What happened to Grad Ball?
Following feedback from students, the Union has created two new events: the Summer Ball at the end of term and Graduation Party during Graduation Week.

In recent years, Grad Ball has been hosted at the Students' Union at the end of Graduation Week. Following feedback from students, the Union has reviewed this model and created two new events to meet the needs of graduates and continuing students, offering students a choice and better value.

You Said:

  • It's difficult to attend Grad Ball in July at the end of the Graduation Week
    • By hosting two events, students have a choice to attend either event or even both (for the less than the price of a single Grad Ball ticket, see below)
    • Hosting the Summer Ball at the end of term should mean fewer students need to budget for hotel accommodation and other additional costs
    • The Graduation Party takes place in the middle of Graduation Week, making it easier and fairer for students to attend, closer to the dates of most graduation ceremonies


  • Grad Ball tickets are too expensive (were £40 to £50)

    • A lot of the costs involved in putting on Grad Ball went towards transforming the Students' Union building into a venue, meaning higher costs compared to hosting at venues already setup for these type of events
    • General sale ticket prices are £23 for the Summer Ball and £10 for the Graduation Party
    • Now combined, attending both events, is only £33 for two special nights, compared to £40-£50 for Grad Ball tickets - or £26 for both if you snag some Early Bird tickets!
