Liverpool Freshers’ Week
Liverpool’s Freshers’ Weeks are the stuff of legend and things don’t seem set to change in 2016. There are already scores of events lined up during this year’s Freshers’ Week, with ska legends The Beat and rousing punk revivalists The Membranes both set to visit the city. There’s also the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia and the famous No Wave Social Club to look forward to, as well as a host of events being put together by students’ unions across the city as we speak. Freshers’ Week is a great time to get to know fellow students also new to the city and eager to start exploring what it has to offer right away. Though your first week at university can seem daunting, it can also be one of the most enjoyably memorable weeks of your life. Expect more student events to be added to the calendar as we edge closer to September.
