Calling all students! On Thursday 1 October, businesses on Park Street and Queens Road are taking part in Student Day, offering exclusive discounts to all students with a valid ID card.

For one day only, students will get the chance to pick up everything from a new gym membership to two-for-one cocktails, all with a hearty student discount. All stores involved have also extended their opening hours, meaning you have a whole day to stock up on essentials, take time out and treat yourself at the start of the new academic year.
