Ban People Making Profit on Grad Ball Tickets

Recently, on Facebook, various people have been selling “extra” very expensive Grad Ball tickets.

I believe this is complete abuse of the high demand and that these people should be banned from Grad Ball and even banned from other university events in the future if they’re not even graduating.

I am one of the many people who missed out on a ticket for Grad Ball and will not be paying £83 for one on eBay.

I have evidence of certain people selling their’s should you wish to see - please provide the best email address to send this.

Hi, Thank you for your suggestion. The demand for Grad Ball tickets this year was unprecedented, and has certainly presented the Union with new chalenges. Unfortunately the Union does not currently have a platform to offer resale internally, or any mechanism to stop students from selling tickets on, as well as looking at options such as limiting the number of tickets that students can buy, or restricting ticket sales to graduating students (though there were only 14 non-graduating students who purchased tickets). It's something that we will certainly look into for future events if there is a possibility of a similar situation happening and stuents feel that this is a good use of resource. Thank you for your feedback, we'll tkae it on board.

Many thanks, 

Evie Reilly (VP DCI)
