June Event

June Events are alternatives to May Balls held by some Cambridge colleges.

The necessarily high price of May Ball tickets motivates some colleges to host Events instead.[citation needed] These evenings, tending to be shorter in duration and of a much lower key, are more affordable but constrained by a much lower budget.

Alternation[edit]

Some colleges chose to alternate between a May Ball and a June Event each year.[citation needed] Emmanuel College's May Ball is held in May Week every other year, with alternate years featuring an Event on Suicide Sunday.[citation needed]

In 2006, members of the College voted in favour of restoring Pembroke College's lost tradition of hosting a May Ball for 2007.[citation needed] In 2008 they will hold another June Event.
