The Freshers' Fair

is the single largest event organised by locals, and is your chance to see the vast opportunities that clubs, societies and teams can offer you in Oxford. Whilst not the most appealing of your first week adventures, the Fair is undoubtedly a highlight in Freshers’ Week. Over the summer hundreds of societies will have been working hard, producing their posters and honing their pitches to entice you to sign up to their societies. This year the Fair will boast over 400 clubs, teams and societies providing a one off chance to see just what Oxford kids really do get up to, to size each and every society up, meet its current members, and listen to why they think you should sign up.

This year the Fair will run on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 October, and will be followed by ReFreshers' Fair on Saturday 10, a chance for returners to catch up with the huge range of opportunities available at the Fair. Your college will tell you when you (and your new friends) will be attending, as well as how to get to our venue, the Exam Schools.

From signing up to these societies you’ll meet many of your future best friends, so remember; take your time, don’t be rushed and sign up to as many things as you can. This is a great opportunity to see what Oxford has to offer you and I look forward to seeing you all at the Fair!
