Social Chairman

Social Chairman: Aydin Sandalli

The Social Chair is responsible for managing the Ents Committee and The June Ball Committee.

The Ents Committee organise and execute both small and large-scale events within Castle throughout the year. These events range from themed formals and hounds, to balls such as Ladies Night and Halfway Hall and Castle Day. The Ents committee, as one of the larger societies within college, has a lot to offer to anyone – positions on the team include organising the logistics and administration, seeking sponsorship, selecting food and drink, recruiting entertainment acts and creating all the aesthetics.

The Social Chair is also the President of The June Ball Committee, responsible for recruiting and coordinating a team of who work tirelessly to organise one of the largest and most prestigious balls in the country. The Committee structure their ideas around the President’s chosen theme, which then is revealed on the night of the ball – the committee are therefore responsible for keeping Castle’s biggest secret all year round.
