Multi Use Cup For Ball

Multi-use cup for Ball


The college is committed to working collectively for a sustainable future. The GTC Ball committee, acknowledges the sustainability effort of the college and therefore, asks attendees to take responsible actions and choices to reduce college’s environmental footprint.

  • Reusable cups: To reduce single-plastic usage, GTC will be providing reusable cups at the entrance to the ball. Attendees are encouraged to use these reusable cups for anywhere that serves alcohol and water. Our service providers have been briefed that attendees will have these cups to pour beer and wine into.
  • Three hydration stations with water will be placed on site to (1) encourage healthy hydration and (b) act as rinse stations for your cups if you would like to rinse out the any beer and wine before filling it again. Maps of these specific locations will be shared at the ball. We thank you for your partnership and efforts to take these simple steps that will make an outsized impact on our waste efforts!
  • Please pay attention to the labelled bins for each type of waste: Putting the right rubbish in the right bin will help us to recycle properly!
  • No external food and drinks are allowed.

Safety information

  • COVID-19 information: The college has now removed all remaining restrictions, but in light of the continued risk of COVID transmission asks that everyone acts responsibly and considerately: don’t come if you might be infectious, respect other people’s space and respect those who choose to wear a face-covering.
  • Drug and legal high policy: The Ball has a zero-tolerance drug and legal high policy. Attendees may be searched upon entry and may be refused entry if drugs are found. Any attendee who fails to comply with the drug-policy entry requirements will not be admitted to the Ball, and their ticket will not be refunded.
  • Smoking: There will be a designated smoking area during the ball. Smoking will not be allowed outside this designated area (which will be marked on our welcome map).

Throughout history and across cultures, people have ventured into Otherworlds through various means and for a variety of purposes. Will you be one of them? Will you expand and redefine your world? Join us for a night of live music, entertainment, food, drink, connection, and much more. We’ll be waiting for you in the Otherworld.
