Can guests come to the Boat Party?

Guests are permitted. You can buy your guest’s ticket when you buy your own. If you buy a ticket for another student, they’ll need to give their name and regnum when they come to pick up their wristband.

How do I pick up my wristband?

You can pick up your Boat Party wristband between 10am and 4pm from the front desk of the Officer Team's office. That's the office you'll see if you turn right when entering the 1st floor of the Students' Union Building. If you can't make it along before that, you'll need to come to Tower Pier earlier on the day of the Boat Party (26th) - we'll be giving out wristbands between 10am and 11am. The Boat leaves at 11.15am, so you'll need to make sure you're there by 10.30am to pick up your wristband on time - otherwise you'll risk missing the Boat.

I'm bringing a guest - can I pick up their wristband?

Guests can only pick up their wristbands in the presence of the person who bought their ticket - no loose wristbands will be given out. Guests will need valid ID so that we can take down their names (and they'll need it to get into the event). If your guest is another student, they’ll need to bring their student ID with them when they come with you to collect it.

I can’t attend, but have bought a ticket. Can I get a refund?

You won’t be able to get a refund but you can sell your ticket on. Just send the name and regnum of the person you've sold it to to smsu@stmarys.ac.uk so that we can match it up with their student regnum – they won’t be able to exchange their ticket for a wristband if you don’t do this.

How do I get to the boat?

You will need to make your own way to Tower Pier where the boat embarks from on the day - the postcode is EC3N 4DT. We recommend downloading the app CityMapper to find the fastest journey on the day, and we’ll be advising on any travel issues from our social media accounts. You will need to arrive between 10:30 and 11am as the boat will leave at 11.15am sharp – the boat won’t wait for you if you’re late.

What is the dress code for boat party?

The dress code is relaxed. If the weather is nice we advise bringing your sunglasses (and some sun tan lotion)!

Will there be food available?

There will be no food available on the Boat - please make arrangements before/after to make sure that you're not hungry while on board.

Can I bring my own alcoholic drinks?

You won’t be able to take any alcohol onto the boat. Bag checks will be in operation.
