About the festival

These three weeks will be key to meeting your fellow students, signing up for new exciting societies, and discovering London. We’ll ensure you start on the right foot with our 'Welcome Assembly' as well as making sure you’re well-prepared for any situation with our 'Self-Defence Workshop.'

Who's welcome?

Foundation students, undergraduates, and postgrads are all welcome to come to the events, however, wristbands are aged 18+ only. We will also be hosting a selection of free events for you to attend, so keep an eye out.

About the line-up

We know you're excited to get out and about, which is why we've curated a line-up that blends club nights, restaurants, games, and activities to provide a diverse and unique experience for everyone. Watch this space for when we release our event line-up.

About the gold wristbands

The gold wristbands provide premium access to all the events. This includes special perks such as goodie bags, queue jumps, and free drinks. Gold wristbands provide an all-access pass to all of our virtual events. Attend them while you're getting ready or tired after a long day.


  • Early Bird: £55
  • Second release: £65
  • Full price: £75

About the silver wristbands

The silver wristbands provide standard access to a wide selection of our events. The total of these events would be £88 RRP, however, the SU team has trimmed down the price to £11-£16 a week. This gives you the flexibility to purchase additional individual tickets to the premium events selection, so there's no pressure to attend anything you don't want to. This pass does not provide access to our virtual events. 

Please note: All second years have the opportunity to unlock a special surprise if they purchase the Silver Wristband.


  • Early bird: £35
  • Second release: £40
  • Full price: £50

Additional passes (coming soon)

Weekly 1/2/3 pass: £25 (provides gold level access for one week's worth of events)

Online pass: £15 – provides access to two weeks' worth of events and over 20 online events.
