Get Your Hands On A Freshers' Festival Wristband

Freshers' Festival 2018 is nearly upon us, which means one thing: It's time to get your hands on a Freshers' Festival wristband!

We’ve been working extra hard behind the scenes this summer to make sure you guys have the best Freshers’ Festival yet, and this year's line-up definitely doesn't disappoint.

With acts such as drum & bass legend Andy C ft. Tonn Piper, Don Broco (DJ Set), EO and Philip George gracing the stage this year, this is not a week to miss! We understand that FOMO is real (fear of missing out) and Freshers’ Festival is an essential time that emphasises the importance of play. Having a wristband helps to make you worry-free as it guarantees entry to all the major late-night events throughout the week (not to mention you get to keep a snazzy souvenir when the week is over).

Wristbands are on sale to Freshers from Thursday 16 August, and returning students from 9am on Saturday 1 September.

What Wristband Options Do I Have?

You have the option of purchase two different types of wristbands: Silver (£50) and Gold (£65). Having a wristband will give you fast track entry to all of the events (excluding Freshers’ Ball if you have a silver wristband) and special benefits for a much cheaper price when compared to buying individual tickets separately.

As a Students’ Union, we want you to get full value for money. So we’re giving a £15 discount off the annual Gold Royal Holloway Sports membership, free access to all group exercise classes and free drop-in gym use during Freshers’ for all silver and gold wristband owners.

We’re not even done yet - having a wristband also entitles you to a one-off 50% discount to your food bill at the Packhorse or Tommy’s Kitchen and £5 off when you spend over £25 at the Union shop. You'll also bag 50% off a snazzy Royal Holloway hoody. Pretty great, right?

Individual event tickets will be on sale from Monday 17 September - events are expected to sell out so book early to avoid disappointment!
