wagamama katsu curry

wagamama is offering FREE Katsu curry to university students who have graduated and been unable to celebrate the big day.

The pan Asian restaurant will offer their iconic dish free of charge to a limited number of graduates across twenty of their restaurants.

The giveaway is to celebrate the achievement of graduates who have spent the majority of their university education in some form of lockdown restriction due to the pandemic.

The past eighteen months has not been easy for students with graduation ceremonies cancelled or postponed up and down the country. So many dedicated students everywhere are set to miss out on this all important celebration.

So wagamama has decided to host the two day katsu giveaway on July 21 and 22 at selected locations across the uk as a way of saying con-katsu-lations!

wagamama wants to celebrate the achievements of these students by offering the first 20 students through the doors a katsu (40 in total across the 2 days). All you need to do is prove you are a student.

Graduation may be off but the summer is on and to help students kick start their summer of celebrations wagamama will invite the lucky students in for the katsu giveaway. It’s totally free, no catch, no conditions jut first come first served!

Sita Dobbs, Senior Regional Marketing Manager, said: “At wagamama we’ve worked to support our loyal student fanbase throughout the pandemic.

In 2020 we launched our ‘noodle union’, which saw student Sunday DJ events take place in our restaurants across the UK, our wok from home series with a special wok from halls episode saw our Executive Head Chef Steven Mangleshot cook off some of our most iconic dishes on instagram and we partnered with the likes of Deliveroo and Unidays to bring our wagamama bowls to student halls of residences.

We know students have had a particularly tough time this last year, with lockdowns and virtual learning, student mental health has suffered.

We worked with student mental health ambassador Ben West to bring all important open and honest conversations to our social channels, inviting student voices to talk through their thoughts and apprehensions in our Conversations off Campus instagram series, which can be streamed on our wagamama_uk channel.

We want to continue celebrating our student’s achievements across 2021 and beyond and we can’t wait to welcome our lucky students in for a katsu this week!”
