Valid From 19 Sep - 30 Nov

We are sorting out your back to school or university plans with some amazing deals on offer.

Whether you fancy a bit of bowling or a good night out, the popular leisure venue will ensure students won’t have to break the bank when it comes to having a great time.

Great Northern Beach Club

Students can celebrate the start of term at the Great Northern Beach Club’s closing down party for free. Two mega beach-themed parties will celebrate the end of the summer season, giving visitors their last chance to experience those holiday vibes.

First, a closing party celebration just like The White Isle. Get ready for an all-white dress code, dreamy drinks, DJs, and party tunes all night! Taking place on Friday 1st October, Fiesta Blanca is set to bring you the best of the Ibiza beach, dancing, cocktail offers and glitter face painting.

If that wasn’t enough, Fiesta De Clausura will be happening on 2nd October, Great Northern Beach Club’s very final night in the city. Expect Ibiza classics and Balearic beats from 2pm, plus drinks promos, DJs, and dancing!

If that wasn’t enough, students can grab 20% off food and drink when visiting the club. For more information visit here.

South Manny Flavaz

South Manny Flavaz may be the youngest street food vendor in Manchester, but they have big ambitions – that is to “feed the soul of the city”. While they do not currently have any student discounts on offer, they boast very affordable food offerings. From £6.50 chicken and chip meal deals to £5 chicken bites, you won’t have to break the bank when it comes to finding that perfect hangover scran. For more information visit here.
