Thank you for your interest in the Centenary Ball.

After much thought and deliberation, a decision has been taken to cancel the Centenary Ball on Saturday 1 July.

Over the past year we have welcomed hundreds of our Pangbourne Community to a wide range of Centenary events, and there are still several more planned. We also know that the Centenary Ball falls in the middle of a very busy time for many people. Ticket sales to this point have been insufficient for us to proceed with the Centenary Ball without a negative financial impact on the College, and so with regret we are cancelling now.

Please do continue to support our other Centenary Events, including Founders’ Day on 8 July, the First Day Service on 1 September, and the Centenary Flower Festival the weekend of 14-15 October.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do email development@pangbourne.com
