The MCR Student Social takes over town

3rd Oct 2022
MCR Student Social, our annual partnership event with Manchester Arndale, saw thousands head into the city centre last Thursday. Students enjoyed all the entertainment Manchester’s fantastic brands put on.

The event is planned to showcase the BID’s retail offer, in support of our business community. The event is marketed to Greater Manchester’s 100,000+ strong student population.

Footfall was up:

·        +48% on Market Street, +36% city wide v LY

·        +27% on Market Street, +29% city wide v LW

Many thanks to all who came down, our media partner The Manc Group, and every Business Improvement District and CityCo business that took part. A great day.
