It’s confirmed: EGB set to take place on July 17th

It looks like summer is finally starting to look up

The news that everyone has been waiting for has finally been announced – the Enchanted Garden Ball will take place on July 17th at Shobrooke Park Country House.

Celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary, this year it seems as if we are in for a “real treat.” If you don’t know what EGB is, well. Think thousands of students dressed up to the max going on fairground rides, dancing in various tents, trying food from one of the food trucks, getting drunk… and you should get the idea. In 2019 they even had an open air theatre screening the Champions League final!

As last year’s EGB was cancelled due to Covid-19, according to the event’s Facebook page, this year’s event “will be making up for lost time, treating you to even more divine delights with a helping of hedonism, a dash of decadence and supreme surprises…”

Make sure to set a reminder because tickets go on sale at 6pm on March 26th, with prices starting at £49 for the entrance ticket. But this year, as an extra surprise, you can camp at EGB. Tickets are £55 for both entrance and camping, or you can pay £12 to upgrade your existing ticket. These tickets include early access to the grounds and, of course, a quick walk back to the campsite to avoid the long coach journey home.

Tickets from last year’s EGB will be automatically transferred to this year’s event. But don’t worry, if you can no longer attend the event, you can apply for a refund up to March 28th.

So, if you don’t have tickets, be ready this Friday as they are always snapped up like hot cakes.
