Following lacklustre ticket sales last year, the college set a sales target for this year's committeeTrinity Hall June Event

Trinity Hall has cancelled its June Event after the committee failed to reach a ticket target set by the college.

A statement released jointly by the Trinity Hall JCR and MCR committees said that "insufficient ticket sales" had made the event "not financially viable". The statement continued by saying that "we are extremely grateful to the June Event Committee for the work they have done this year, and to the student and fellow representatives who have overseen the planning of the event."

According to a committee Facebook post, the college set an “extremely early deadline” to sell enough tickets to break even. Varsity understands that the deadline was a precautionary measure taken by the college following lacklustre ticket sales for its 2017 June Event.

June Event Review: Trinity Hall 2017

The committee took to social media ten days ago in an attempt to stop the ‘crisis’, calling upon students to purchase tickets before the sales deadline on Monday.

The committee estimated that more than 600 tickets had been sold prior to the event’s cancellation, but assured students that all tickets which have already been bought will be fully refunded. The event had been priced at £85 each for standard tickets and £95 for queue jump tickets.

The statement indicated that "The JCR and MCR committees will be working closely with all other members of the college community in the coming months to ensure the event returns next year as the highlight of Trinity Hall's events calendar."

The June Event had been scheduled for 20th June 2018.
