Date & Time
Manchester Arndale & Market Street

The BID teams up with Manchester Arndale to host a biannual student shopping extravaganza in the spring and at the start of autumn term. The spring edition was previously the MCR Student Spring Break, but for 2017 we’re running two big Night Outs!

Manchester’s students can snap-up over 200 big discounts, and enjoy DJs and entertainment on the streets and inside the shopping centre. High spending international students are a key market and many stores report double digit increases.
