Coming to the Summer Ball?

Make sure you read this

How do I buy food and drinks?

The Ball operates with vouchers and the bars do not accept cash or card payments. If you’ve not already bought your vouchers, click the big button and grab yours now – you’ll get extra vouchers for free and it will save you time on the night.

How do I collect my wristband?

Wristbands must be picked up from SU Reception between 10am on June 5th and 3pm June 9th. SU Reception is open from 9am-5pm.

Only you may collect your wristband and it will be put on for you. Students will need to bring their reg card, Alumni their Alumni card and guests some photo ID. Everyone will need to bring photo ID to the event, without ID you won’t be let in.

Only Alumni can collect their wristbands at the Ball, there will not be any other wristbands at the site and staff will not be able to give out uncollected wristbands. If you do not have your wristband or you lose it you will not be allowed in.

When should I arrive?

Priority ticket holders have an extra hour of partying so can arrive after 8pm, for all other ticket types entry is from 9pm. You must be inside the Ball by 10pm.

What do I wear?

It’s a formal affair and that means suits, dresses and similar. If you turn up in trainers, shorts (including suits with shorts) or jeans you will be refused entry and asked to go and get changed.

Go easy during pre-drinks.

If you’re going to have a drink before you arrive, please don’t overdo it. If we think you’ve had too much to drink before you arrive you won’t be allowed in. Remember the event runs until 5am so pace yourself.

Other helpful bits and pieces

There’ll be a cloakroom at the event for you to use free of charge.

There is no readmission to the Ball, if you leave the venue you won’t be able to come back in.

If you’ve got any questions just reply to this email and we’d be happy to help.

See you at the Ball,
Your SU x
