The St George’s Centre Student Session is back with promotions, prizes and a bouncing after party courtesy of Bongo’s Bingo.


From 6pm on October 1 the centre will shut host the annual lock in for the student-only event.

Students from across Lancashire and further afield are invited to take advantage of slashed prices in some of their favourite stores such as River Island, New Look, Superdrug, HMV, The Body Shop and many more.

There will be pop up stalls from local bars and clubs and national retailers showcasing their wares.

Retailers will be offering huge discounts and special offers, while the mall will come alive with free entertainment, brand promotions as well as an exclusive Bongo’s Bingo after party!

In between all this shopping, students can dive into the selfie ball-pit for a free photo print out and the chance to win prizes as part of the golden ball hunt.

But the height of the entertainment comes from rave phenomenon, Bongo’s Bingo, which won Time Out’s ‘Most Original Night Out’ award in 2018!

The outrageous live show will appear for the first time ever at an UK student shopping centre event. Students can expect hilarious dance-offs,
hands-in-the-air anthems, comedy and novelty prizes (think Henry the Hoover), as they have the chance to take part in a lucky-dip to win.

Andrew Stringer, Centre Manager commented: “We look forward to this event every year, but this year is bigger and better than ever as we team up with famous Bongo’s Bingo.

“We wanted to provide a shopping event unlike any other and we have no doubt the crazy Bongo’s Bingo experience will give our students just that.”

Students must pre-register by visiting the centres Facebook page or website and by doing so will be entertained into a competition to win a whopping £1,000 cash prize.
