Welcome Freshers!

We’re out all week on both campuses saying hey to all you new arrivals – we hope you like Leicester as much as we do.

Make sure you grab a Firebug card from us at the earliest opportunity – You just have to show your student card and let us know where we can reach you if we need to. It gives you HAPPY HOUR PRICES ALL THE TIME, as well as AWESOME DISCOUNTS ON FOOD.

Need somewhere to work when the walls are closing in? We’ve got sweet wifi, lunch, comfy sofas and coffee (or beer / wine / cocktails if it’s not going so well) on tap.

Don’t forget to check the calendar and see what shows and club nights we’ve got coming up. We’re positive you’ll find something to love in there.
