This year's theme is lightyears away from last year's Bacchanalia ball, which transported students back to Ancient Rome.

Spring Ball President, Owen Jack, said: “The whole Committee is thrilled to announce this new and daring theme. It’s something the Union has never done before and it’s very exciting to watch it take shape already. We can’t wait for everyone to find out the exciting plans we have in store for the biggest Union event of next term – watch this space!”
