Five Reasons to go to FRESH 14

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.

Drink up

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.

Doll up

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.

Hype up

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.

Meet up

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.

Bone up

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.


A freshers fair with a difference – as well as info and all that important stuff, there's also free alcohol, DJs, the chance to get all glammed up, competitions and a whole bunch of fun.
