ONE OF OUR
We have pulled out all the stops to keep you entertained throughout the night. As Merton transforms into a starry winter wonderland, we invite you to escape into a world of extravagant entertainment. Relive your best childhood memories with dodgems, 90s arcade games, and funfair rides. Challenge your friends to a karaoke battle or try your hand at gambling in our very own casino. If you tire from the rides and games, recover in the toasty shisha tent, relax in front of a magic show, or watch a ballet performance.
FOOD & DRINK
Come for the attractions, stay for the food. In addition to formal dining, the quads of Merton College will be replete with some of the finest food the city has to offer, allowing you to feast throughout the night, and with multiple bars set up across college, your favourite drink is never far away.
From Oxford’s greatest bands to a major international headliner, let your whole night play out to a soundtrack of non-stop live music. With our varied music selection across three stages, there’s sure to be something for everyone’s taste. Our main stage will feature local bands and DJs throughout the night, ending in an exciting international headliner. If that’s not quite your scene, Mob Quad will be turned into an intimate alternative stage, featuring the best of Oxford’s underground, techno and hip-hop talent throughout the night.
