Grad Ball 2019

In What's on

Reading Time: 2 minutes

You chose a Gatsby-themed ball and so, on Saturday, we were transported back to the 1920s for our special night celebrating the class of 2019 in style.

The entire Union was transformed for the sell-out event, with a casino, silent disco under the stars, and every prop and photo opportunity you could dream of, complete with vintage cars giving the perfect background for all your snaps.

The Cube was packed from beginning to end with Sub Focus, Adrian Murphy, Nathan Dawe and 1991 keeping the party going until the early hours of the morning.


Delicious food was served throughout the night with beautifully decorated cakes and doughnuts available, an ice cream cart, and Gourmet burgers and fries served in The Cafe.

Itchy Feet kept everyone dancing in The Bridge with the Gatsby girls teaching us all the moves.

Here’s what you had to say about the night:

“I had an amazing time. Really big thanks to the organisers it exceeded my expectations! Thank you!”

“Thank you so much for putting on a brilliant evening. I was so impressed by the design of the Union, the money was definitely spent well for this!”

“Really good job done! It was a fantastic night and it’s so lovely to bump into everyone you’ve met over your time at uni. For £25 this is a ridiculously cheap night compared to other universities and was really well pulled off. Thank you to everyone in the team that made it happen”

“The theme was absolutely beautiful, it didn’t even look like the normal SUSU building, and it was nice just spending time with my friends”
