James has worked in Student Events since leaving college in 2001. He became Managing Director of the pioneering ‘Nightclub Information’ before leaving to found Wicked Student Nights in 2005. James is a zealous entrepreneur, whose brands span events, digital marketing, experiential campaigns and event day staffing but it’s his passion for student events that has seen Wicked Student Nights go from strength to strength! He strived to build a hard-working, fun-loving team who are passionate about the business but still love to party!
It's James’ Vision that has taken Wicked Student Nights from a fun project to the UK's most influential and professional Student Events brand.
Ferg has been immersed in the student events scene since he first started promoting parties whilst studying at King’s College London. James brought Ferg into various businesses, including Nightclub Information, before they founded Wicked Student Nights. Ferg has a strong belief that the success of the student events scene is based on the involvement of current students, and our unique commission structure, meant students could be involved like never before (and rewarded for their hard work.)
This involvement with clubs, societies and key individuals, laid the blueprint for Wicked Student Nights progression to working as official nightlife partners with so many Students Unions, something that was previously unheard of.
Jason first worked with Wicked Student Nights as a fresher studying Business at the University of Westminster. Jason developed a passion for the events business and on graduating was drawn to the world’s biggest party destination, Ibiza. He rose to become events and promotions manager at Pukka Up Boat Parties, but when he was ready to return to London, there was only one team he wanted to work with! Jason joined as Head of Events and is now running the show as Managing Director.
Jason’s passion for music sees him travel the world and his network of DJs ranging from new underground talent to some of the biggest stars in the world is unparalleled.

She is a great addition to the team, using the knowledge gained from her studies and sharing her insights into the wants and needs of current students.
