Freshers’ Ball: 3 Days to go

In General

Reading Time: 3 minutes

There’s only three days to go until Freshers’ Ball 2016. This event usually sells out, so hurry and get your tickets now!

Tickets are just £28 or FREE with our Master Pass, but what do you get included? All of this…

Chart topping DJ dance duo Sigma, singing sensation Becky Hill and multi-instrumentalist MC Majestic are headlining this year’s Freshers’ Ball!


One of the highlights of the Freshers’ calendar, our Freshers’ Ball on Saturday 08 October, rounds off an incredible Freshers’ fortnight of events. You will have made friends with your new housemates, settled into your accommodation and be raring for a cracking year. Our Freshers’ Ball provides you with the perfect opportunity to get dressed to impress and grab your best ones for one final blow-out to kickstart term.Freshers’ is about offering something for everyone, so if music isn’t your thing, you can still enjoy all this:


Gather your housemates and join us to sing your hearts out at Massaoke. Just like the classic Japanese singing tradition, we will be singing along to some classics, but this time – everyone is involved. Just think – if you’re great you can carry the tune and if you’re rendition of Robbie William’s Angels is truly terrible, you can blend in with the crowd.
 Craft Beer Garden

Head to the Marquees opposite Building 40 for some good old real ale and beer. Kick back with your friends and enjoy a pint or two before the headliners hit the stage.
The Gin Garden

Gin tasters – this one’s for you. They say when life gives you lemons, make a G&T, but with our friuendly bar staff on hand, you can sit back and relax as we do it for you.
Prosecco Palace

Perfectly posh but at none of the cost! Sip on prosecco and be treated like royalty at our Prosecco Palace bar in the Marquees by Building 40.
Burlesque & Cabaret

Indulge in the decadence of a retro burlesque and cabaret performance courtesy of our friends, the Hundred Watt Club. They’ll be performing every half an hour in The Bridge from 22:00-01:30, so don’t miss out!



★ Shisha

Take some time out to talk with your friends in our shisha garden. Smokinnn’
★ Silent Disco

Innocently wreckless, you can party like never before and not make a sound

★ Funfair & Side stalls

Based on the Redbrick area and at the front of the Union, we don’t do it by halves, we’ve got a funfair to put you in a spin.

★ Photobooth 

Decorate your new pad with pics of you and your friends in the ultimate souvenir (silly hats and ‘taches anyone?!)

Here’s what you can expect, based on last year’s bash:
