Students can enjoy giant inflatables, free drinks, special discounts and goodie bags as Sheffield city centre plays host to its first Student Shopping Festival on Thursday 27 September. And it’s all free!

More than 30 venues are getting involved, including Doc Martens, The Light cinema, Nando’s and Boots. Discounts of up to 30% off are being offered in stores, alongside free goodie bags, free drinks and craft masterclasses.

Students will be able to go head to head on the giant inflatable bungee run, enjoy live music from buskers and DJs, and taste some of the delicious food available in the city centre. The festival’s wellbeing zone will be the place to go for advice on mental health, sexual health and personal safety.

The event will run from 6pm – 8pm in Sheffield city centre, to receive discounts and offers you must bring valid student ID.
