Step into an alternate universe as campus transforms for the Summer Ball 2022.

Venues all over the University will open their doors for us to celebrate the end of the year and to welcome in the summer. With your favourite drink in hand, take a journey through campus surrounded by street performers, live acts and DJs. See the views in all their glory from the top of the Ferris wheel, and then explore the secret venues to find that perfect photo opportunity.

So get your black tie attire at the ready and immerse yourself in an experience like no other.


The Acts

The multiple chart-topping DJ/producers will be headlining our Summer Ball with a set sure to be packed full of hits. From “Feel The Love” to “Waiting All Night” to “These Days” - the collective have amassed a string of huge anthems over the past decade and are one of the most successful DJ acts in the U.K.


WOODY COOK, son to Zoe Ball and Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim), is a successful DJ bringing you all the latest tunes in his own unique style.

How is your money spent?

Ever wondered where the money made from Summer Ball tickets goes? Find out how your ticket money is broken down here.

Ticket Collection

Tickets come in the form of Wristbands and can be collected on Thursday 26 May, Friday 27 May and Monday 30 May from 11:00 – 15:00 from The Tub. Some of us will be knee deep in exams during this period, but we’ll definitely need a break at some point so do factor this in!

  • You must have your library card with you for collection
  • If you really can’t tear yourself away from the books or you’re sunning yourself on an early holiday, we do allow friends to collect on your behalf. All you need to do is give your friend a copy of your confirmation email as well as an email / letter stating you are giving them permission to collect on your behalf. This must include your Student ID Number and the number of wristbands being collected.

Summer Ball Sustainability

As part of our drive to make our SU events more sustainable here is the approach we have taken for the Summer Ball.

Re-usable event cups

In previous years we have had to use around 20,000 disposable plastic cups in our outside bars. This year we will hire re-usable cups which will be washed at Lime tree ready to be used again. When you buy a drink, you will be asked to pay a £1 deposit for your cup. Each time you buy a drink you can take the cup back to the bar which will be replaced for a clean one free of charge. At the end of the night, you can return your cup to the bar and claim your £1 deposit back or leave your cup at a collection point by the exit and donate your deposit to RAG’s Big 4 charities.

Event maps

We have created a digital event map which you can access using QR codes around the event, saving loads of printing and paper. The Event Map will show you timings and locations of what is happening throughout the night.

Casino & Free drinks vouchers

This year these have been made using recycled business cards. They have not been dated specifically so they can be re used for future events.

Use of local suppliers

Where possible we have used local suppliers to keep down the carbon footprint.

The Important stuff you need to know!

  • Wristbands are limited to two per person.
  • Your guest can be a non-Bath University student, but they must be over the age of 18 and have proof of ID with them at the event.
  • To enter the event, you must wear the wristband and have your Student ID with you.
  • Please keep your wristbands safe as we cannot replace lost wristbands under any circumstances.
  • No refunds are available once a ticket has been purchased.
  • We do have to limit numbers to the ball due to capacity restrictions (calculated by our indoor venues) so please buy yours early to avoid disappointment. We have always sold out within minutes of our second release.
  • You must be able to collect your wristband on campus during the collection dates. If you are not going to be on campus during the purchase process, there will be an option to have your wristband sent by recorded delivery. This will cost an extra £3.50 to a UK address or £4.00 for overseas. Please note we will not deliver to a University accommodation address and the address you submit can’t be changed at a later date.
  • Those who pay for delivery will have their wristbands posted out by recorded delivery which will need to be signed for. You will be emailed when it has been sent. Once wristband sales are closed, we can’t post any wristbands out if delivery wasn’t selected during the sales process.
  • Lost wristbands will not be replaced, so please keep them safe.
  • If for any reason you sure unable to attend, you must not resell your ticket for greater than its face value. We are also unable to help facilitate any re-sales.
