Some students held a rave in a Greggs last night
Greggs transformed one of its Birmingham stores into a nightclub last night and became the talk of the campus after staging a rave.
The party followed a Facebook plea from Nikki Gardner (21), a University of Birmingham student, asking to throw a ‘Welcome back to Uni’ party for pals at her local shop.
Nikki posted; “Greggs – Any chance of having a party in your shop to get all my friends back together since coming back to Uni?’
The food-on-the go retailer responded saying ‘Can we come?’ and took on the challenge transforming its shop into a fully Greggs-ified nightclub.
A 3-hour transformation saw the shop at Birmingham’s 41 High Street, kitted out with a sound system, club lighting plus inflatable neon doughnuts and pizza slices.
Ahead of the party, Nikki, an International Relations Student, was granted a VIP guest list for her friends to gain entry to the ‘one night only’ pop-up club.
Complimentary sausage rolls and steak bakes were handed out.
Clubbers partied to sets from DJ Dan Kelly and The University’s DJ society, Mix Soc.
Some bangers were dropped and we’re not just talking about the sausage rolls (sorry);
Social media posts bearing the hashtag #MinistryofGreggs caused intrigue on social media feeds and have given a glimpse inside the private party.
