The annual Student Lock-in evening at intu Uxbridge is back and bigger than ever!
Back for one night only, intu Uxbridge is calling on students to enjoy a unique shopping experience hosted by The Only Way Is Essex’s very own alumni – Joey Essex.
On Tuesday 14 October, students are invited to the exclusive event, featuring live entertainment, hundreds of giveaways and huge discounts from more than 35 retailers in centre, including River Island, H&M and USC.

Entertainment throughout the evening includes personal appearance from Joey Essex, Live DJ, complimentary beauty treatments, goody bags, competition giveaways and lots more.

The centre will also feature Hawaiian-inspired tiki bars hosted by Slug and Lettuce and a Desperados drinks van will be sampling drinks and giving away goodie bags throughout the evening.

During the evening, students will also be in with a chance to take part in the “locked-in” competition. Every customer who spends over £40 in stores will be offered a code to try and ‘unlock’ the centre’s prize vault for the chance to win a top range laptop and wireless Beatz headphones to make a day at uni even better!

Marketing manager at intu Uxbridge, Donna Watson, says:

“Every year our Student Lock-in gets bigger and better, and this year is set to be no different. We have fantastic retailers offering exclusive discounts as well as a range of entertainment planned throughout the entire evening.

“In the words of Joey Essex…it’s going to be Reem!”
