Caius May Ball 2008 Ready to party! Sophie, Joe and Philippa Sophie wastes no time in helping herself… The dining hall, ready for a five-course feast Oliver and Abi, looking splendid! Mm… (and nice Apprentice joke) Eleanor, Owen, Oliver and Abi enjoy some Pimm’s The main stage – pictured as British Sea Power played That’s only Stephen Hawking behind us…! Hurray! Rides! Lucy uses her imagination to make up for a lack of speed Free ice-cream reduces me to a Gollum pose But here’s a nicer photo of me with Abi! The Mind Reader dazzles and delights Absolutely delicious martinis Eleanor and Laura! They really did cater this party to my tastes (And the alcohol didn’t go down badly either) Quote me: ‘Gender-based pride generates its own warmth’ My favourite act 😀 Lovely view from the Cobra Beer tent The always-wonderful Ben Vincent with Sam and Oliver A cup of early-morning tea is much appreciated!
