Graduate Ball 2019 and Awards: Fire & Ice

The 20th Annual Graduate Ball and Awards will be a night like no other.

Descending into the underground Ballroom, you will find a pocket of icy winter, hidden from the thawing spring above. But in that frozen expanse, pulses of fire blaze and swirl, filling the air with warmth. Somehow, the ice and fire dance together in an elemental forge, cracking and crackling, never melting, never extinguished, an unending kaleidoscope of flame and frost.

Your ticket includes:

  • An extravagant three-course meal, including main, dessert and late-night supper.
  • Free wine, beer, cider and soft drink served to you all night.
  • Music, dancing, entertainment and an award ceremony.
  • Dedicated space for you and your group to have the energy captured by a professional photographer.
The Annual Graduate Ball, in its twentieth year running, is a time-honoured event that brings together all faculties of the graduate student community.

In 2019, we return to the unparalleled Plaza Ballroom, where we will celebrate and recognise the achievements of the student community with a prestigious awards ceremony.

It will be the most dazzling and spectacular evening of the student year.
