Yorkshire’s premier shopping destination is getting ready to welcome thousands of students on Thursday 8th May for their student lock in. The event will take place at Meadowhall Shopping Centre between 6pm-9pm where students from across the region can enjoy offers and discounts at their favourite stores.
The spring student lock in is looking to be a big one as hundreds of high street stores and high-end brands are offering discounts, including 20 per cent off at Urban Outfitters and 15 percent off at Celeb Boutique. Other shops are even offering a 50 percent discount including; Footasylum, New Look and Schuh. Krispy Kreme are offering their ‘Double Dozen’ for just £12.
There will be other events going on throughout the night for students to enjoy. Capital FM presenter Simon Hirst will be entertaining the shoppers with live music, a bucking bronco and a surf simulator. Events manager Alex Caley said: “The Meadowhall Student Lock in is always a highlight in the calendar and we’re looking forward to welcoming thousands of students through the doors at this week’s event.
“We have hundreds of discounts and offers ready for the students to get their hands on – alongside a raft of entertainment and prizes up for grabs. So if you are a student and haven’t already signed up – register at the Meadowhall website now.”
The event is also a highlight for the students, who come flocking every year to get their hands on the deals. Jodie Vero, a student at Sheffield Hallam University said, “The student lock in is a great event for students who can’t normally afford to shop at these stores. I attend every year and I will be going on Thursday.”
Meadowhall has excellent transport links that students can use, due to the Meadowhall Passenger Transport Interchange (MPTI). This has facilities for local and regional bus, train and supertram services.
