Freshers Week
in Leeds
Last updated on 7th December 2018

Leeds is the pick of Yorkshire’s student cities, and with good reason, thanks to its booming student nightlife. If you’ve just arrived in Leeds and are looking for the most unmissable events this Freshers’ Week, don’t fear – you’ll be able to find tickets for all of them below.

Leeds’ indie scene is one of the best in the country and rest assured there will be plenty of gigs for you to bond over when you arrive. The iconic Brudenell Social Club will be welcoming the likes of Goat Girl, Electric Six, They Might Be Giants and Mitski this September, while St. Vincent will be hitting the O2 Academy on 28 August should you arrive in the city early.

No student arriving in Leeds can fail to be aware of Leeds’ famous dance scene with MiNT Club and MiNT Warehouse the picks of the city’s venues. Don’t miss their all-day MiNT Festival on Saturday 22nd September which will see DJs like Tom Zanetti, Skream and Patrick Topping bringing the party. If that sounds too intense, you can always ease your way in with regular student nights at Tiger Tiger, The Wardrobe and The HiFi Club. Whatever you do, enjoy your Freshers’ Week in Leeds!
