Tickets go on sale from 6pm on Thursday 20th April. They always sell out super-fast, so you’re going to want to buy yours fast to avoid disappointment.

Please note, we want the event to run as smoothly as possible so you will need to arrive before the last entry times.

In order to ensure the event runs smoothly and to make sure you have the best experience, we will have to insist that you arrive at the event before the last entry time.

Each ticket holder will need to collect their wristband from Mermaid Bar (ground floor of the Guild next to Joe’s Bar) before the event. You can collect your wristbands at the following times:

Monday 12th June: 2pm-7pm

Tuesday 13th June: 2pm-7pm

Wednesday 14th June: 2pm-8pm

Thursday 15th June: 12pm-8pm

You’ll need to bring your Student ID with you and your transaction number.

You’ll also need to bring a copy of any non-UoB guests’ ID (driving license or passport) so we can verify their name, age and address.

You can use your Priority Pass to purchase your Grad Ball ticket from 9.30am-5.30pm on Thursday 20th April, before they go on general sale. You only have this short window to get your tickets, so make sure you use it wisely!

Right here on the Guild Tickets website. All you need to do is select your chosen tickets within the ticket windows.

You can buy up to four tickets, however this doesn’t apply to priority passes.

Priority Pass holders are only eligible for priority access to one ticket. Priority Pass holders can buy extra tickets on general sale.

Our Standard ticket costs £45 and our Plus After Party ticket costs £55. We have a limited number of Early Bird tickets available, with prices starting from just £35!

Grad Ball is open to everyone. We know from previous years that the majority of tickets are purchased by graduating students, however as students are able to bring a non-UoB guest or a friend from another year, we’re unable to restrict tickets to only the graduating class.

In a word: FANCY. Get your black ties and glam dresses at the ready, and prepare for the red-carpet treatment!

You can bring a guest, you’ll just need to purchase an additional ticket once they go on general sale. Guests must attend with the ticketholder / UoB student as tickets are purchased with your Student ID.

We will be taking over campus to bring you a fantastic party – the only way to celebrate the end of the year!

There will be fantastic tunes, fairground rides, karaoke, street food and more! Plus, if you get our Grad Ball After Party ticket (you must have purchased a Grad Ball Standard ticket), you’ll gain access to our amazing club night at the Guild, so you can dance into the early hours with your friends.

First, make sure you're typing in your correct billing information and card details - it's easy to forget whether the bank has your home or term-time address. Make sure you enter the address you registered your card to, and not just where you happen to be living now!

If that doesn't solve the problem, send us an email at website@guild.bham.ac.uk and we'll do our best to help you out. You'll make it easy for us to help you if you include your full name, student number AND a screenshot of your problem.
