BPP Great Gatsby Prohibition May Ball

Due to overwhelming demand, we have had to raise the capacity of the event 3 times but this event has now sold out and we have now reached our capacity for dining at the venue.

It is unlikely that we will have many any returns HOWEVER...

Some of our students have asked if we can do a "Party Only" ticket from 9pm through to 1am, which basically misses the formal meal. In response to this request, we have gained permision to remove some tables after the dinner and accept more students to the Ball.

The ticket will cost £10 for which you will receive:

2 free drinks vouchers on entry;

two sets of the live 1920s band from 9.00pm onwards;

the 1920s fun casino;

the Gatsby Photobooth;

the Chocolate Fountain; and

the DJ & Disco into the early hours.

Dress remains formal as mentioned below

Partners and friends are also able to purchase this £10 ticket as long as they are accompanied by a BPP student/staff/alumni.

There will only be 50 tickets available so please do book early.


“I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy” so lets “Party Like Gatsby” - F. Scott Fitzgerald.


On the 10th of May 4 years ago, The Great Gatsby Movie, based on the famous novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, went on release. It therefore seems like providence that the London Social Committee voted overwhelmingly by 8 votes to 2 that this should be this year’s May Ball theme… Therefore it gives me great pleasure to present…
