Since 2014 BBKSU has successfully held a Fresher’s Fayre at the beginning of the academic year as an opportunity to meet and welcome new and returning students. Thousands of students come to see what the Students' Union has to offer, making this an excellent opportunity for exhibitors to sell memberships and get people involved with their projects. Our clubs & societies are invited to exhibit for FREE as we always want to provide opportunities for our students’ self-organising efforts to flourish. We also welcome local and national businesses to join us as it's the perfect time for our members to consider new products and services to support their student experience (see the below for details).

Freshers' Fayre is on Saturday 30th of September 2017 from 12 - 5.30pm at Torrington Square, outside the entrance to the Malet Street campus building at Birkbeck, University of London. The area will be transformed into a buzzing market place hosting over 50 stalls, including our student groups, officer campaigns and our active clubs and societies, with a bar and activities to encourage networking. We're teaming up with Birkbeck's welcome day for new students, which will further increase the number of students attending this year!

Coming to university opens the door to a world of opportunity, there is no better time for students to discover a new interest (or develop an old one) than our Freshers' Fayre.

Over recent years we've hosted: Lucozade Energy, Transport for London, Santander, the AceCard, Bannatyne Health & Fitness, and Amazon to name but a few. The day is a great way for businesses to promote their services and products to thousands (estimated footfall of at least 3,000) of our students who come ready to hear your messages (and take your freebies!).
