Costume competition

The Halloween Ball is a fancy dress party, this means that everyone needs to wear a costume and no costume party would be the same without a costume competition! Wear something scary, dress up as your favourite film character or make us laugh in something funny - the choice is yours!

How will I be judged?

On the night of the Ball, you will be asked to choose which student from your table has the best costume - who you think has gone to the most effort. Your chosen student will be asked to get up onto the dance floor along with nominees from the other tables and parade in front of our panel of VIP judges who will then select the winners. 

There will be fantastic prizes for the winner and runners-up!


The Halloween Ball will be held at the DoubleTree By Hilton Hotel Glasgow, which is located in the city centre and not the West End. Please make your own way to the Hilton Hotel.
