10 things you need to know for the Ball

The Summer Ball takes place on Saturday 19th May 2018 so here's a few things to make sure you enjoy the evening without a hitch.

Collect your ticket if you haven't done so yet. The last time for collection is 4:30pm on Friday 18th May 2018. Uncollected tickets will be on the door at the Ball but expect a longer entrance time so we recommend collecting your ticket beforehand.

2. Doors open at 7:30pm

The Ball opens at 7:30pm and we have acts on from the very beginning so arrive for then or 9pm at the very latest. Last entry is 10pm but you will miss some great acts if you leave it until then.

3. It's at the former Canterbury Prison

4. Get cash out beforehand

Get your cash out beforehand. There will be no cashpoint at the Ball but bars will take both cards (although without cashback) and cash. Cash will make things a lot easier. There is a cashpoint in Anslem Foyer, at The Lounge and also in Waitrose too.

5. Don't forget your ticket & Photo ID

Bring your ticket. No ticket, no entry. You will also need to bring photo ID too such as a passport or driving licence. This is the terms of our licence so there's nothing we can do about it.
