Newcastle Uni Freshers Week Wristbands.. Watch
More about Newcastle University
Just checked it out, thought it was a bit crap having to pay for it anyway, I thought 20 quid would be fairly resonable but 55??!!!! Can anyone tell me if I even NEED to buy this wristband or can I do plenty throughout the week without it?
Also, there's a £2.50 booking fee so it actually costs £57.50 :/
But then if you look at some of the stuff you can do with it it seems great value. Paintballing, quad biking, beach buggies and all the rest of it. Would cost you a lot more then £55 if you wanted to do all that stuff without a wristband.
I suppose it depends how many activities you do to how good a value it is. I'm planning to make full use of it.
It covers entry to all nights the Student Union is holding, plus any they organise at venues in the city, transport to and from your halls, loads of cool daytime events also with transport, and you'll probably get a free drink or 3 at the night events and freebies during the day.
Just buy it and go all-out in the week, you won't regret it
Newcastle freshers week has the reputation of being rhe best in the country, and as someone above mentioned, all the daytime actvities you get with it would come to far, far more than £55, and the night time events, as someone else said, you get numerous free drinks, and ridiclously discounted drinks thereafter. Not only this but the nighttime events are meant to be absolutely quality, so tbh it would be foolish not to get it.
If you think about it you might pay a fiver on a normal night to get into the best clubs. and your doing this for a whole week. Plus all the activites during the day like cocktail making at revs, yo shushi, bowling etc etc. It really pays for itself.
Plus to nights in the union are brilliant. You meet so many people.
I'd love to do it all again.
Free drinks here and there, plus all the day time stuff you can do.
I definitely think I'll get my monies worth!
Just got a letter from Newcastle about my History course. There is going to be a few induction days in the first week and a visit to some museam. I wish we had been told before the wristbands went on sail- I won't get to make as much use of the bands as I had wanted to with it conflicting with some of this History stuff.
But you know, if you just wanna meet up with a bunch of other people who don't wanna spend £55... you're in Newcastle, you can do all those things anyways. I'll be honest, I'm not paying anything until I know exactly what the activities are.

Quick question about collecting the wristband. It says you need ID, your uni acceptance letter and a pint-out of the email - does the letter from UCAS confirming your place at newcastle count as the acceptance letter?
