The Evening

Our 175th Anniversary celebrations culminate with a spectacular ball set in the College’s magnificent estate. The evening will begin at 6pm with a ‘Sussex Bubbles’ drinks reception in the gardens surrounding the Chapel. The party will then move to the marquee in the Lower Quad for a sumptuous summertime feast followed by some ‘kick off your shoes’ dancing to the hottest party band in the country and a fireworks finale to remember for the next 175 years.


The Food

Award winning Caper and Berry are renowned for serving up glorious food at intimate parties and summer balls as much as they are for wowing guests at the BAFTAs. Lancing is delighted to be hosting this occasion in collaboration with a company who are dedicated to producing dazzling and delicious food.


The Band

The Dark Blues are celebrated all over the country as one of England’s greatest party bands. They pride themselves on only working with top class musicians, and their secret weapon is lead singer Annabel Williams. Vocal coach to the stars, she has been responsible for polishing up the voices of the future on ITV’s The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, and has worked with everyone from Amy Winehouse and Katie Melua to Michael Bolton. They have played at private parties for members of the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, as well as for the centenary celebrations of the London Symphony Orchestra. We can’t wait for our Lancing cloisters to be ringing to the sound of their music and voices!
