Students Hit Highcross

More than 11,000 students flocked to Highcross Leicester for the centre’s second annual Student Lock In event, which took place recently.

The event, which attracted students from across the county’s universities and colleges, was hosted in partnership with the O2 Academy Leicester and Total Students and served to welcome new and existing students to Leicester for the autumn semester.

Almost 60 retailers and restaurants, as well as Highcross’ Cinema de Lux, took part in the two-hour event and we went along to see what all the fuss was about! Did we snap you while we were out and about?
