Get Fed At The Freshers’ Festival

Everyone who has ever been to a previous Scotcampus Freshers’ Festival will know that one of the major highlights involves food sampling. Lots of food sampling!

Each year we team up with big name brands as well as some of Scotland’s most exciting eating destinations to give you guys stacks of free grub. In the past we’ve had Relentless Energy Drinks, Domino’s Pizza and Pot Noodle getting involved to name just a few.

This year, we’re stepping it up once more and have signed up some top quality local restaurants who are keen to test their recipes on you.

A massive success with attendees last year, Pinto Mexican Kitchen will once more be making it along to showcase their spicy specialties. They’ll be joined by Di Maggio’s – one of the country’s most famous Italian restaurants.

That’s not all though, Pizza Express will also be on hand to let you see why they’re one of the best in the business, plus you can enjoy some more unusual cuisine from brilliant Brazilian restaurant Tropeiro.

Of course with eight weeks till the event and plenty of interested parties already in the mix, we can guarantee there’ll be a few more exhibitors keen to join in the fun and make sure you’re fed.
