TONIGHT: Thousands expected in Dundee city centre for student event

Thousands of new students will flood a city centre shopping centre for a murder mystery themed celebration of the new academic year.

The Overgate’s annual Student Night takes place this evening from 6.30pm, where more than 40 retailers and restaurants will offer special discounts, giveaways and prizes.

The night will also feature roaming stilt walkers and a props photobooth.

Club Tropicana and Aura Nightclub is the main host for Overgate Student Night 2018 and will provide DJs, giant games, a shot bar and official after party.

Overgate manager Malcolm Angus said: “Student Night 2017 was phenomenal with close to 8,000 students descending on the centre, and this year’s event is set to be the biggest and best yet.

“Given the huge uptake of previous years, we would urge students to arrive early and prepare for a night like no other.”
