Ball tickets allocated in 4 hours

All 7500 tickets to this year’s Trintiy Ball were booked by 1pm today, after registration opened at 9am.

Registration is now closed, meaning that only those who have already requested tickets will be able to purchase them. All existing registrants will now be allocated tickets upon payment on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration does not guarantee a ticket until it has been paid for.

Queues this morning were among the longest seen for the Ball in years, wrapping around front square past the Public Theatre despite consistent rain. The allocation of tickets which could be paid for online via PayPal were quickly exhausted, leaving students with the options of attempting to contact the busy credit card hotline or joining the ranks queuing outside the Students’ Union Shop.

This year’s lineup includes Dizzee Rascal, Mr Hudson, Digitalism and Jape. You can find out more about the Ball and listen to the artists here.
