Being buried in the middle of exams straight after the Christmas break (not to mention the chilly weather) might make the heady heights of Welcomefest last year seem an awful long time ago… But don’t worry, the amazing folk at Hull University Union have some awesome events planned to make sure that your second semester gets off to an absolutely stonking start.

WelcomeFest the Reunion starts on Monday 28th January with a fair at student central from 10 in the morning and closes on Sunday 3rd February with a trip to the Humber Bridge Farmer’s Market (though we reckon some of you might call it a week after free entry Shuffle at the Welly on the night of Saturday 3rd February.

In between those dates are an absolute ton of things for you to get involved with – there’s the return of the popular Speedfriending event, a Harry Potter quiz at Sanc, trips to places like York Ice Trail and Hull Escape Rooms, free entry to Jelly and the newly-refurbished Piper (they appear to have a rainforest sign) and most excitingly, a VK Takeover at Tower featuring Pete Wicks… Plus tons more.

So whatever you’re into, there’s bound to be something to tickle your fancy, help you wind down after exam stress and kick off semester two with a proper bang!
