Unofficial event tickets
At present the Guild of Students are not selling official Welcome or Freshers Fest event tickets. However, we have seen a lot of unofficial ‘University of Birmingham’ Freshers events being advertised to students. These events are not affiliated with the Guild and we have no way of ensuring the necessary safety precautions are being taken at these events, so please do not purchase these tickets. Current Government guidelines do not allow any large scale or nightclub events to take place.
Find out more about the Guild of Students' Welcome, and explore the range of activities taking place across the University.
