Stu­dents gear up for Kings­gate ‘lock-in’

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

A TOWN cen­tre shop­ping com­plex will be trans­formed into a haven of dis­counts and disco as the an­nual ‘stu­dent lock-in’ re­turns.

Thou­sands are ex­pected to flock to the Kings­gate Shop­ping Cen­tre in Hud­der­s­field on Mon­day, Septem­ber 24, for the sev­enth an­nual dis­count night.

Each year, high street stores at the King Street com­plex open their doors for one evening to of­fer re­turn­ing stu­dents the chance to stock up on clothes at dis­counted prices ahead of the new aca­demic year.

Stu­dents can ex­pect up to 25% off their favourite brands with par­tic­i­pat­ing re­tail­ers at this year’s event in­clud­ing: River Is­land, H&M, New Look, Top­shop, Pan­dora and Panini Shack.

As well as of­fers on clothes there will be tasty deals in the food court and a live DJ from Hud­der­s­field venue, Five Bar, play­ing through­out the night.

Ex­hi­bi­tion stalls with com­pa­nies such as NOWTV, Rev­o­lu­tion bar and Tokyo Hud­der­s­field will also be there of­fer­ing free­bies to shop­pers.

The event starts at 6pm and lasts for three hours.

It is to­tally free to en­ter al­though you do have to reg­is­ter for tick­ets at www. kings­gat­es­tu­dent­

A valid stu­dent ID is re­quired to take ad­van­tage of the dis­counts.

Last year 4,000 bar­gain hunters de­scended.

Cen­tre man­ager Jonathan Hardy said: “We’re ex­tremely ex­cited to wel­come back the stu­dent lock-in.

“Af­ter such a suc­cess­ful event last year, it made sense to do it again.”
