Midsummer Place will hold a two-day celebration to mark the shopping centre’s 21st birthday, with activities, sweet treats, entertainment, games and more for visitors to enjoy on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September.
As part of their grand celebrations, Midsummer Place launched a huge giveaway at the start of September, giving one lucky person the opportunity to win £1000 in gift cards to spend at more than 20 stores within the centre.
The competition closes at midnight on Sunday 26 September, and anyone looking for a chance to win can do so by subscribing to the e-newsletter at midsummerplace.co.uk/misc/centre-info/sign-up before the closing deadline.
Throughout the birthday weekend, the centre will feature a live DJ from 12pm to 4pm Saturday and 12pm to 3pm Sunday. This will be part of the event, as hundreds of pounds of prizes being given away each day. Participants need to find the DJ, take on the challenge and see what’s in the envelope.
The birthday event will also support One Great Day, with all proceeds from the activities being donated to Henry Allen Trust and Great Ormond Street Hospital in an even split.
The rides and activities – which include the giant inflatable train-obstacle-course priced at £1 per go, hook a duck priced at £2 per go and the teacups priced at £1 per go – will be available to customers during centre opening hours (9am to 7pm Saturday and 11am to 5pm Sunday), while a variety of entertainment unfolds between 11am until 4pm on both days.
All tokens can be purchased from the token kiosk, located on the Boulevard close to Wrapchic and Hollister.
“As our big birthday approaches, the team are putting the final touches to our special event and we’re excited to welcome everyone to the centre to celebrate with us” says Shelley Peppard, General Manager at Midsummer Place.
She adds, “We hope that visitors will come along with their friends, family and neighbours to support our retailers, both brand names and independent stores alike, after what’s been a difficult 18-months for retail.”
