Plus, shop to a backdrop of live music as our DJ spins a selection of the latest tunes. Hotel Chocolat and Ed's Easy Diner will also be sampling some tasty treats throughout the night right next to our DJ (Upper Mall outside Debenhams).

Xbox 360 will also be in town on the night with the opportunity to get hands on with FIFA 14! Plus one lucky student will have the chance to WIN an Xbox 360 250GB console, Kinect and just released FIFA 14. The team will also be handing out free Xbox merchandise

There is also the chance for one lucky student to win a supermarket sweep in BANK. All you need is a lucky golden ticket. Find out how to get involved here.
