MODULE: Promote Yourselves

Freshers’ Fair

The biggest event of the year!

Freshers’ Fair is an amazing opportunity for societies to gain new members!

Your society has been allocated a stall at the fair and all core committee are invited to attend!

Fair Details

  • Date – 30TH September

  • Location – Falmer


  1. Use signage, tablecloth, posters and photos! – Design a welcome event flyer and poster or even a QR code to the event (Free designs on Canva) encourage anyone interested to take a photo so they have the details saved!

  2. Make it Eye Catching! Decorate with flags, bunting, artwork, images and posters. This will add colour and make you stand out from the crowd.

  3. Make it clear! What is your Society about? Why should members join? Make it easy for visitors to get an idea of your society as soon as they see your stand.

  4. You get £50 of FREE printing per year! Make use of this for your stand! Visit an SU reception for more info.

  5. Freebies! Everyone loves freebies, entice them over then tell them all about your society.

  6. Make a Rota for your stall. You get 3 x stall holder passes per society – 2 stay on the stall while one takes a break. Keep rotating so you can all take regular breaks, it’s a long day (6 hours), this way everyone will be refreshed and still have lots of energy!

  7. Keep music low or people won’t be able to hear you speak.

  8. Mingle with other Societies and make contacts. Think of all the collaboration projects you could work together on!

  9. Social Media! Tweet it! Snap it! put it on Facebook! Post it on as many Fresher’s pages as you can find, and tell people exactly where to find your stall!

  10. Have Fun! The buzz is electric.
