On 18th February 2017, Catz Ball will make a highly anticipated return to the Oxford Ball scene.
Continuing on from the highly successful colour based theme of ‘Kaleidoscope’ in 2014, Catz will this time be transforming the night sky by taking on the theme ‘Lumina’ and using light to produce a Winter Ball unlike any other.
Our dedicated team are working to make sure to dazzle you through vibrant tastes and colours that will set your palate alight. From soft-shell crab burgers and seafood paella to Tibetan curry and mac ‘n’ cheese, there really is something for everyone at Catz Ball. We will strive to cater to all dietary requirements, but feel free to get in touch with any specifics.
If you’re feeling thirsty, we have 8 bars spread across the site serving drinks ranging from freshly made cocktails to Irish coffee and mulled wine. And if you’re running low on energy, we’ve even got a Red Bull bar to keep you going through the last few tracks!
The dining menu can be viewed at the following link.
With four music stages, a chill out zone, and a variety of non-musical entertainment, there will be something for everyone. Lose yourself in the world we create and have fun from dark til dawn. And what would ‘Lumina’ be without light-based entertainment? Let loose your competitive side in our very popular Laser Tag arena.
So far we’ve announced urban reggae legends Laid Blak, up-and-coming house duo Midnight City and infamous drag act Sink the Pink. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more act announcements.
Both dining and non-dining tickets for the ball have now sold out. Please email us should you have any questions.
There is a 3.8% booking fee on the price of every ticket.
