Get ready for a HUGE week of events at the Lower Deck! Spanning across nine days and nights.

There are five big events as part of Freshers that you will need a wristband for. These can be purchased for just £16 and will also unlock additional special offers in our venues!

Garage icons Artful Dodger will take to the Lower Deck stage for a night of UK Garage, Hip Hop, Funky House and Drum 'n' Bass.

Freshers runs from Saturday 14 September – Sunday 22 September.

A Lower Deck Freshers’ wristband gets you into our five club events for free subject to capacity.

You also get:

10% off your food order at BOTH Lower Deck and Village shop

For those who courses prohibit them from wearing wristbands the Lower Deck team can issue you with a Freshers Week Pass instead of a wristband. You MUST request one on day of purchase and email the Lower Deck at to arrange collection.


The wristband is now sold out.
