Exonians young and old enjoy 700th anniversary ball

Students, alumni, staff, fellows, family and friends came together on 28 June for Exeter College’s 700th anniversary ball. It was the biggest celebration in the College’s history, with over 1,600 revellers.

As well as filling all corners of the College’s Turl Street site, including the Rector’s and Fellows’ gardens, the ball took over Radcliffe Square and Brasenose Lane for a celebration to remember. There were three music stages and highlights included performances from Gaz Coombes, Nero, Emma Ballantine, Beard Museum, Stornoway, Spring Offensive and Out of the Blue.
