All 800 Project D tickets sold out in an hour today after they went on sale at 6pm.
The rebranded ‘Big D’ event was promoted on campus today, partially through a Garden Party which happened earlier this term. The 300 presale tickets sold out by the end of the event.
Basshunter will be headlining the event, which will have stages all over Derwent including a Willow room in the Courtyard, featuring Willow DJs and drinks deals.
Andy Bostock, Derwent Ents Vice Chair, commented; “We are all very chuffed that the hard work paid off. Me Ben and Pat want to publicly thank everyone that has put in so much effort to get to this point! We are going to make sure the 1100 people who bought tickets will have the best night at University we have had so far. Any money which isn’t spent doing that will go to the RAG charities. It’s a fantastic idea to put Derwent college’s end of year event back where it belongs!”
Thomas Fennelly, a Derwent member commented; “I’m gutted that I couldn’t get tickets because the line-up looks right up my street! Instead I am going to go for a quiet drink in Osbaldwick.”
Ben Leatham, Derwent Chair commented: “I came out of an exam at 7.00 and found out we had nearly sold out! This such a testament to all the hard work Andy, Paddy and the rest of the committee have put in. Bring on June 9th!”
Summer Ball tickets are still on sale.
