The Official Trent Freshers at NTU: Friday 15th - Sunday 24th September 2023

The answers to all of your event and pass questions

Every year we host the Official Nottingham Trent Freshers, a programme of diverse events spanning 10 days at the best venues in Nottingham. The Freshers Pass allows you to customise your selection of events that you attend this September.  If you buy a pass, you will be able to use it to choose which 5 events you would like to attend saving you money on buying tickets to 5 individual events.

You can buy your pass here.

The Freshers Priority Pass was available during July and August allowing priority access to 7 events before the individual events went on general sale to those without a pass.  This gave the opportunity to book tickets before others guaranteeing a spot at the best events. The Freshers Pass is available during September and allows buyers to book 5 events of their choice for a discounted rate, saving money on purchasing tickets to 5 individual events.  The Priority Pass is no longer available, but you can purchase a Freshers pass here:
