    how many events does that do you for, and do you really feel like you'd go to all of them for the money? at our freshers it was 3-4 events for £28, and they had loads of spaces on the night. (then again it was rated as a fairly poor week)

    ye they are really expensive, i cant believe that the shed is so expensive on freshers week, some of my mates who went to uni last year said the unions and other places were like £1 - £3 entry and they had cheap drinks all week,
    is the shed usuallly that expensive or do they have cheap student nights like on some days in the week where everything is cheap?

    Its on par with town usually.

    If you want free beer, look on the floor for ticket stubs and take them to the bar for a 1/2 pint carling. I got hammered for free one night picking them up and asking people for them :rolleyes: . I'm not sure why you get 1/2 pint carling but they don't advertise the fact anywhere so I think its just a select few who are supposed to be able to abuse it.

    I'm not the leat bit interested in going , plus I need the money for another £800 9 month old computer upgrade

    Yeah, that is what is dragging me into getting one.

    Can you buy the tickets in Lincoln? Rather than the web-site.

    I didnt have one last year, all of my flatmates did but never used it so I was the one laughing.
    Not getting one this year either canny see the point in spending £40 when the Engine Shed will be packed, you cant get to the bar and have to stand and queue for ages

    Is absolutely everyone getting it??

    I don't think I am....well it's getting abit too late now anyway...but I just don't think I'll be attending every single one of those engine shed events...but then I do see the point of being left out when everyone has a ticket and you're left outside queuing for them not knowing if you'll get in or not!

    Btw this 'full freshers package' wrist band thing for £45.50...it only lets you into the engine shed events right? Nothing else? Don't understand why they call it the 'full freshers package' if it doesn't let you into every single freshers events, just the Engine Shed ones!
