The unique and very much crazy show will feature Bongo’s Bingo’s largest ever live-stream, incredible DJ sets from Clean Bandit and special guests, as well as heaps of prizes to be won during the show. There’s already an ever-growing roster of universities signing-up to access this show exclusively for their students, offering them a unique way to come together and party online as the options to go out dwindle with Covid-19.

It’s fair to say going or returning to university will be a very different experience this year and let’s face it, it’s been a very strange time for everyone. But the team at The Collab & Paradigm Agency have worked together to find a way to bring an evening of outrageous fun to all students this October for one spectacular night-only, presented by Southern Comfort, the unique Spirit of New Orleans.

Jonny Bongo and the guys are bringing their magic and mayhem-inspired quiz show chaos and a university-style challenge for the chance to win huge prizes, including an all-expenses paid experience from Southern Comfort and an entire year of free sneakers from schuh. Clean Bandit will top off the show, performing an exclusive DJ set as a group. Following multiple hits, including 4 UK number ones, Clean Bandit and Mabel have recently released ‘Tick Tock’ featuring 24kGoldn which is rapidly steaming up the UK charts – link to the track here: https://youtu.be/yC8SPG2LwSA

Fun-loving students nationwide will be able to interact with the action-packed 3-hour show whilst enjoying Southern Comfort’s brand new cocktail, Passionate Twist. Prepare yourself for a fruity taste explosion, twisting together Southern Comfort, passionfruit juice, orange juice and accessorised with a watermelon wedge (watermelon sweets are fun too!). All of the ingredients will be available to order from Co-op through Deliveroo, so that students can experience the taste of New Orleans from the comfort of their homes during the one-off event.

Leading up to the event, participating Universities will be promoting the ‘Freshers Goes Virtual’ event as part of their official Freshers’ Week programme. Students will be able to buy tickets using their unique university access code. Tickets are £5 plus a small booking fee.

Student’s unique e-tickets will allow them access to stream the ‘Freshers Goes Virtual’ show on one device. Their ticket will take them to a bespoke event landing page for their University, where they can interact with fellow students through the unique chat room function. For those students who desperately want in on the action but their University isn’t signed up, there are a limited number of special tickets to access the stream for £8 +bf a ticket.

Scottish Universities Taking Part: UNIVERSITY OF DUNDEE / UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH / UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW / UNIVERSITY OF STIRLING / UNIVERSITY OF STRATHCLYDE / UNIVERSITY OF THE WEST OF SCOTLAND
