Calling all Universities!
As summer nears an end, Universities across the country are about to welcome thousands of new arrivals! A daunting experience for both as these first weeks will leave a lasting impression on the new arrivals and inspire the next three / four years of learning and growth.
A tradition that dates back hundreds of years (we had to check Google); a rite of passage that through the years has become more and more of an event to inspire your new students, Freshers' Week is the opportunity to really connect with your new sturdents. Not just about the nights out (they'll no doubt forget those thanks to a hangover), this is an opportunity to really speak out to your new arrivals, inspire confidence, create new friendships, offer a first impression that forms the bond between student and University.
"Our Welcome Week activities were all the more exciting thanks to Sunshine Events. All the staff were amazing from the booking process to the delivery and take down, we look forward to working with Sunshine Events again soon!"
Mark Gardner, Lancaster University Students Union
Giving your Students the right start with an unforgettable experience
You may be aware that the Fun Experts® have been inspiring fun at a variety of events for 15 years now. Every September, we look forward to the events that are put on across the nation at Universities. Creating an engaging experience, entertaining and informing students is much of what the first few weeks are about. The challenge for yourselves is how do you go about it. What makes for a truly fantastic event?
Working closely with the likes of Lancaster University, Brunel University, University of Bedfordshire, UCLan and more, the Fun Experts® have provided a selection of events over the years that engage students and support the relationship building between both.
"We had Sunshine Events come for a full day with 260 international students at Lancaster Uni! This was their favourite day of the program so far, they had so much fun and really got into the spirit of things! The staff ensured the students had a great time and everyone felt welcomed! Personally when I spoke to the Sunshine Events staff they were very helpful, they worked around the timetable which was running late and were super friendly!"

University of Bradford
Wanting to inject laughter into their week long student event, the University of Bradford knew exactly who to approach (that was us by the way) to add an element of fun and excitement to their event. Their Case Study helps build a clear picture of how to approach this type of event and the benefit to all involved.
"Sunshine Events provided me with an excellent service from start to finish. I contacted 6 other suppliers but Sunshine Events totally shone out the rest with their excellent customer service, product technology and swift responses. Our event went very well and I have received some excellent feedback from colleagues. The customer service team were excellent and our Fun Expert, Matt, was great! He arrived early, set up on time and was brilliant with our students. Sunshine Events provide a great service and I'm not sure how they can improve on it as everything met my expectations!"
Vikki Foxley-Sayles, University of Bradford
