Autumn Opportunities for Businesses


University of Chichester Freshers Fair – Bognor Regis Campus The University of Chichester’s Student Union are organising the first Fresher’s Fair to be held on the Bognor Regis campus for a number of years, and the students are ready to meet you and keen to engage! The price for a day’s pitch is only £50 + VAT, and it’s a great way to get involved in this new event that they’re looking to grow over the next few years.


The Student Union is really keen for all types of businesses – night and daytime economy – to get involved. From a town centre perspective, it would be fantastic to see more Uni students choosing Bognor Regis as their “local” – whether that’s to shop, eat, drink, have their legs waxed, hair cut or spend their night out. Having recently visited the Tech Park, I can honestly say that it’s an incredible facility, and we’re missing a trick if we’re not trying to engage with the students and showcase the brilliant businesses that are literally on their doorstep.

  • The fair is on Thursday 16th September, running 10am till 3pm (set up from 9am).

  • 3x3m spaces (perfect for a pop-up gazebo) area available for £50 + VAT.

  • All stands will be central on the campus

  • Open to all businesses - day and night time economy - looking to attract students (and, of course their visiting family members) to their businesses

  • BOOKING DEADLINE: 03/9/21

How to book a place at the Freshers Fair I’m really keen to gauge BR BID business interest in the event, so have offered to collate details to send on to the Student Union until 15th August. So, if you’re interested in taking part, please would you drop me a quick email at heather@brbid.org and I’ll connect you to make the formal booking. I’d also really like to hear from you if you’re interested in taking part, but there are reasons you’re not keen to commit – once I know the reasons we may be able to find a way forward. Again, please email me at heather@brbid.org and we can arrange a convenient time to talk it through. Other ways to promote your business to University of Chichester Students The Student Union offer a range of services and options to promote your business to the student community – you’ll find their media pack at: ucsu.org/mediapack Kind regards, Heather Heather Allen BR BID Co-Ordinator heather@brbid.org
