Five Reasons to Buy a Welcome Wristband

Here are our top five reasons you should probably buy one of our Welcome Wristbands...

1. Welcome yourself to the City community and make friends for life!


No pressure but you are about to meet some of the greatest people you will ever know, equipping yourself with a wristband for our jam packed Fresher's programme gives you a head start.

2. Save those precious pennies!


We know that as a student you need to save those pennies, our Wristbands helps you by saving you nearly 20%, plus its not just for one week of events - you get TWO!

3. Guaranteed entry to the events you won't want to miss PLUS an exclusive 'Party at the Circus'


There's nothing worse than turning up to an event and being told it's at capacity. Our Fresher's events get very busy, buying a Welcome Wristband secures you queue jump and entry into our events for up to an hour after opening! 

As a Wristband holder you will also get access to our exclusive event at Trapeze Bar!

4. An excellent cure for homesickness


Moving to a new home and a new City can be a nerve-racking and scary experience but meeting people and enjoying events with new friends is a great way to settle into your new home.

5. Last but not least, avoid FOMO


By definition FOMO (fear of missing out) means 'anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening elsewhere, often aroused by posts seen on social media.'. Let's face it, nobody wants that.

Okay, I'm sold how do I buy a Wristband?

The Wristband gets you in:

  • Welcome to London @ Zoo Bar
