The Freshers Festival Group delivers student events throughout Scotland, with growth into UK cities after acquisition of the business by The Expede Group in Spring 2018.


Founded by Graeme Barratt, the Freshers Festival Group runs Scotland’s most engaging and interactive student event, bringing together hundreds of global food and drink brands, famous bars and clubs and the biggest retail providers such as Just Eat and IKEA.

In partnership with fellow Expede Group company, YADA Events, the Freshers Festival will be expanding its operations across the UK, including the cities of London, Manchester and Birmingham between 2018-2020. The Expede Group completed its acquisition of the Freshers Festival in April 2018.
