Gok Wan to headline St George’s student shopping event

ShopFest, the St George’s Shopping Centre student event, has confirmed
fashionista, presenter and personality, Gok Wan, as its headline act.

The award-winning TV presenter and fashion expert will be guest of honour and play
a live DJ set at the tenth annual event on Tuesday, October 3 from 6pm-9pm.

Renowned for his work in the fashion field, Gok’s name is synonymous with offering
straightforward fashion advice and boosting confidence. His personal charm has
enabled him to build a reputation as one of the UK’s most loved personalities.

Many of Gok’s fashion and style TV series have been aired worldwide, making him
internationally recognisable.

In addition to playing his DJ set, Gok will complete a special meet and greet and
hand over £1,000 to one lucky student shopper.

Andrew Stringer, centre manager at St George’s Shopping Centre, said: “The event
is always a firm favourite in the calendar, offering students the chance to get savvy
with their spending – taking advantage of the massive discounts, while making the
most of the freebies and competitions on offer on the night.


“With Gok on board for our tenth annual event, and of course the chance to win
£1,000, this year’s ShopFest is set to be an unrivalled experience. It’ll make a real
buzz in the city.”

Fresh from filming, with two hit-shows running on TV, Gok has confirmed his
excitement in heading the St George’s event, saying: ‘‘I’m really looking forward to
coming to ShopFest and meeting loads of the city’s fab students. I can’t wait to play
some absolute classics for you and have a great time together.”

ShopFest is expected to attract thousands of student shoppers from across the
North West, with retailers offering special discounts to attendees in addition to live
music, celebrity guests, competitions and freebies.

To attend the event and enter the competition, registration must be done prior to the
event. Tickets are free of charge to students and available from
