Societies Ball 2018

Wed 21 November 2018 19:00-00:00

Hilton Grosvenor Hotel, Grosvenor Street, Haymarket

For the first time ever, Heriot-Watt University Student Union is hosting a charity ball to celebrate everything our amazing Societies do for our wee community and for those around us. We'll also be raising money for some really worthwhile causes, Social Bite and SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health). Don your fancy frocks and suavest suits and get along to the Hilton Grosvenor in Haymarket on Wednesday the 21st of November!

For just £35, you will be treated to:
• Welcome drinks on arrival (bubbly or a non-alcoholic alternative)
• A keynote speech from the founder of Social Bite, Alice Thompson
• A 3-course sit down meal with after-dinner hot drinks
• Two drinks with dinner (beer, red or white wine or soft drinks)
• Professional photography
• Hours of entertainment from an INCREDIBLE live band
• A charity raffle with some AMAZING prizes, with all profits from this going to Social Bite and SAMH
• An after-party at one of our sponsored George Street venues with exclusive VIP areas.

This is by far the best value-for-money formal of the year!

Want to bring a friend that’s not part of a society? No problem – the bigger the party the better!

Tickets on sale from the Union Reception from the 1st of September 2018, with pop-up stalls around campus throughout weeks 1-8 too! 

Please see below for FAQs. Please direct any other questions you have to Kieran Robson Renner, Vice President Community.

What is the refund policy?
Unfortunately we are unable to offer refunds, but you can sell the ticket to a friend and do a name change by either: filling in a new slip at the Union reception and writing NAME CHANGE at the top, or contacting Kieran Robson Renner or Aoife Clarke.

What if I lose my ticket?
Unfortunately we cannot replace your ticket at this point in time. We have your name and details logged and will have a check-in list on the door on the evening so just bring some ID with you! If we have spare tickets left after the event, and you'd like one as a keepsake, let us know on the evening.

I have dietary requirements, what should I do?
Just let us know your requirements on the form before you get your ticket. The venue are being super accommodating and are working hard to make sure everyone gets a delicious meal that is suitable for them!

The soup is vegan apart from the creme fraiche, and if you just write 'vegan option' in the box under main and dessert, the hotel are currently cooking up something delicious for you too!
