1 year ago By Edinburgh Uni Cricket

The Order of Events and the full list of Prizes up for grabs at this year's Charity Auction and Raffle this Saturday at the Carlton!

Less than 3 days to go until the University's cricketing calendar's social highlight, the EUCC Cricket Ball 2017! We hope you are all just as excited as we are, so read on to find out how the night goes down...

It all kicks off at 6:30pm, down at the Carlton Hotel:

6:30 - 7pm
Reception with Prosecco and Drinks

7 - 9:30pm
Between the starter and mains, our Glorious Leader Oscar Dimdore-Miles will be delivering the much anticipated Presidents Speech of 2017. Though we're not sure a certain first lady will be expecting a proposal this year, Oscar is sure to entertain. After the mains we will have the Raffles (keep an eye out for tickets being sold) followed by dessert.

9:30 - 10:30pm
Slideshow and Auction

10:30 - 12pm
The Ceilidh

12 - 1am
DJ set to finish things off

Following this, the mighty of EUCC will head off to Bourbon, with free entry to everyone with a ball ticket! Be sure to be there or else miss out on the sharp cutting of shapes that is always guaranteed after the Cricket Ball.
