Freshers' Fortnight

28 Sep 2016 - 12:00am
9 Oct 2016 - 11:00pm

To welcome the new Freshers into the Leckhampton community, the MCR Committee has prepared two weeks chock-full of events. Everybody, Freshers and non-Freshers alike, is invited to partake.

For more information check the new Freshers's Guide Handbook 2016!

During Fresher's weeks, the Leckhampton Bar is normally open from 7pm in the evening (on Sundays from 8:30pm). It's a great place to meet new people, chat and have a drink. The exact opening times can be found here.
