The SU Bath presents - The Summer Ball 2023
Saturday 3 June 19:00-02:00
University of Bath Campus
Come along to the biggest event of the year as we transform venues all over campus for the ultimate Summer Ball 2023.
Celebrate the end of the year and welcome in the summer with 4000 other students. 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 campus to find that perfect photo opportunity.
So, get your black-tie attire at the ready and immerse yourself in an experience like no other.
Only available to buy on this website.
Students can purchase 1 student ticket or 1 student & 1 guest ticket. Guest tickets are for non-University of Bath Students only and can only be purchased by someone who has purchased/is purchasing a student ticket. Please only buy tickets for yourselves and 1 other non-student guest, do not purchase tickets for other students.
Tickets are £49 + £1 for a reusable cup for students and £59 + £1 for a reusable cup for guests.
As a Students’ Union we can get tax relief on some events for our members, which we do for the Summer Ball. Unfortunately, this does not apply to tickets sold to anyone who isn’t a student at Bath, and therefore the price is higher for guests as VAT applies.
Tickets will come in the form of wristbands, if you are not going to be in Bath to collect your wristband between 25 – 30 May you can then please select delivery during the purchasing process. Your wristband will be sent by recorded delivery. Please note we will not deliver to a University accommodation address and the address you submit can’t be changed at a later date.
Tickets are on sale online only:
Tickets will go on sale on to Graduating Students on: Monday 13 March at 13:00
Any remaining tickets will go on sale on: Monday 20 March at 13:00.
Once you've added your ticket to your basket, please return to the homepage and click on the basket to complete your purchase.
Please note, we have done everything we can to ensure the ticket process runs smoothly but due to the sheer demand and amount of tickets available there is a chance the website could run more slowly. Please be patient and keep trying.
Re-usable cups introduced for Summer Ball 2023
As part of the SU’s commitment towards sustainability, tickets for Summer Ball this year will include a £1 re-usable cup for you to use throughout the event. Here’s how it works:
- On arrival your welcome drink will be served in a re-usable cup.
- Keep hold of your cup and take it to the bar when you buy a drink.
- The bar staff will swap your used cup for a fresh one with your drink.
- Don’t worry if you’ve gone from a double pint of Pimms to a Strawberry Daiquiri – bring any size cup to the bar and staff will swap you for the correct size cup.
- If you lose your cup, you can buy a new one for £1 at the bar.
- At the end of the night you can take your cup with you or donate it back to the SU.
Our re-usable cups will save over 10,000 disposable cups at Summer Ball, and even more at future events.
