Secret Policeman’s Ball 2014 Update

February 3, 2014 in main by Debbie White

It’s now February, which means Christmas is well and truly behind us, we’ve given up on all hopes of snow and essay deadlines are approaching. But amongst all this gloom and doom, there’s something very exciting just around the corner! On the 22nd February, the Secret Policeman’s Ball is returning to Glasgow University!

We’re all working really hard to make it the best one ever but I wanted to write a wee update about what’s going on to let you all know what’s happening and why you should buy tickets to this year’s event! We’ve also got some exciting news about things we’re doing differently this year.

So, first, the line up! There’s still a few more acts to be confirmed so keep an eye on the for more announcements. So far we have:

Billy Kirkwood (Host)
Chris Conroy
The Geek Comedy Night
Rosco McSkelington
Eleanor Morton
Chris Dinwoodie (Magician)
Stu Who
Ryan Dooley

I’m particularly excited for the magician!

Like last year, we’ve got an afterparty hosted by which should be amazing!

We’ve got lots of raffle prizes for you! Confirmed ones so far have been donated by , , , Il Cappuccino and Amnesty UK. There’s more to come so keep your eyes open! Excitingly, this year we’re offering the opportunity to buy raffle tickets in advance, so if you can’t come along on the 22nd February but still want to support us, you can buy raffle tickets at one of our meetings, at our bake sale or e-mail me (Debbie) on

Another new venture for 2014 is the competition we’re running! Details are but it involves taking one of our flyers and getting a photo in the most exciting, strangest place you can! Entry is free and there’ll be a prize for the best one – just make sure you share the photo on social networks and email it to The competition is open to everyone – you don’t have to be a student at Glasgow University to enter.

I think that’s all – except a reminder that tickets are on sale! If you get them in advance from our then they’re £5/7 (higher price includes entry to the afterparty!) and on the door it’ll be £6/8.

If you want to help hand out flyers, set up Qudos on the day or have any general queries, then please do get in touch! See you on the 22nd February!
