Dinner ticket = £72pp
Ents ticket = £36pp
(Pricing is unchanged from 2018)

You pay an initial deposit of £36 but this is knocked off the overall booking. Once you have made the booking on fixr we will contact you to give details on how to pay the rest.

Note: We charge by the total number of spaces on the table. So, if you have 11 people and have booked a 12 table you will be required to pay for all 12.
Similarly, if someone drops out, you will still need to pay for the whole table.

Ents people you can chill. Once you have purchased online there are no further payments to be made.

The Cocktail Society ball is the pinicle of your University social career and it never fails to deliver year after year.

ENTs ticket is short for "Entertainment Only". Basically means you get Cock-Soc but without the dinner section of the evening.

ENTS customers can expect to receive entry after 9pm to the event (just as dinner finishes). They will also receive transport to the venue from Lenton and two free cocktails.

Tickets are released on Tuesday 26th February

There are no deadlines for ENTs. When you make your booking you will have paid in full.

The minimum table size is 5 persons. We have tables of:
  • 5 people
  • 6 people
  • 7 people
  • 8 people
  • 10 people
  • 12 people
  • 14 people
  • 16 people
Note: We charge by the total number of spaces on the table. So, if you have 11 people and have booked a 12 table you will be required to pay for all 12.
Similarly, if someone drops out, you will still need to pay for the whole table.

When you reserve your groups' table(s) initially we ask for a non-refundable £36 deposit for each table. This is to help prevent people block booking multiple tables they won't use. We are using a ticketing site to do this (fixr) so there is an additional booking fee charge of £1.40 for their services that doesn't count towards the table costs.

Once you have booked you can then transfer the remaining balances to us by online bank transfer (so no more extra fees :) )

An example:
Book a table of 10 works out as £72 x 10 people = £720 is the total cost. When you booked online you will have already paid £36 to reserve your table. You then pay the remainder of the table bill so £720 minus the £36 = £684. You can do this all at once, or split the payment 50% when you book and 50% before Friday 10th May. So, in our example, £684 / 2 = £342 each time.

The final balance (second 50%) will need to be cleared by Friday 10th May

Unfortunately, you will still be liable for the entire table. So if you book a 12 and someone drops out you will still be required to pay for the 12 or risk losing your whole table.

You can swap people around no problem. We will also endeavour to help swap tables where we can if say 2 people dropout and we need to make you a 10. But as a basic rule, assume you will be paying the whole amount.

We will be sending out menu options in May which include nearly all dieatary options. If the choices still don't work for you please get in touch directly by emailing us at info@carpenoctum.co.uk.

Gents: Black tie. Strictly formal attire. Bow tie or tie compulsorary.

Ladies: Formal dresses and ball gowns.

This year's theme is "Steam Punk" (worth a Google) if you want to accessorise! Dressing to the theme is entirely optional

Yes. The venue has disabled access. If you have any specific requirements please get in touch directly by emailing us at info@carpenoctum.co.uk

For those people who have paid the first 50% of their table the second installment is due on Friday 10th May.

Payment information is the same as your first transfer. You will need to use the same reference you used last time too. Reminder emails are being sent out that will have you reference number included.
