Graduation Ball Venue Nottingham

The location


A Grade II* listed building, Colwick Hall is a beautifully refurbished historic home that was once the residence of Lord Byron. Today it is a stunning location for all kinds of events, set in 60-acres of stretching, landscaped land that provides the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable experience. Your guests will love the photo opportunities at every turn, making every snap totally Insta-worthy for sharing with their followers.


The events team you can trust


One of the biggest success factors for any graduation ball is the expertise of the events team at the venue you choose – and our dedicated team of events professionals are completely committed to providing the perfect event. We have years of experience as a leading graduation ball venue Nottingham-wide and our university and college ball customers come from all across the county and from beyond in order to benefit from the location, service and professionalism of our service – all at affordable prices! Whether your graduation ball will be a large and lavish affair or a slightly smaller and more low-key celebration, we can provide a huge array of ideas and examples from other graduation balls to inspire you and help with your planning.

Competitive packages to suit all budgets

We design bespoke graduation ball packages that are entirely built around the needs of our clients. Perhaps you want a full ball in our lakeside pavilion, or maybe a summer marquee on the lawn. Maybe you have specific wishes for the type of music, lighting, catering and entertainment – or you are looking for ideas to fit your budget. In all instances, we can assist, with highly competitive packages that meet your every need – from the moment that your guests are welcomed with a glass of fizz on the balcony or lawns, to stunning themed decor, mouth-watering food and unforgettable music as the event bursts into life! Even better, we can offer drinks at prices reminiscent of the student bar!

Early access on the day


Your ball committee will be very welcome to arrive early on the day to start making preparations and to decorate the space as you wish. Our team will be on hand to provide help and advice as needed, and we will also be present at your ball to make sure everything runs smoothly, from our DJ and AV lighting specialists, through to our catering staff and ‘meet and greet’ helpers on the night! Bring out your finest gowns and tuxedos, organise your transport of choice and prepare for a night packed with fun, laughter, great food, drink and dancing – plus memories to last a lifetime with all of your student friends and faculty!
