Due to its phenomenal success the Uk's biggest freshers pass has returned for 2023 which includes Three of the biggest events during Freshers Week & Halloween. We've kept it simple, & kept it CHEAP!
Join thousands of new university students as you gain access into two of the biggest events in your city! Grab your Freshers pass early as once they sell out there will be no further allocations! ❌NO TICKETS ON THE DOOR! ❌
⚠️ REFUNDABLE TICKETS ⚠️ Be eligible for a refund on your ticket if you unfortunately don’t get your first choice university. (Get an automatic transfer ticket if your second choice university has a Freshers Pass in that city.)
⛔️IMPORTANT - THIS IS NOT A WRISTBAND.⛔️ We don't believe in tying you into 14 events over 2 weeks which means you have to go out every night just to get the value out of it! SO... Instead we've selected 2 of the biggest events from freshers week & after (Includes massive Halloween blockbuster event) , which you do not want to miss!! Then we've put them together in one simple PASS.. PLUS We've even made it cheaper than buying them all individually!!
Whats not to love? Heres what you can expect from your freshers week 2023......

⚠️ BEWARE OF COPY CAT IMITATIONS ⚠️ - Icebreaker has been running since 2012, and has been at the heart of every freshers week since. Listing only legitimate & best venues in every city. Dont be fooled by other events trying to imitate The Big Freshers Icebreaker. There IS ONLY ONE!!
Since our inception in 2012, no other freshers company has sold more tickets than us. We know what a proper party looks like. We are often imitated but never truly replicated as we offer an experience and a production level that is a cut above the rest. We want you to experience the very best in freshers week, and give you memories that will last a life time, as you embark into university life and adulthood.
We welcome you to take a look at a mixture of our photo albums from different cities all the way back in 2012

We know it can be confusing when looking what freshers events & what to buy so we have listed some red flags you should look out for:
🚩 No venues listed for the event/events - or venues listed in unsafe parts of the city
🚩 No previous photos or video evidence of the event happening
🚩 Vague or nonsensical event descriptions
🚩 99p tickets listed in venues that are undesirable
🚩Small event following, companies with big Fatsoma followings are reputable, every time someone buys a ticket they are added to your Fatsoma following.
✅ Across The Big Freshers Icebreaker, The Big Freshers Ball, The Big Freshers Pass & The Halloween Nightmare we have a combine following of over 500,000. Thats half a million students that have previously attended our events over the years. ✅
🗣️ Do I need to collect a physical pass?
✅ No, when you buy a pass you will be sent an E-Ticket, this will grant you access to all three events. We suggest downloading the Fatsoma app, in the app under the 'My Orders' section your Big Freshers Pass ticket will appear.
🗣️ Can my non-university friends or partner attend?
✅ Yes they can! They will still need to have purchased their own tickets but every student is allowed 2 non students to join them for entry.
🗣️ Why do the tickets come in different price tiers?
✅ There is only a limited amount of passes we can sell. Therefore we operate a festival style ticketing model. The earlier you buy your pass the cheaper it will be.
🗣️Does my ticket need to be in my name?
✅ No it doesn't, we just need to scan your barcode. However, please be cautious when buying tickets from a third party.
🗣️Where can I collect my add ons? (Icebreaker T-Shirt, LED Batons & Masquerade Mask)
✅ When you get entry into the event, simply show a member of our staff your add on ticket and you will be given these upon entry.
🗣️What ID will I need to provide on entry?
✅ You will need to show a valid driving licence, provisional driving licence or passport. This is in line with the national guidelines and nightclub entry requirements policy.
