We’ve had a phenomenal amount of interest for this year’s Grad Ball already.

Please remember that as we announced yesterday, the ticket release date has been pushed back by one day as a response to your feedback, they will be available to buy from 9:30am on THURSDAY.

We have received some queries via email and through Facebook, the below information should provide answers to the most frequently asked questions.

?? FULL TABLE / GROUP PURCHASES ??
Due to demand for tickets, tables cannot be reserved or ‘held’. You can purchase a full table, however we will need payments to be made for all tickets at the time of purchase, along with the names & matriculation numbers of each member of your group (and the names of any plus one).

To guarantee that you are sitting next to your friends, it is strongly advised that you buy your tickets at the same time.

?? GUESTS / PLUS-ONES ??
RGU students are permitted to bring one guest only. You must buy a ticket for your guest and supply us with their name at the point of purchase.

?? BUYING MULTIPLE TICKETS ??
You can buy a ticket for your friend(s) if they are unable to get to Deeview Student Store, but you must provide us with their names and matriculation numbers when purchasing.

?? PAYMENT METHODS ??
Payments can be made by cash or by credit/debit card at the Deeview Student Store.

There will be two queuing systems in place on Thursday, one for cash payments and one for card payments. Please make sure that you are in the correct queue.

?? MATRICULATION NUMBERS ??
You must supply us with your matriculation number when purchasing your ticket. If you are purchasing multiple tickets, you must provide the matriculation numbers of each member of your group along with the names of any plus-ones.

?? ONLINE SALES ??
A limited number of full tables will be available to purchase through the Union website, but please be aware that this allocation sold out within minutes of being released last year.

The best chance of securing tickets is to buy directly from Deeview Student Store.

If you have purchased a table through our online system, we will contact you via email to provide us with the names and matriculation numbers of your group, and to collect any dietary requirements.

?? TABLE CAPACITIES ??
Tables can accommodate a maximum of 12 people. If you are buying tickets for a smaller group size, please be aware that there may be other ticket-holders allocated to your table in order to bring the total number up to 12.

A number of 4 person tables will also be available to buy. These are located on the balcony of the Beach Ballroom. Please ask our staff in the Deeview Student Store for more information regarding these tables.

?? MENU ??
We are working closely with the venue to confirm a fantastic menu for this event, full details will be released soon. The four courses will consist of: Starter, Soup, Main Course, Dessert.

The main course will be a carvery, with a choice of meats available. The vegetarian main course will be a vegetable wellington.
