Freshers UK 2020

Freshers UK 2020

Ok so it might not be the Freshers you were expecting, but it's still Freshers and you really shouldn't be holed up in your room/dorm/cupboard under the stairs bingeing on Countryfile (not that there's anything wrong with Countryfile, but there's a time and a place - Sunday 6pm, BBC One - and this ain't it).

Anyway, there's plenty of events going on. Actual events too, with real people in physical spaces. Ok there aren’t tonnes of events this year, and they’re a bit harder to find, and there are a few more rules, and the music is quieter and so on… but it’s still Freshers and you’re going out (and at least it’s not April, because that really was crap!).

Here's the best events taking place up and down the UK during Freshers (note: they’re not all strictly Freshers events, but some of the best ones aren’t).

Looking for more events taking place in your city? You can search our events guide here and download the Skiddle App on Apple or Android.

Note: all listed events were due to go ahead at the time of publishing. As guidelines change, please check individual events for information about social distancing.
