OUS Sweden - Uppsala Spring Ball 2017

OUS Sweden’s Spring Ball, held in the historic and lively city of Uppsala in April, was a truly splendid occasion, with some 16 Oxonians and friends attending.

The evening started with champagne in the ‘Lagerqvist Library’ in the heart of Uppsala before our group took a short walk to the grand 16th century Uppsala Castle, where the dinner was held.

Musical entertainment from the Allmänna Sången choir – one of Europe’s finest – and ballroom dancing to a live big band orchestra, were among the highlights of what was a truly glamourous occasion.

It was a pleasure to be in the company of like-minded people and have the opportunity to visit the historic castle. We had to admit, the event slightly outdid the ‘common or garden’ Oxford ball!

We are now looking forward to next year’s event – and to meet up again as a society sometime in the not too distant future.
