Students enjoy alternative Fresher’s Fair
Article date: 28 Oct 2011

The Hedley Verity, in Leeds, staged an alternative Fresher’s Fair event, for students studying and living in the Yorkshire city.

The pub offered food tasters and samples, various activities including a rodeo bull riding machine, as well as a free-to-enter draw with the chance to win a year’s university fees (£9,000) paid, as part of the ‘Wetherspoon Unlocked’ launch.

The ‘Wetherspoon Unlocked’ campaign uses innovative digital content to promote a range of drink and food offers to students. 

The individual offers are featured in a range of beer mats in the pubs. Each of the beer mats has a different symbol and students can activate the symbols, by downloading the Wetherspoon Unlocked application.

Hudson Simmons, pub manager at The Hedley Verity, said: “Our Fresher’s Fair gave the students the chance to see what we have to offer and provided a bit of fun for everyone, before the hard work started.”
