I learned from this Brazilian fan blog that Skandar attended Pembroke’s June Event last year, mistakenly called a “May Ball” in a caption on the private photo. I did, however, find a public photo on the Flickr account “pembroke-eldorado.” This image is now in the gallery.
All of Cambridge’s colleges celebrate a May Ball every year. However, some colleges like Pembroke alternate May Balls and June Events. According to Helen Charman at Cambridge’s The Varsity, “May balls are for many the epitome of the Cambridge experience: black tie, champagne, dancing until dawn, punting under the influence and the probable promise of regrets in the morning.”
“El Dorado: The Lost City of Gold” was the theme of last year’s June Event, which took place on June 20. Tickets cost £67. Musical acts included Two Spot Gobi, Round Table Knights (from Switzerland), James Christie, and Churchill Jazz Band.
El Dorado is the legendary “Lost City of Gold” that has fascinated, and so far eluded, explorers since the days of the Spanish Conquistadors. Though many have searched for years on end to find this city of gold, no evidence of such a place has been found. For one Night only the magical city will exist in the grounds of Pembroke College.
Fans can find more information on Wikipedia, Facebook, and Cambridge’s student paper The Tab, which reviewed this event. Pembroke has already set up an information page on its 2013 May Ball, which will be held on June 19.
I will not reproduce private photos, videos, and information about Skandar and Georgie Henley – whether they are at school, at home, doing extracurricular activities, or filming a project. I will, however, reproduce whatever comes from public sources. What matters is the source, not the event or location.
