PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Cambridge University's iconic May Balls have returned this week as students celebrate the end of term and their exams. Students were spotted celebrating in style as the epic events return after a three year hiatus due to the pandemic. Last night (June 20) a spectacular firework display lit up the skies above Cambridge as students from Jesus and Trinity colleges enjoyed their May Balls. Twinkling lights could be spotted through the trees along the Backs, offering a tiny glimpse into the other side of our city. The first Trinity May Ball was held in 1866, with the tradition quickly spreading to other colleges, but events were cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Organisers of this year’s 156th anniversary event said it would enjoy the “rich tradition” of “delightful music, inspiring fireworks and enchanting cuisine”.
