In a sentimental speech, Hawking expressed his love for the College, whilst accentuating the suspense with characteristic pauses:

I am delighted to be here tonight. I have been a fellow at Caius for over 49 years and have grown very close to the College over that time.’

‘I wrote one of my most talked about publications whilst living in West Road’

‘I am honoured to have been invited here tonight to reveal the theme of this year’s May Ball, as it is one that is very dear to my heart’

‘I am sure that you will all be as excited as I am when you find out what the committee has chosen’

‘I am proud to announce that the theme of the Gonville and Caius May Ball 2014 is A Brief History of Time
