Merry Christmas from Salford Shopping Centre

18th December 2015

It’s been a busy year for the shopping centre with the introduction of new retailers, the hosting of various seasonal events and a plethora of promotions giving shoppers the chance to win great prizes, both in-store and online!

During the summer we had a variety of events at the centre. This included our Reach New Heights day where an 18ft double-sided climbing wall was erected, giving children and adults the opportunity to rock climb for free. Trained instructors were on hand to offer advice and help with the climbing effort.



We also had a Pirate Craft Workshop in the centre, providing some swashbuckling adventure for children. The Salford Galleon Ship dropped anchor and allowed kiddies to make pirate hats, eye patches, flags and wooden treasure chests.

Creepy Critters!

Ranger Rob also visited, bringing some animal antics to our malls. A variety of slithering snakes, lithe lizards and mini monsters were on display, along with the chance to get up close and personal to these creepy critters!

In October we hosted a Sinister Snaps event at the centre, where a free spooktacular Haunted House gave children the chance to be transformed into marvellous monsters and gruesome ghouls, thanks to fiendish face painters and a devilish dress up crew. Pictures from the Sinister Snap Booth were then uploaded to our Facebook page for followers to vote for their favourite. The winner bagged £100!

Let it Snow

At the end of November, hundreds flocked to the centre for our Christmas Lights Switch On. The centre and surrounding area was filled with festive sparkle! The event, held in association with KEY 103, included performances from local singers and the Scots Guard Association Pipe Band. The excitement culminated with the lights being turned on by The Snow Queen and friends!


This Saturday (19th December), we’ve got a Giant Snow Globe at the shopping centre where families can be part of a winter wonderland! Participants will be given a polaroid picture of their visit to take home and keep and all photos will be uploaded to our Facebook page.
