Overview

Freshers trip happens once a year and is based in the Peak District.

Because of the term time table this happens during the last week of October or the first week of November. The trip is the first 'real rock' trip for freshers.

Travelling by minibus is the prefered mode of trasport as it's very socialable and you'll get to meet lots of new people. Old farts are on the trip as well as freshers and current students so it's a good mix of people.
