Ex­clu­sive din­ners, el­e­gant cock­tail gath­er­ings and par­ties ga­lore

The bi­en­nial ball for Hong Kong’s Ox­ford and Cam­bridge So­ci­ety proved to be a mag­i­cal evening. With the theme A Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream, Shake­spearean ref­er­ences were preva­lent through­out the night—guests donned flower crowns, pro­fes­sional ac­tors gave brief per­for­mances at the start of each course and cock­tails called Love Po­tions were served. Guests sipped a lovely English fizz from Chapel Down, then snacked on candy floss and pop­corn at the end of the meal. The evening’s live auc­tion was led by Jonathan Stone, Christie’s head of Asian Art. All pro­ceeds went to ben­e­fit the so­ci­ety’s schol­ar­ship fund, which pro­vides grants to worth­while projects es­tab­lished by Ox­ford and Cam­bridge stu­dents around the world. Danc­ing kicked off straight af­ter the live auc­tion and din­ner, and the dance­floor was packed un­til the wee hours of the morn­ing.
