One of the most popular dates in the city’s student calendar is approaching in September.


St George’s Shopping Centre hosts the Student Session, the new name for what was the student shop-in.

Students from the University of Central Lancashire, Preston’s College, Cardinal Newman and other establishments get the run of the shopping centre with exclusive discounts and events.

For three hours there’s the chance to meet celebs, get money off in dozens of stores and enjoy live music and win prizes.
