How does Freshtival work this year?
Why should I get involved?
Freshers is one of the most memorable experiences you will have as a student. This year we have something for everyone whether you are into clubbing or activities, we have you covered.
Will I need a Covid passport?
we can confirm that, in line with government legislation, Covid passports will not be required to attend any of our events.
Who can come to Freshtival?
Do 3rd party wristbands work to get into Brighton Freshtival?
What procedures do you have in place to ensure Freshtival is Covid Safe?
a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you have noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
I am self-isolating/ in quarantine will I still be able to take part?
If you happen to find yourself having to isolate or in quarantine during our freshers weeks fear not. We will still have some virtual activities for you to get involved with.
What happens if we are in another national lockdown?
In the event of another lockdown all events will be postponed until the next possible dates, and you will have a choice between rolling your ticket over or receiving a full refund. This will simply be a click of a button away.
What happens if I catch Covid?
We have decided as a union to protect all Freshtival and other event tickets this year through a provider called Ticket plan. Just make sure you click the box to add it to your ticket. You may have realised that ticket prices are cheaper than previous years this is so that we can absorb that cost for you!
Will we have to have Covid Passports?
We will be following the Government guidelines very closely on this, come September. As will all the clubs and partners.
Will I get a refund if I have a positive covid test?
Yes. This falls under your insurance with Ticket plan. When you purchase your ticket make sure you read all of the T’s&C’s and tick the box to add the insurance to your ticket. Remember, you are not paying any extra as we have deducted it from our previous prices as we wanted to make sure this was covered for you.
I am self-isolating will I still be able to take part?
We will have various online and virtual events for you to get your teeth into, so have no fear. We also have lots of events all the way up until Halloween so you will absolutely be able to attend events after your isolation period ends.
