There will be a Freshers’ Fair taking place over Thursday 22 September and Friday 23 September, where students can join clubs, societies and grab loads of freebies. The Guild will also be holding a Free Shop on Monday 19 September and Tuesday 20 September where new and returning students can get a range of household items. This is part of our Leave Liverpool Tidy project which redistributes unwanted kitchen and household items.
Guild President Sean Turner, said: “This will be my fourth Welcome Week in Liverpool. Our team has been working hard to trump the last few years’ efforts and I think they may well pull it off! I’m particularly excited to see Riot Jazz and, if you haven’t been before, you MUST experience Bongo’s Bingo.”
