Leeds Ball - The Thrill of the Wild

Leeds University Union


Leeds University Union is a charity supporting over 30,000 students. Our events and activities raise the income we need to provide frontline services.

Leeds Ball is the biggest fundraising event in our calendar, a chance for 5,500 students to mark the end of term or completion of their degree in style.

The funds generated at this event through tickets and spend on the night go directly into providing an amazing, unforgettable experience for the students and provide the Union with a small surplus, put towards student support services.

Last year, the ball underwent a radical change in strategy and marketing approach and the 2015 event built on this success and delivered the fastest selling ball in ten years, with the campaign concept: ‘The Thrill of the Wild’.

The ball, which takes over the University Campus, provides live music from international artists, fairground rides, street food, interactive games and acoustic sessions.
