Glasgow University's freshers' fair promises free food, drink, dance and more
As the new term dawns this freshers' fair ‘with a twist’ promises entertainment for students Glasgow-wide.
Far be it for us to perpetuate the broke student stereotype, but who says no to free food and drinks? There’ll be Keglevich vodka shots and Rekorderlig cider doing the rounds, plus Chicken Cottage and Crolla’s ice-cream. You know, all the healthy stuff.
There’s a bit of a Hollywood vibe going on, so, as well as being able to check out Autumn/Winter fashion shows from the likes of Warehouse, River Island and American Apparel, you can also visit the Glam Room to get made over by a selection of the city’s hairdressers and beauticians. Just in time for the evening’s shenanigans.
Speaking of evening shenanigans, get psyched for another big night out by paying a visit to the dancefloor where there’ll be DJs spinning tracks all day, plus Dance HQ are on hand to get your feet moving and your weekend routine down pat.
Freshers week is all about meeting new people, and what better way to meet new people than by battling it out in inflatable sumo suits? If you’re more traditional, there are also acts all day on the Barra’s world-famous stage, so plenty of chance to bond over music taste.
Before it all goes a bit radge, don’t forget to check out the stalls and exhibition stands. Glasgow’s diversity will be on display and this is your chance to learn more about the clubs, pubs and restaurants you’ll be frequenting over the next four years.
FRESH 14, Barrowland, Glasgow, Fri 19 Sep, 10am–4pm.
