Foyleside Shopping Centre will be helping students settle into the new semester by hosting a festival-themed evening on Thursday 6th October. 

This event has proved immensely popular in the past as Derry welcomes thousands of new and returning students to the city each year. Those gearing up for their studies at Ulster University’s Magee Campus or one of the North West Regional College sites are encouraged to come along to enjoy some live music, entertainment, store discounts and giveaways. 

The music will be headlined by popular duo ‘DJ and Sax’, with entertainment in the form of arcade games, mocktail station, spin-to-win games and a silent disco.

Foyleside has over 50 stores to choose from, many of which will be offering discounts for students. Additional promotions will be provided by well-known brands such as Tayto, RedBull and The Bentley Bar. 

Fergal Rafferty, Foyleside Centre Manager, commented: “We’re delighted to announce the details for this year’s student night and can’t wait to welcome everyone along to the centre. Our previous student nights have all been massive successes and our upcoming event looks set to follow that trend. 

“Whether you’re a new student who has recently moved to the area, or someone who has been studying here for a while, there is something for everyone at this event. And who knows, you might even make a new friend or two! 

“We hope everyone has a wonderful evening and on behalf of Foyleside, I’d like to wish every student the best of luck in the upcoming academic year.” 

Foyleside’s Freshers Fest will take place on Thursday 6th October from 5pm-8pm.
