Star-struck students descended on the Galleria on Thursday, October 13, and took selfies with the reality TV star on the red carpet.

There were also discounts on offer from brands such as French Connection, Calvin Klein, Gap and Nike, with some items up to 33 per cent off. Throughout the evening students were able to take advantage of food and drink offers from Chiquito, Nandos and Frankie and Benny’s, who took 20 per cent off the final bill.

Students played the golden beach ball game in Get Wild! and took part in a gaming tournament at CEX. A DJ truck from Jägermeister offered mini tasters.

Galleria marketing manager Ellenor Penny said: “We were delighted with the turnout to this year’s Student Night, with students from The University of Hertfordshire and local colleges flocking to the centre for the big discounts, fun and games, and of course Joey Essex.

“The Student Night is fast becoming one of our busiest events and our retailers reported fantastic sales.”
