Students gear up for Kingsgate ‘lock-in’
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. kingsgatestudentlockin.co.uk.
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.”
