Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQs

What ID do I need for Vodbull @ Rosies events?
Due to the massive demand, priority is given to local Universities (Aston / Birmingham / UCB / BCU / Newman only). Admission is for local UNIVERSITY cards only (not college or NUS cards) and their bona fide STUDENT guests.

Vodbull has a 'One for One policy'. Every local uni student (UoB, BCU, Aston, UCB, Newman) can bring ONE non local UNI STUDENT, without needing to book them in with us. EVERYONE MUST BE A STUDENT

EVERYONE at ALL our events require proof of age ID (passport or driving licence)- photocopies NOT accepted. (over 18s only)

The 'Out of town list' is no longer in operation. Online tickets holders are bound by the same admission policy

Please note: entry is NOT guaranteed and we reserve the right to refuse entry.

The above ID policy supersedes any ticket purchase made by the customer (paper/online or door) and the company reserve the right to refuse access if the ID policy has not been met. No refunds will be given in this case.

Tickets are only valid until the time stated on the ticket, after which time a surcharge will be payable or the ticket may no longer be accepted. Guestlist places are only guaranteed until 12am (late entry tickets not included).

N.B. You must be in a fit state to enter the venue. In cases where entry conditions are not met (including but not limited to; incorrect student or proof of age ID, being too intoxicated or wearing unacceptable clothing) tickets are non refundable. Neither are tickets refunded if you do not attend and they are non transferable. We reserve the right to refuse entry, without reason.

I have an online ticket. What happens?
You do not actually get a physical ticket - one less thing to lose!

Simply queue as normal at the online ticket queue and have your ID AND FOUR DIGIT CODE ready to be confirmed.

If you have purchased multiple tickets you as lead name will need to arrive first and with ALL THE PEOPLE ON YOUR TICKET!

Please have your proof of purchase email ready on your phone, showing your four digit code from Vodbull.com or Bar code from Fatsoma.com.

If you make an online booking through vodbull.com and do not receive a confirmation then please email info@vodbull.com
Can I buy tickets at the door?
Yes - at MOST events, capacity permitting, we will have 100 tickets on the door. Please call 07920 40 41 42 for specific information.

PLEASE NOTE: once you have purchased your ticket on the door, you are NOT permitted to leave and then re-enter at a later time.

However if advance tickets are sold out these places will go quickly so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
When are the tickets valid until?
Typically advance tickets are valid until 12am unless otherwise stated on the tickets or on the internet booking form.

All tickets for all Birmingham events are subject to a £1 surcharge payable on the door after 12am so please make sure that you allow sufficient time for transport and queuing so you are in the venue prior to the 12am cut off time.

Tickets for “Cocktail” at the Jam House are valid before 11pm.
Sales policy and ticket touting
Vodbull UK has an extensive ticket selling network and all sellers within that network should be selling event tickets for the same price and under the same terms and conditions.

Regular tickets for all Vodbull run events in Birmingham are £5.00 in advance during term time with the exception of events in the first, last and gala event weeks of term where prices may be higher.

IF YOU ARE BEING CHARGED MORE THAN THIS THEN IT IS LIKELY THAT YOU ARE BEING RIPPED OFF!!

Vodbull UK takes this matter very seriously. Ticket touting is illegal and is detrimental to you the customer and to our ability to run the successful events that we do. If you think you have paid over the odds for a ticket for one of our events then please report it to us on 07920 40 41 42.

All ticket sales are final and any refund offered will be at management discretion.
Full Outlet List
The following is a complete list of Authorised Vodbull UK Ticket outlets, correct to 12/04/14.

Selected other parties (University Halls, Societies and Sports Teams) may also be selling tickets for specific events that they have booked into.

If you are offered a ticket by someone who is not on this list, they are not an authorised Vodbull UK seller and we would strongly advise that you do not purchase from them. They may be touting tickets at inflated prices or the tickets may be fake. If you are in any doubt please contact us on 07920 40 41 42 to confirm whether they are genuine.

Stupid Tuesday @ Players – 10pm-1:30am

Stupid Wednesday @ Players – 10pm-1:30am

Tom's Mum on Tour – 11pm-1.30am

Cocktail @ The Jamhouse – 9pm-12am

All Other Events - 10pm-1am
Why is there a queue at Vodbull?
As I am sure you are aware, Vodbull is a very popular event with a strong client base. The need to check each ID on entry to improve safety and security inside the venue may regretfully lead to a slight delay on entry and thus increases the queues.

To help relieve this situation we would strongly suggest getting to the venue just a little earlier than you may usually. Please also allow time for transport as taxis are often in demand at this time of night. For your comfort, enjoyment and minimal Q times, we would advise arriving by 11.15pm.
Can I finish my drink from home in the queue?
NO!!

As you may also be aware, changes in Drink Licensing legislation in Birmingham came into effect at the start of April 2010 aimed at addressing the growing issues of binge drinking and anti-social behaviour and they will have an impact on the way in which many student nights operate.

An increasing trend towards pre-drinking and drinking whilst in transit to the venue has been noted and we understand there may be temptation for this.

However, we would remind you that many of the venues at which we operate are located within the City Centre alcohol exclusion zone, which means it is illegal to drink on the street in the area surrounding the venue. This of course includes any time spent queuing for entry to the venue. To reinforce this message, any bottles will be removed from people drinking outside and people attempting to drink in the queue regretfully may not gain entry to the event. Dependant on an individual’s behaviour, they may also be liable for prosecution if observed by a Police Officer.

Similarly, please ensure that you drink in moderation prior to arriving at the venue. Any person who appears visibly intoxicated will be refused access as per licensing law, for your own safety and that of others in the venue. Being outside a venue while everyone else is inside enjoying their night is not the recipe for a good night out!

Finally, please consider the points available at www.drinkaware.co.uk to ensure a safe and enjoyable night out for all, every time!
What is the dress code at the events?
The dress code for the majority of events is casual / relaxed, however caps and tracksuits are not allowed unless for fancy dress purposes. Of course religious headwear is permitted. Fancy dress is thoroughly encouraged - there may be prizes for extra effort depending on the theme!

The exceptions to this policy are Cocktail @ the Jam House where a strict dress code is in force:

No trainers or ripped/faded denim.

Shirt/Suit/Trousers/Cocktail Dress is strongly encouraged.

Fancy dress is not permitted at this event.
