HOW WILL WRISTBAND COLlection work?

CAN I GO TO FRESHTIVAL IF I AM NOT A FIRST YEAR?

YES! Everyone can come to Freshtival. Although it is primarily aimed at those first starting Brighton University, it's a brilliant way to meet new people, see what Brighton Students' Union has to offer, and kickstart the new year with a bang!

This year we have divided our Freshtival programme up into 2 different weeks: REWIND, RELOAD & RELOAD EASTBOURNE.

We also have a Freshtival week for our Eastbourne students specifically, so everyone gets to join in! 

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.

 

Not only do we have 2 weeks full of jam-packed themed events, but we also have an alternative programme of daytime activities, virtual events and an explorer day with plenty of offers and deals for you to get your teeth into.

Do third party wristbands work to get into Brighton Freshers? 

NO. Third party wristbands do not allow you entry to any of our events. As a union we advise you to purchase BSU wristbands only and follow our main social pages for updates and information. 

 

Third party companies will always be selling wristbands around this time of year, and we have no affiliation to these companies.  

Top Tip: If you look out for the BSU logo as well as following any link on our socials you are sure to have the right tickets. 

What procedures do you have in place to ensure Freshers is Covid Safe? 

All of our events will only take place in line with the government guidelines. We are working closely with all parties involved to ensure the safest and most enjoyable experience for everyone. We will also be offering some virtual events for those of you that would still prefer to stay online.  

Your Safety 

 

  • Please only attend our events if you are showing NO symptoms of the following.  

  • The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are: 

  • 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
