Wristbands Now On Sale

The Freshers’ Festival line-up looks pretty sweet right? Well, you’ll be delighted to know that our wristband packages are now on sale to all students!

First year students snapped up all of our gold wristbands during their exclusive sales period, but you can still get your hands on a silver (exactly the same benefits as gold minus the TOTUM card) or bronze wristband to ensure your Freshers’ Festival gets off to a thrilling start.

As well as saving you money versus purchasing individual tickets, which will be in very limited supply, this is also the only way to guarantee your entry to all of our headline events. You’ll also bag a number of extra perks!

Can I buy individual event tickets?

Yes, but as previously mentioned these will be in very limited supply. They will go on sale to all students on Friday 13 September but if you’re hoping to attend our headline events, purchasing a wristband is the only way to guarantee your entry.

Are there any other events that I can attend?

Absolutely! We have a wide range of events taking place in and it's not all about drinking and partying. We've got a host of daytime events including Union Fest, Colour Run, Disney Karaoke, Laser Tag, and even a trip to IKEA to name just a few.

Our evening offering has expanded this year too with a number of alcohol-free events taking place in Imagine. We'll be bringing you Live: Acoustic with performances from local acts, BASIC Bingo, a Craft Session, a Board and Video Games Night and even a Silent Disco.

The Packhorse has everything from A Night At The Circus to their weekly Big Fat Pub Quiz, with Rugby World Cup on TV and more food, drinks and live music you could dream of.

We'll also be launching our term one Give It A Go event programme in the next couple of weeks, where we'll have everything from craft activities, movie nights and go karting, to trips, animal experiences and hairstyling masterclasses.
