A Roaring Success! Families enjoy a fun day at Freshney Place Shopping Centre

Posted: Monday 14th May

We were delighted to entertain crowds of people this Saturday at Freshney Place Shopping Centre at our magical, Enchanted event. The family fun, which took place from 11am – 4pm in Market Square, featured an amazing lifelike dragon, which roamed the centre led by a magical princess.

Rather than scaring the children our friendly animatronic dragon greeted children and posed for photographs.

The day-long event included lots of activities, including a mythical fairy and dragon hunt, face painting and a craft workshop, where children could decorate their own fairy wings or knights shields.

Amanda Austin, Freshney Place Centre Director, said: “Freshney Place is a family friendly destination and the event provided children visiting the centre with some light hearted fun. It created a truly magical atmosphere for the afternoon and the children particularly enjoyed the craft activities we offered.”
