on the night of the Ball.

Start your night as you mean to go on at our Champagne Reception. Hosted at the centre of the Ball, a Champagne Reception ticket marries the benefit of queue jump with the luxury of an exclusive champagne bar to ensure your Ball experience begins with a flourish and a fizz. Entrance for those attending Champagne Reception will begin at 8pm on the night of the Ball.

Our ever-popular Queue Jump tickets allow you to get straight to the action of the Ball, ensuring that you can make the most of your night at Peterhouse. Please note that Queue Jump ticket holders can only bypass the initial queue into the Ball. Entrance for those with Queue Jump tickets will begin at 8:30pm on the night of the Ball.

A Standard ticket gives you the full and traditional Peterhouse May Ball experience from the official May Ball start time. Entrance for Standard ticket holders will begin at 9pm on the night of the Ball.

New for 2019 and exclusive to Peterhouse May Ball, our Late Entry tickets are for those who are happy to arrive at the Ball later in order to miss the main queue. Entrance for Late Entry ticket holders will begin at 10pm on the night of the Ball.
