SU wrap up academic year with Summer Ball

The DCU Students’ Union Summer Ball, expected to be the last in the current incarnation of The Hub, will take place on Thursday April 21st.

The Summer Ball is the final ball hosted by the DCU Students’ Union in the academic year.

Tickets cost €15 and are on sale from Tuesday April 12th from the Students’ Union helpdesk on Glasnevin campus. Students are allowed to purchase one ticket for themselves and one for another student, if they have their student card.

Acts booked to perform at the Ball include several DJs with 3 stages themed for the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s playing hits from each era. Individual acts are yet to be announced by the Students’ Union.

There will also be a silent disco, as well as face painting set up in The Hub. Thousands of students are expected to attend, as the event is the largest in the Students’ Union timetable.

Last year Swedish DJ Basshunter performed at the Summer Ball. In 2014 The Raglans, The Academic, Rory Lynam and DJ Rankin performed.

The event will be one of the last to take place in the Hub, due to a planned Student Centre that will cost €14 million. The new Student Centre will hold multi-function rooms and office space for students, clubs and societies and a print and broadcast media room.

Speaking to The Irish Times, President of DCU Professor Brian MacCraith said “we believe that our students should have access to a venue and supports which fully reflect our ambitions for them.”
