Freshers Week
in Manchester
Last updated on 7th December 2018

The madness of Manchester is on a high during Freshers’ Week, fuelled by its abundance of popular student venues and the city’s notorious nightlife status.

It’s not just the Gallagher brothers that put Manchester on the music map, the city is famed for hosting some of the best live music around. The Deaf Institute, Gorilla and Band on the Wall are all popular haunts for hearing great acts, and are great for dancing 'til dawn to international DJs. Their quirky interiors and great drink deals make them the perfect option for a cheap and cheerful night out.

For the ultimate indie experience, 5th Avenue and 42nd Street are two of Manchester’s prominent student clubs, or why not head to the Printworks, an old, industrial printing house converted into an entertainment complex and array of stylish bars and clubs.

From the chic Deansgate Locks to the uber-trendy Northern Quarter, Manchester is the ultimate student playground. See what’s coming up and don’t forget to book tickets early - you’re only a fresher once!
