Students from across Lancashire are gearing up for Preston’s student shopping & leisure event of the year: Literally, thousands have signed up for the exclusive three hour student shopping event, which takes place tonight.


The St George’s Student ShopFest will take over Preston’s premier shopping centre between 6pm–9pm.

With exclusive discounts from national and independent retailers, ShopFest promises to be an event to remember as celebrity fashionista, Gok Wan headlines the event with a guest DJ set.

On top of this, the two-storey shopping centre will come alive with performances from live musicians, the city’s best nightclub DJs, guests from Preston North End, characters from Scare Kingdom and Tower Dungeon… Plus, one lucky attendee will walk away with £1,000 in cash.

Centre manager, Andrew Stringer, told Podio: “With just a week to go preparations are well under way to ensure that guests attending ShopFest have a night to remember. Our retailers have once again pulled out all the stops to offer outstanding discounts – coupled with Gok’s attendance and incredible activity around the centre, we’re in for a really great night.

Free tickets are available from ShopFestPreston.co.uk.
