Grad Ball Acts Revealed

May 23, 2014 · Ollie Parsons

It has been revealed that Scouting For Girls will headline this years Great Gatsby themed Grad Ball.

Room 1 will be graced with four performances, including an act from British Eurovision 2014 contestant, Molly Smitten-Downes. She’ll be joined by the producers of number one single ‘Nobody To Love‘, Sigma. English duo Gorgon City will round off the acts for what is sure to be a brilliant and varied night of entertainment. These acts will be joined by ITV2 presenter, Caroline Flack who will be “taking over fusion this year”.

Zak Evans told The Epinal:

“We’re really excited with this years line up. We feel that the acts cover all areas and that there is something for everyone. Our entertainments and venue department have worked hard on finding the right acts to give everyone at the ball the right send off, or an incredible night. Tickets are available at“.

All funds raised as a result of the Grad Ball contribute to the charitable status of the Students’ Union.

    Better line up than a lot of years, so Zak and venue cannot be criticised for the actual night and activities. The price however is an issue when you consider Leeds University is £32, and the £50 offer includes 3 course sit down meal and wine. While LSU does have this option as well, it is called the Presidents dinner, and in previous years is offered free of charge along with entry to Grad Ball to all members of the board of trustees, Chair of Council, and the Executive for the year they are employed as well as the two years following, as well as select members of high level Union; and more oddly, University management staff. Having accepted this two years in a row, it is a little hypocritical to have written, but considering that the final line in the article highlighting it’s charitable status is there to allow the Union to avoid paying tax on the night due to it legally being considered a fundraising event, it is a shame that these savings aren’t transparently seen to be directly passed onto the consumer, namely the students; which are often far to easy to forget in these meetings.
    That being said, the decorations are always awesome, and it is always an awesome night, so if you can afford it, it is certainly worth going to.
