This Tuesday 24th September sees the welcome return of Manchester’s Student Social, an event taking place throughout the city centre from 12pm – 8pm. There’s hundreds of shops, restaurants and brands getting involved – here are just a few of them…

Manchester Arndale
Almost every store in the Arndale has got some kind of deal on all you have to do is wander around and decide which store you wanna drop a load of till at. Discounts on GAP, Levi’s, Fossil and Jack Wills are as high as 40%, while you can get up to 20% off UO, Boux Avenue, Topshop, Monki, Foot Asylum and Adidas. You can even save up to 270 sheets on a brand new Mac


Harvey Nichols
Harvey Nichols have got a massive party on throughout the day, that includes a FREE glass of Prosecco in-store, beauty masterclasses, exclusive gifts and more, all sound tracked by live DJ’s. You can also get yourself 10% off AW19 Fashion, Accessories and beauty with the Harvey Nichols App – go on get that Fenty Beauty Kit.

Alright, Fresher, here’s the low-down. Debenhams ground floor is full of almost every beauty brand you can think of. What’s more they ALL know what they’re talking about. They’re hosting beauty demonstrations and tutorials, so stop watching them Youtube videos and see it LIVE across the store. There’s gifts, games and giveaways PLUS a 20% off on purchases.  


Food & Drink
If you still weren’t sold on getting involved in the deals, here’s the clincher, being that food is the best thing in the world. There’s some scrummy cheap Italian eat up for grabs with 50% OFF Bella Italia and Wolf Italian Street Food. You can even get a 99p BURRITO from Barburrito (yep, you read that right.) There’s loads of discounts at all the food chains of up to 40% too, including Pizza Hut, Five Guys, real good chicken at Nandos and even fancy pants Italian at Gino D’Acampo’s.


Mini Festival on Market Street
Market Street is even welcoming a mini festival courtesy of Totum (the new NUS). They’ll be DJs, food stalls and plenty of freebies. From 12pm too, Jägermeister and Almost Famous are taking over the street with loads of competitions and cash prizes to be won.
