It’s that time of year again whereby thousands of students descend upon the City of Worcester to welcome in the new academic year. For first years, these initial few weeks of student life generally become the most unforgettable moments of your university career, as you find your way around campus life, make new friends and have a party all at the same time!
So, dig out your old school uniform and don your best 80s retro attire for a week of celebrations, because Tramps have just released their official Welcome Week line-up for 2017! Keep reading for the full lowdown.
WRISTBANDS AND TICKETS
One hundred Earlybird Wristbands will initially be on sale at the price of £44. If you purchase a wristband online now, you’ll be saving around 50% compared to buying tickets for the events individually. After all the Earlybird Wristbands have sold out, Advanced Wristbands will be available for £49. If you plan on attending the majority of events being held at Tramps this Welcome Week, we suggest considering the wristband option.
Tramps will have a stall in the Students' Union for you to collect your Wristbands on arrival weekend.
AVOID FAKE WRISTBANDS! Official Welcome Week tickets and wristbands can be purchased in advance through Tramps (http://www.trampsnightclub.co.uk/tickets) OR on the Students’ Unions website (https://www.worcsu.com/eatdrinkshop/welcomeweek/) from 5pm on Tuesday until arrival weekend.
