Raw audio of the "Fresher's Fayre" event at the University of Surrey. It took place inside a large tent easily holding over 1000 people. A variety of clubs, societies and businesses were involved, which is why there is a random police siren as well as blurred music playing. The event had started 15 minutes prior, so this would likely be the busiest time.

    Good work--thanks! I used a bit of this large crowd, plus another one of your samples (cricket-night-ambience) in Chapter 11 of my podcast The Blizzard of Osborn. I credit your work on the Music page. Here's the link: https://theblizzardofosborn.blubrry.net/
