We anticipate a level of demand for places at the Dominique Strauss-Kahn speaker event on Friday 9th March which will exceed the available capacity of the Union building.
To ensure that all members have an equal chance of getting in, to minimize queueing times and to avoid having to turn members away, we will be issuing tickets to members through a randomized online ballot.
Members wishing to attend must login with their member account and submit an online application for a ticket between 8pm on Monday 5th March and 12am on Wednesday 7th March. The application page is here, and is available only to authenticated Union members.
When applications close, randomly selected applicants will be assigned tickets. If your application is selected for a ticket, we will send you an email on Thursday 8th March notifying you that you have a reserved place either in the debating chamber or in one of our overflow rooms.
Please note that only users with an active Union membership associated with their account will be able to enter the ballot, so make sure you login with the correct details. Your username is either the username you chose when you joined the society, or the email address where we send weekly emails.
Each member is entitled to apply for a single ticket. Only members with tickets will be allowed entry. Membership cards will be required in addition to the ticket on entry.

For the first time ever, join us to see the Union's chamber transformed into a beautiful dining room with a sensational three course meal from the Cambridge Dining Company.

For the non-diners, food will remain exquisite and drink will be plentiful as the Union brings in 3 extra bars to minimise any queuing time! There'll be classic ball favourites such as a Casino room, jazz music and a silent disco, but the Union Spring Ball will also be offering you a boudoir room, with massages and pampering available, plenty of space to chill and chat in our luxurious 'Tea, Coffee and Cake' room, as well as an exciting headline act, soon to be announced.
With ALL drink and ALL food included in the price, there simply is no better way to beat the winter and Cambridge blues than by dressing up, donning a mysterious mask, and spending an evening of shameless indulgence and decadence;
