We’re kicking off day one of Freshers’ Festival with a huge arrivals party for everyone. Expect to see a festival spanning from Medicine all the way to the Students’ Union. From inflatable games on top of Medicine Hill to a massive VK bus to a welcome BBQ at The Packhorse – you best be prepare yourself for the hustle and bustle!
PLEASE NOTE: Buying a ticket for this event allows you access to the Welcome Weekend events for both Saturday 16 September and Sunday 17 September.
* Included in the Gold and Silver Freshers' Festival Wristband
Tickets will guarantee you entry into the venue until 11pm, after this time entry will be dependent on venue capacity until midnight.
Online tickets may be transferred at the door, on the night of the event, between 10pm and 11pm. Transferals outside of this time need to be completed in person at the wristband exchange - tickets cannot be exchanged any other way. You cannot transfer a ticket and then come back to the event later unless you purchase an additional ticket. If transferring on the door, you will need to enter the SU once you have transferred your ticket.
The person whom you are transferring your ticket to must be present. Please remember that you are responsible for any guests you sign in even if you transfer your own ticket and do not attend.
Your College Card will automatically have your ticket added to it once payment is completed online. You simply need to turn up with your College Card and photographic proof of age ID (driving licence, passport, PASS card or government ID) or a signing in wristband and the person who signed you in if you are a guest.
If you feel more comfortable printing your ticket, that’s fine but it’s not needed (and is probably more environmentally friendly if you don’t!)
Guests need to be signed in at any of the following locations and times:
Union Helpdesk - Midday to 5pm
Tommy's Kitchen - 5pm to 8pm
Medicine - 6pm to 10pm
This can only be done on the night of the event. They cannot be signed in on the door of the SU.
If you want fast track entry on the night you can exchange your e-ticket for a wristband on the day of the event. These will take place in the following locations:
Please note that additional ticket holders need to be present when exchanging for a wristband and wristbands must be placed on your arm at the time of collection. We cannot refund any wristbands that are lost between collection and the event start so please look after your wristband.
