The exciting end-of-week party for ORA students staying at Balliol, University, Queen’s and St Catherine’s was Venetian themed, with masks, gondolas and extravagant fountains emerging from the woodwork to set the scene. Hosted at Kingston Bagpuize, an elegant manor house, the party was a huge success.
Twinkling fairy lights lined the tent and gave a serene, twilight atmosphere to the marquee, whilst the warm glow of a Venetian streetlamp invited partygoers in from the cold canals of Oxford and into Venice for the night.
With the students comfortably settled in Venice, the music and dancing kicked off with loud tunes and bright lights creating a disco atmosphere. Pupils piled into the gondola in the corner for photo opportunities, whilst others admired the beauty of the ivy-clad fountain.
With loads of decadent snacks and drinks, everyone partied the night away in Venice and had a great time celebrating the end of their first week together.
