Meadowhall Shopping Centre hosted the biggest ever student shopping event on Thursday, September 25, with more than 22,000 students from across South Yorkshire enjoying hundreds of exclusive discounts.
The Centre, located in Sheffield, opened its doors to a record breaking sea of students as they took advantage of exclusive offers from retailers such as Vans, Pretty Green, Ted Baker and Topshop.
Hosted by drive time Capital FM presenter James Cusack, students were given the chance to grab a last minute outfit for fresher’s week whilst enjoying live entertainment from rising talent Suddenly Us and capturing the night in a quirky traditional British ‘Telephone Photo Booth’.
New student to Sheffield Sophie Arundale, 22, said: “It’s been a great night at Meadowhall – there were so many bargains on offer and what a brilliant way to meet other freshers – it has given us a proper welcome to the city!”
Sheffield Sixth Former, Laura Swindells, aged 18, said: “I came along with a group of friends and we’ve really taken advantage of all the offers tonight including grabbing a bite to eat at Chao Baby.
“We came in back in May for the spring shopping event and this one has been even better! We’re already planning to come again next year!”
Meadowhall Events Manager, Alex Caley, said: “The Ultimate Student Shopping Night was a huge success – with record breaking numbers of students making it the biggest ever event of its kind.
“We wanted to provide an opportunity for students – from sixth form, college and university – to come along and see what the Centre has to offer and enjoy an evening of fun, music and entertainment throughout the malls.
