North east students are being invited to celebrate the start of the academic year at intu Metrocentre and intu Eldon Square.
intu Metrocentre’s student night on 28 September will give student shoppers the chance to take advantage of exclusive discounts and deals with over 75 offers from the shopping centre’s top retailers and restaurants such as River Island and Barburrito.
The money saving deals continue over at intu Eldon Square’s student night on 4 October with over 70 exclusive offers available including fantastic discounts at Topshop and tempting tasty deals at Pizza Express. With popular fashion retailers such as River Island doubling their standard student discount to 20% for this event – fashionistas really are spoilt for choice!
There will also be lots of free live entertainment. At intu Metrocentre students will be treated to a funky mix of Capital North East’s hottest music and get the chance to play fun games to win on the spot prizes. Students will also get a taster of some of the region’s hottest club nights with top DJs on the decks.
At intu Eldon Square games and giveaways will be taking place on the malls with Wagamama and Nando’s, and 500 lucky students chosen at random will also receive a free goodie bag. For a fun insight into student life, Capital North East is setting up a confessions booth – where students can spill the beans on their most crazy moments so far!
Capital North East has also put together the ultimate student survival package which is up for grabs at both centres – this includes an intu Gift Card, restaurant and cinema vouchers and free Krispy Kreme doughnuts – a prize guaranteed to start the academic year in style.
The events, which take place at intu Metrocentre from 3 pm and at intu Eldon Square from 4 pm, are run exclusively for local students every year. They are among a number of student nights being held at intu shopping centres up and down the country which last year attracted more than 120,000 students in total.
Karen Carr, regional marketing manager, intu north said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming thousands of students to intu Metrocentre and intu Eldon Square for this year’s student nights where as well as being treated to some brilliant entertainment, they’ll be able to make the most of the fantastic discounts and deals on offer.
“Thanks to intu’s national scale, we’ve been able to team up with some of the country’s best known brands and great live acts to give the north east’s student population a night to remember.”
Ian Elder, Ladies Product Manager at River Island, intu Eldon Square commented: “There’s always an exciting vibe when the students return to the region. We can’t wait for the student night where we’ll be on hand to give advice on the latest styles and help them revamp their autumn winter wardrobe for less!”
