Throughout the year, the Athletic Union hosts two formal events; the Christmas Ball and the Presentation and Awards Ball. Both events are usually held in Keele Hall, one of Staffordshire's finest stately homes, which is situated on campus.
Both events are ticketed and tickets are only available to those with AU membership.
The Christmas Ball gives those attending the opportunity to get to know their team better and celebrate the start of the competitive season, as well as join in the festivities leading up to the end of semester 1.
The Presentation and Awards Ball is held in semester 2 and gives clubs the opportunity to celebrate their achievements and successes, both at a team and individual level. The evening's highlight is the Athletic Union Awards, where teams, clubs and individuals are recognised for their playing ability, success and involvement with the AU and their club throughout the year.
Nominations for the Athletic Union Awards are now closed and will re-open in semester 2.
