So Freshtival

Party your way through a slick night filled with nostalgic 00s and early 10s tunes — with free Chupa Chups and fairy floss, too.

If you're of an age when you can remember burning your friend's So Fresh CD so you could stay up to date with the coolest songs of the season, congrats. You're old now. But also, congrats, because you will seriously enjoy this So Fresh shindig.

Returning for yet another round, the old-school get-together to end all old-school get-togethers is coming to The Wickham from 10pm on Saturday, April 13, 2024 — and it'll be playing bangers strictly of the 2000s and early-2010s vintage. You can expect a sing-along to The Veronicas' 'Untouched', a 'Macarena' flashmob (even though the song dates back to the 90s) and, of course, 'Mr Brightside' as a finale.

Tunes from High School Musical, Glee, One Direction, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Black Eyed Peas, Taylor Swift, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Clarkson and LMFAO will also feature. And, just throwing this out there: we're desperately hoping for a comeback of the Duff sisters duet 'Our Lips Are Sealed'.

As always, the retro tunes will come with plenty of party fun — such as 00s-themed drinks, a balloon wall for photos, a free glitter station, and even free fairy floss and lollipops. And the dress code? Donning threads from the era is recommended.

Tickets are on sale now, and of course it's obviously 18 and over — because if you're under 18 you definitely don't know what So Fresh is. Or CDs, probably.

If you need some motivation, let the Duff sisters take care of that:
