Loughborough Students’ Union has just announced the 2021 Freshers lineup featuring the Freshers’ Bazaar as well as the return of the ever so popular Indie Club.
The 2021 Freshers lineup is jam-packed full of different events and is for those who also were not able to take part in the usual Fresher celebrations last year.
The celebrations begin on the 25th September with a ‘Welcome Party’ for Butler Court, Claudia Parsons and Telford. This is followed by another four parties for the remaining halls, with the last one being on Wednesday 29th September.
After the hall welcoming parties, there is a chance to get involved in mini golf, get stuck into some traditional fun-fair activities as well as the always fun petting zoo!
This year the Freshers’ Bazaar will also be held in person in the Sir David Wallace Sports Hall. This is a chance for all the Freshers to see what sports, societies and committees they would like to get involved with!
As mentioned, ‘The Indie Club’ is back with an amazing line-up of guests! There will be members of The Vaccines, Bastille and Circa Waves all spinning their favourite indie and alternative tunes throughout their very own DJ sets.
Returners also have a very special event on Friday 8th October with drum and bass DJs Rudimental at The Basement.
The Freshers Ball is also taking place on Saturday 9th October at the SU. The line-up of those performing will be released on Tuesday 21st September!
