Some Students Actually Held A Rave in Greggs, And It Looked Amazing
Greggs is the destination for a tasty pastry, coffee, or Belgian bun on the go. It’s cheap, it’s cheerful, and the whole shop smells deliciously golden (golden doesn’t actually have a smell but if it did I’m pretty sure it would smell like Greggs).
But, as some students in Birmingham proved, Greggs is not just a place to go in order to get your sausage roll fix.
Students in Birmingham actually transformed their local Greggs into a club and proceeded to hold a rave there. Party. Goals.
The ‘secret student party’ was kicked off by Nikki Gardner, a University of Birmingham student, who decided to throw a ‘Welcome back to Uni’ bash for her friends, and – surprisingly – Greggs agreed to the whole hoopla.
Proving that their service skills aren’t the only things that are lightening quick, Greggs decked out their shop with club lighting, a sound system, and even a glitter canon in an impressive three hour turn around.
What perhaps made the rave so Greggs-esque were the inflatable neon doughnuts and pizza slices that were being carted around the party.
While there were no sausage roll inflatable toys, the iconic snacks were being handed out for free to ravers along with steak bakes, thus solving the whole post-night out food dilemma. No need to cut the night short when you get your carby cravings; Greggs were right there to provide a dance-and-munch solution.
As you can imagine, social media was going wild for the event, with the hastag #MinistryofGreggs making the rounds.

What this rave proves is that fast food convenience shops are on our side. Why stop with Greggs! What about mosh pit in McDonald’s or a boozy bash in KFC?
Props to the guy dressed as a pasty.
