Student lock-in event at Aberdeen shopping centre returns

Huge queues formed as excited students prepared for last year’s event.

A student lock-down shopping event is set to return for its seventh year.

Bon Accord and St Nicholas shopping centre will be hosting the event on Tuesday, September 26, at 6.30pm where students will get to enjoy discounts, food and drink, live music, makeovers and entertainment.

Last year saw a record 7,000 students attend the event, with a queue forming outside the centre from 3pm on the day.

Craig Stevenson, centre manager, said: “It’s set to be our biggest turnout yet and we are looking forward to welcoming all the students to the centre.”
