It’s nearly time for fresher’s week, but which wristband should you buy?

Manchester’s Student’s Union has decided to cater for all students by announcing two wristbands for Welcome Week. They have the Welcome or the Explore wristbands.

The ‘Welcome Wristband’ is perfect for anyone coming to Manchester this year craving a night out! The wristband gains you access to events from the notorious welcome party where first years wear matching Hall’s t-shirts to an ice-breaker evening hosted by Dick & Dom. This will be a fun-fuelled night of crazy games, competitive challenges between halls followed by a DJ battle between Dick & Dom.

Fancy something a little different, choose the new ‘Explore Wristband’ which hosts a whole variety of activities including daytime walking tours of the city, Manchester United stadium tours, a roller disco, live music and more.
