Night life

(based on ratings in 2016)


"The nightlife in the union is really good as there are three rooms, all with different types of music. Everyone goes there so it's nice and busy. If you're not feeling the union then there are also some clubs in town like Firefly, Echoes and Revs etc. The nightlife overall isn't the wildest but it's a guaranteed good night if you're with good people."
"It is not the biggest place but I think the nightlife is satisfactory as there are various clubs and pubs in town and there is something happening every night. The students' union is also good for nightlife as there are three rooms with different music and there are various nights with different acts etc."
"It's very much a pub town with a whole host of average clubs at best. However, this issue is remedied by the cheap price of alcohol."
"The SU has a good nightlife, with a wide range of nice pubs in the town and bars with good discounts for being in a society."
"The SU puts on some nights out, but that's about it. There's been some trouble recently but outbreaks of violence are unusual."
"The students' union is great. However, the clubs in town are very small and other activities are limited."
"The students' union is one of the best in the UK. The nightlife in town is small but there is enough variety for people not to get bored unless they see nightlife as the main point of their university experience. In this case they would go to Leicester or, more commonly, Nottingham for nights out."


"A lot of pubs provide a nice student atmosphere at evenings and weekends. There are a few clubs, which are the destinations to go to later for most people."
"A few clubs in town. Small shopping centre. Small museum. Lots of green space."
"Not really much in comparison to the cities but the town has almost everything that students need."
"There are a few nightclubs you can go to, as well as also a good range of restaurants. There's a gym, a climbing wall, and paintballing nearby."
"A few clubs and restaurants for evenings. A good variety of shops for a town. A heritage railway."
"There are clubs and restaurants to go to. However, it is a town and not a city, so less than you might be used to."
"There are five main clubs: Brooklyn Bar, Echos, Firefly, and Revs. They are all reasonably priced entry (£4.00 each), and are good on different nights of the week. The prices for drinks tend to be more expensive in town than in the union."
"There's a host of bars and pubs as well as a number of clubs, enough for one every day of the week! Each club often hosts a particular night and several times per year events are arranged which provide access to several of the major clubs in one night."
"Not a lot! But it's quaint."
"Take a walk in the Queen's Park. Visit the local market or cinema. There are a few big brands available to go shopping for. Museums (Charnwood and Great Central Railway) and the theatre are also an option."
