Summer Ball - 11 June 2012
(14 June 2012)
On Monday 11th June, 500 Butlerites were transported to the Stadium of Light for the 007-themed Summer Ball. Keen football fans went early to watch the England Bar in a stadium bar, before the rest arrived for what was a phenomenal night. It was a fantastic atmosphere at a brilliant venue, with a great mix of dining, music, fairground rides, casino, and much more entertainment. The party continued back at Butler, with the Survivors’ Photo being taken at 6am.
Huge thanks go to Helen Young and Jade Bestley for organising the Ball, along with all of the Ball Committee.
