Lockdown may have stopped us from bringing you a ‘normal’ Refreshers event, but we are excited to announce that our virtual Refreshers Fair open's on Wednesday 17th February.

The Fair will be open 24/7 and will last seven days, so you can join when it’s convenient for you.

When you enter the Fair you’ll see a virtual map filled with popular campus and Birmingham landmarks, by clicking on these icons you'll be able to navigate to different part of the Fair. From mental health support, to a housing information fair fabulous brands and more, there will be so much to do and see.

What's On


Housing Information Fair

We know that for many of you, housing is a hot topic right now. So, we’ve organised an informative fair so you can speak to local landlords and housing support services, and ask questions.



With the pandemic affecting the job market, we want to provide you with as many opportunities as possible to gain experience and become more employable. So we’re excited to announce that Pot Noodle will be hosting a careers fair advertising 100 internship opportunities.


Give it a Go

It’s never too late to try something new, and a great place to do just this is our Give it a Go Fair featuring our 500+ societies. No matter what you’re passionate about, you’re sure to find the perfect group for you.


Mental Health and Wellbeing Services

We’re living in very challenging times, and it’s natural to feel anxious or overwhelmed. If you find yourself needing to talk, there are a number of mental health and wellbeing services you can approach at the fair who can offer support.


Popular Brands

It wouldn’t be Refreshers Fair without a fantastic array of brands for you to meet and interact with. We’re talking Yakinori, Domino’s, Teach First, Girls who Graduate and more!
