Chocs Away!

31st March 2016

With plenty of sweet treats and egg-citing gadgets, Salford Shopping Centre was a one-stop-shop for Easter goodies this year. And with an array of in-store promotions and giveaways, there were lots of ways to ensure Salford residents feathered their nests during March.

Crafty Kids

Salford Shopping Centre hosted a FREE Easter Egg Decorating Workshop on Saturday 26th March from 10am to 3pm. Demonstrating a variety of techniques, little ones could decorate chocolate eggs with icing pens, sprinkles and sweets.

The workshop provided the perfect opportunity for children, over the age of 3, to create tasty works of art just in time for Easter Sunday. All materials were provided and supervision and guidance was given on the day to help with the creative process.

It was great to see lots of happy families turning out to get crafty. All the tables at the workshop were filled, with over 200 children taking part in the activities! Tots produced some tasty creations and the event proved to be a great opportunity for the ‘grown ups’ to spend quality time with them.

Alongside the workshop, the centre ran a Facebook competition encouraging people to like and share a graphic publicising the event, with the chance to win £50 to spend at the centre.

A Cracking Success!

Overall the event was a huge success, with all feedback forms given out on the day unanimous in their positive comments.

“We were over the moon with the attendance on the day of our Easter event and the interest in our associated social media competition. We look forward to hosting similar events and promotions at the shopping centre throughout the year.”
