Welcome to the biggest, craziest, most talked about event of your freshers week.
SOLD OUT EVERY YEAR SINCE 2009!
2024 is our 15 year Anniversary and we plan to celebrate in style. Get ready for an Icebreaker experience that is bigger and better than ever!
Over the last 15 years The Big Freshers Icebreaker has provided a right of passage between ordinary life and University for over 500,000 students... and now it's your turn. This is the most successful and well attended freshers event in UK history!
This is not just an event... It's a tradition! We sell out very far in advance every year, so please make sure to buy your ticket early. This is not your usual budget student night event, this is a high end production show that will live long in your memory!
We offer something everyone can enjoy, we work hard to make our event the most inclusive there is. Big parties and drinking might not be your thing but Icebreaker is all about making friends and being the standout night as you adjust to university life and enter adulthood!
Social Wristband Challenges & Icebreaker Competition:
Every ticket comes with an Icebreaker wristband which is collected on arrival. On each wristband there will be a list of social challenges to complete on the night with your new flatmates! We don't need to tell you how to make friends, but we certainly know how to mix things up and make things interesting 😏 😈
Our shows vary from venue to venue so make sure to check the individual Facebook event for your city. Here's some of the stuff we'll be throwing at you this year:

❗️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

✅ Across all of our The Big Freshers Icebreaker events we have welcomed over 500,000 people through the doors. That's half a million students that have previously attended our events over the years. ✅
🗣️ 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 tickets we can sell. Therefore we operate a festival style ticketing model. The earlier you buy your ticket 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)
✅ 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.

✅ 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.
