In pictures: Imperial students celebrate at the Summer Ball

Last Saturday Imperial was transformed for the annual student ball.

Organised by the Imperial students’ union, the Summer Ball marks the end of the academic year for students at the College. This year’s theme was Las Vegas, and even the Queen’s Tower was suitably decorated:

During the evening, students tried out the fairground rides:

They were treated to performances from the IC Big Band:

And the award-winning Techtonics a cappella group:

In keeping with the Las Vegas theme, students could try their luck with roulette, black jack and poker:

Guests could also take a spin on the dodgems:

And fireworks over the Queen’s Lawn wowed the crowd:
