On Saturday 1st February 2020 Durham Castle will open its doors to University College MCR’s annual Charity Ball. MYTHOS is a black-tie evening of Grecian opulence starting with a three-course banquet in the Temple of Apollo & leading on to a night packed full of entertainment, bands & more! Previous years have featured silent discos, treasure hunts, casinos & nerf wars and have raised up to £4600 for great causes.


Tickets go on sale on Saturday 5th October at 12 noon for the MCR and Saturday 12th for JCR/SCR/Alumni with pricing of £69 for dining & £39 for Ents (non-dining), each including a complimentary drinks reception.


This event is a rare opportunity to get multiple places on a prestigious Castle Ball so whether you're Castle or non-Castle, MCR or JCR, student or non-student make sure you get yourselves (and all your guests) a spot!


This year's charitable donations are split between Alex's Awareness CampaignOlivia Inspires & CCA who have generously offered to help staff the event. Castle MCR donates 80% of the total earnings to the charity. The final 20% is retained by the MCR which is used as a buffer against future losses of the charity ball. It is not spent on members. 


UPDATE: Dining tickets are now sold out, but a few Ents (non-dining) tickets remain
