Lowry Outlet MediaCityUK will transform into a magical spring wonderland this Easter with free entertainment for all the family including hidden spring creatures, arts and crafts and an Easter-themed indoor market.
Launching on Saturday 1st April until Monday 17th April, Lowry Outlet’s Spring Discoveries event will feature a spring country garden theme, complete with an 8ft oak tree, real life ‘hedge’ people, face painting, spring characters and much more.
Over the Easter weekend (Friday 14th April – Monday 17th April), customers will be tempted by tasty treats at an Easter-themed indoor market, showcasing everything from handmade chocolates to unusual chocolate creations and crafts.
Lowry Outlet Centre Manager Kelly Hurst, said: “What a fantastic event to kick start spring, and the Easter holiday – there is so much to see and do over these two weeks, at Lowry Outlet, that families will want to come back time and time again. From craft making to chocolates and magical entertainment, Spring Discoveries offers the perfect family day out over the Easter holidays - and even better, it’s free to visit!”
Spring Discoveries activities will run between 1 April and 17 April as follows:
· Spring Garden– located outside Clarks, this area offers grassed seating, with chairs and seats made from ‘bushes’. Face painters will be on hand to transform little ones in to spring flowers, and spring characters will offer entertainment to those nearby. On selected days there will be a balloon artist creating flowers and headbands in this area too.
· Spring Country Garden – located outside of Cuppa Coffee, this garden wonderland will feature artificial grass surrounded by a picket fence and spring flowers. There will be a grand 8ft oak tree, and benches for families to sit back and enjoy the sounds of birdsong. Look out for the hidden spring animals and...a magical unicorn too!
· Magical story characters will make an appearance around the centre at intervals throughout the day, and a caricaturist will draw pictures of visitors, on a floral background to take home and frame. There will also be a visit from the ‘hedge’ people – can you spot the ‘hedges’, before they come to life and surprise you!
