Oh what a night! Grad Ball 2018
The Union was transformed into ‘a night under the stars’ for Grad Ball 2018, complete with a glowing moon to greet you, along with our famous Grad Ball letters for that perfect photo opportunity! Speaking of photo ops, did you explore the Airstream photo booth, complete with lots of vintage, wacky props? Or maybe you preferred to be out of this world, perched for a photo on the Moon Booth?
Mistajam, Charlie Sloth, Drop Division and DJ Ajay brought big tunes to The Stag’s, and if you headed down our balloon staircase to The Cube you will have found Retrojam kept the party going all night. The Bridge was our most glamorous Ball location, with champagne fountain, chandeliers, mirrored dance floor and Itchy Feet performing fantastic retro live music. If you were a lucky gold or silver wristband holder, you had access to our VIP Lounge to chill out with other Very Important People.
For many, the highlight of the night was singing along to The Greatest Showman at our outdoor cinema! A chance to put your feet up at a deckchair and enjoy some cinema snacks – we tried the cheesy chips and they were delicious, 10/10! The Redbrick was packed with plenty of students enjoying the outdoor silent disco, dancing around our beautiful blossom tree and twinkly fairy lights.
We hope everyone had a fantastic night at Grad Ball 2018, it was wonderful to see so many of you having a great time! Official photos and a video of the night will be on our Facebook page very soon.
