We are delighted to inform you of one of the brightest European events - the Christmas Rector’s Ball, held in the Ceremonial City Hall, Oxford (UK).
The Ball brings together rectors, innovation centres leaders, outstanding scientists and representatives of the scientific and cultural communities from more than thirty countries of Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. The key mission of the ball is the recognition of scientific people, and anyone involved in the intellectual development of society, who have contributed to the introduction of spirituality as well as charity into the modern world.
The rectors of the best universities in the world lead the ball. They proceed in solemn procession to the hall in academic robes and full dress, cheered by the audience.
The event gets everyone into the mood of the past - the era of chivalry and the European cultural explosion. Beautiful music, a classical dance program with the best European dancing waltz masters, gourmet cuisine, contests and raffles, gifts to the guests of the ball and concert performances all contribute to the atmosphere of the event.

The Ball organisers do their best to ensure that every participant enjoys the event to the fullest of their ability and has the happiest possible memories.
