It's returning.

Get ready to party like never before! We're thrilled to welcome you to Summer Ball 2023, the ultimate festival experience for Royal Holloway students. With a range of huge performances and fun attractions, it’s the perfect way to sign off the academic year. From dancing under the stars to indulging in delicious food and drinks, our festival has something for everyone.

Buying a ticket.

This year, we have various phases where you can purchase your tickets and cash in on some amazing value-for-money incentives. Essentially, the earlier you purchase, the more perks you'll receive including some great exclusive extras.

Buy on launch day (Friday 28 April) and you'll bag a gold wristband giving you a welcome drink, early fairground ride access, a Survivors' Breakfast roll, and five Lucky Dip entries where you could win back the price of your ticket. Check under each phase to see which perks are included!

28 April.

Phase 1.

This is when all our discounted tickets are released, including Early Bird for just £45 (available for students only). Make sure you grab them quickly before they sell out! You will have the option to add on up to three guests for £75 per ticket.

Buying on launch day is the only way to bag the full festival experience including the Survivors' Breakfast and early access to fairground rides, in addition to a welcome drink and the highest chance of winning your money back through our Lucky Dip.

Keep an eye out because we will also be announcing our entertainment zones and some exclusive festival content.

5 May.

Phase 2.

Missed out on tickets from our initial launch? Don’t worry, we’ll be dropping another 1000 General Sale tickets for you to pop straight in your basket!

We’ll also be announcing what you can expect from our Square Stage, including your favourite SU resident DJs and familiar themes from our Union Venue and Medicine club nights!

12 - 18 May.

Phase 3.

Any unsold tickets from Phase two will roll over and some extra General Sale tickets will be made available. This is your last chance to guarantee a ticket to Summer Ball. If they sell out now, that’s them all gone!

It’s also time to find out your Festival Stage line-up (sorry, you’ll have to wait a little bit longer to find out your headline acts).

19 May - 2 June.

Phase 4.

We’ve kept you waiting long enough. We’ll finally be announcing your headline artists for the Festival Stage – you won’t want to miss this one!

Had a busy term and not got round to purchasing your ticket, or a last-minute change of heart and realised you couldn’t possibly miss out on Summer Ball with your mates? We get it. If we haven’t already sold out, this really will be your final chance to bag a ticket! Tickets will be £5 more expensive (£80) if you wait until this date, so we’d encourage you to buy them earlier if you can!

With just two weeks to go until the big day, we’ll be confirming the full event schedule with set times and stages, in addition to all of the experiential activity including fairground rides and food vendors.

2 June.

Summer Ball.

It's finally here. Get ready for a night of non-stop fun, dancing, and excitement as you dive into the ultimate festival experience featuring big performances, thrilling attractions, delicious food, drinks, and more. See you there!
