The new University term is about to begin and we thought we would mention what we have planned for Freshers Week through Bagthing. If you are interested in including a flyer in our packs or you would like to hire our street team please contact us on [email protected]

We are expecting to distribute 7,000 bags over the course of Freshers Week to students from all three Universities (Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan, Salford). We will be distributing flyer packs daily on the street outside the Freshers Fairs at each University and we will also be targeting all the best student clubnights taking place each night throughout Freshers week. 

Alternatively, we also have a street team of 30+ people who will be distributing individual flyers for specific clubnights or events. So if you would like good quality, experienced staff distributing your leaflets to new students from all three Universities then let us know and we can facilitate this for you. You can pick the time and place which the flyers are distributed and we will supply the staff. 

We currently manage the street teams of a variety of Manchester venues and bars and so if you would like to have a presence on the street but don’t have the time to recruit, train and organise a street team then let us know and we can sort out regular shifts for you. 

During Freshers Week we will be at these locations distributing Bagthing packs;

Street Team
