Based on your feedback, we have tried to keep ticket prices as low as possible for Grad Ball 2024. As you can see by the breakdown below, last year a large portion of the event spend was on free food and drink and event theming. By removing these elements, we hope that the event is accessible to even more people than before!  

Grad Ball 2023 ticket prices were:

Early Bird: £30 + booking fee

General Release: £35 + booking fee
