Open to both commercial companies and charities, this is a great opportunity to distribute promotional materials, increase brand awareness and meet potential customers face to face. Freshers’ Fayre is renowned for being one of the most exciting events for the students and is an occasion not to be missed. Places are limited so early booking is recommended.
