Hey guys,

Can anyone tell me more about May Balls? Do they consist of, as the name suggests, a dance, or is it just one big party? Are you supposed to bring a date? I saw that the tickets are usually sold per two, so is this the case or what is the reason for this?

Cheers

A huuuuge party with music, food, entertainment, dance.(if you want, but NOT ballroom dance) .
No need to bring a date. Many tickets are sold for single. Even for double tickets, you can buy it with your friend of same gender.

There is some variety in scale - Trinity and St John's are traditionally the biggest/most lavish - but the basics are similar at most colleges. They tend to last all night, and there's usually a combination of music (live bands/DJs/silent disco/more unusual things like ceilidh dancing), entertainment (comedy/casino/magicians/dance demos) and lots of different food and drink, which is all included in the fairly hefty entry price.

No need to bring a "date" if you're not in a relationship; most people go with their friends especially if it's their own college ball. Some colleges do still sell their tickets in pairs, but it's perfectly allowed to buy a pair with a friend.

There are also lots of opportunities for working at many of the balls, doing a variety of jobs from serving food and drink, providing first aid cover if suitably qualified, litter picking and helping with set-up and clear-up. These often come with either a free ticket for half or all the night, or are paid (usually only minimum wage though). It gives you an opportunity to see other college's balls if money is a bit tight!
