    SO me & my friend are considering going to From Russia With Love in Feb & need to decide pretty quick... I know it's 12 hours long and there's free food drink music etc (some of my favourite things- especially the etc) but is it really worth £55?? This is lots of money, people :woo: Anyone who's been to an oxford union ball before got any convincing opinions on this crucial matter?

    I dont know anything about Oxford balls; or cambridge tbh.
    But i do know that St Johns Cambridge ball was said to be the 7th best party in the world last year by Time Magazine.
    (although for £275 per pair of tickets it better be!)

    sometimes union balls are awesome; sometimes they're a giant waste of money. unfortunately i can't really advise you on what this one will be like...

    The gayness of Oxford's balls are on a par with those of Dale Winton.

    I went to my college's ball in October - It was £80 a ticket, including unlimited food+drink+entertainment

    We had dodgems, circus acts, photographers, casino, fairground rides, a disco tent and various acts in the chapel. There were lots of different drink - ABSINTHE COCKTAILS!!!

    It was an amazing experience - everyone getting dressed up and having a really great night. Totally worth the money IMO :yep:

    Having a lot of your friends at a ball is the key to having a good night, in my opinion, which it's why it's best to go to your own college's or organise a big group to go to someone else's.

    Not saying it'll be bad without loads of company, just that the presence of a big gang of is a good way of guaranteeing a good night in general and keeps you from thinking about whether you're getting good value for the large amount of money that's about to disappear from your account.
