Staffordshire University’s Student Union hosts ‘Stoketober Fest 2017’ for the first time


Staffordshire University’s Student Union is set to host ‘Stoketober Fest 2017’ for the first time as part of their own twist on “Oktoberfest”.

The event takes place at Staffordshire University’s very own Leek Road Venue on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 October, where the session starts at 6pm and runs until midnight.

Swetha Reddy, Vice President of Staffs Union said: “it would be great to bring this big fun event on to campus for students and the local public.

“We want to keep the buzz going on even after the welcome, as this is the time of year when the first years feel a little home sick.

“There will be lots of food, alcohol and funfairs for the day.”
