Tickets will be released to Homerton students and Homerton staff, alumni and fellows only on the 28th Jan 2019. This release will be exclusive to Homerton students, staff and alumni. The Committee doesn’t expect to release any tickets on general sale to the rest of the University, but Homerton students may bring up to 3 guests, who can either be students at other colleges or non-University members. A portion of tickets will be reserved for Homerton alumni, staff and fellows. After a 72 hour window, any remaining tickets will be released to Homerton students.
Tickets will go on sale directly from our own website - NOT through UPAY or any other college-operated ticketing system! A link will appear on the website when they are released at 8pm, which you can then follow to the ticket application form.
You will receive an email alerting you that you have been allocated tickets. Read this carefully - it contains detailed instructions on how to make payment! You must make full payment within 7 days, or your ticket(s) will be reallocated.
You should only pay the amount detailed on your allocation confirmation email. Do not pay for any additional tickets that you have not been allocated; we will not allocate you additional tickets in these circumstances, and you may not be refunded.
Other Homerton students may add you to their application as a guest, at which point they will be responsible for the payment and collection of your ticket. However, we strongly recommend you make arrangements to buy your own ticket in order to avoid missing out, as tickets sell out extremely quickly!
Once you have been allocated your ticket(s), the type(s) cannot be altered. To change your ticket type, you would need to cancel your application and create a new one.
Once your ticket(s) have been paid for in full, you can apply for a name change to either your own ticket or that of one of your guests, to transfer it to a new guest. Each name change incurs an admin fee. If you transfer your own ticket as the main applicant, you also transfer responsibility of any guest tickets in your application. The main applicant must make all applications for name changes on behalf of their guest(s). The admin fees are the following.
Tickets for Homerton College alumni will go on sale at 8pm on Monday 28th Jan 2019 at the same time as current student sales. To access our ticketing system at this time, please use the link in the email you received. Alumni, like current students, will be able to buy up to four Standard (£130), Queue Jump (£145) or VIP tickets (£160) each. A portion of tickets will be reserved for a 72-hour period, after which time they will be released to Homerton students. Please note alumni of other colleges will not be able to purchase tickets to Homerton May Ball.
Homerton staff and fellows will be able to buy tickets directly from the website at 8pm on Monday 28th Jan 2019. The same ticket prices as for alumni (see above) apply.
If you are a current Homerton student on the full Cambridge Bursary, you are eligible to purchase a Standard ticket at a discounted rate of £100. To apply for a Bursary ticket, please select a Standard ticket as usual when applying through our ticket system, and then get in touch with our Ticketing Officers ((firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to payment to apply the discount. For your privacy, the Committee will not be storing any information on individuals and the Bursary ticket class will not be printed on your ticket or wristband.
If tickets have already sold out by the time you make your application, you will be added to the waiting list and alerted by email. If enough tickets become available to satisfy your application (on a first come, first served basis) then you will be allocated tickets and alerted, and given 7 days to pay for them.
Each ticket applicant may buy 3 guest tickets in addition to their own - these tickets can be for anyone you like, provided they are over 18. You will be responsible for payment and collection of all of your guest tickets. All of your guests will need to bring their own photographic ID to gain entry on the night.
Once you have successfully applied for your ticket, please email our Ticketing Officers (email@example.com) and make them aware of any adjustments you may need to make the Ball an enjoyable experience.
The caterers and menus have been selected with a wide range of dietary requirements in mind and we hope that there will be something for everyone! However, if you have a particularly unusual allergy, intolerance or requirement, please email our Food and Drink Officers (firstname.lastname@example.org) once you have successfully applied for your ticket to let them know, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
The dress code for the May Ball is Black Tie. Guests should wear either a dinner suit with a bow tie, military or national dress, a cocktail or evening dress. Please be aware that the Committee reserves the right to turn away any guests they deem not dressed appropriately for the event. A cloakroom will be provided on the night. Please check the weather forecast and wear appropriate footwear.
