The bunting is up, the summer holidays have officially started and free fun is on the agenda at Dalton Park!
Celebrations kick off on Friday 3rd August with ‘Summertime Shindig’ – a three day fiesta filled with sampling stations, wellness workshops, live music and style sessions as well as amazing offers and in-store events. Four dedicated zones will offer something for everyone with family activities, music, food and fashion tips filling the centre until Sunday 5th August.
The ‘Family’ zone, which will be located in Dalton Park’s garden area next to M&S, includes picnic benches, garden games and craft workshops as well as a guest appearance from the outlet shopping centre’s official purple furry mascot, Dalton.
Over on the mall, next to Gap, the ‘Lifestyle’ zone will kick off with a yoga class at 10.00am on Friday. Keen yogis can pre-book their place on the free class at https://www.dalton-park.co.uk/events/yoga-in-the-mall/. Following this there will be colour and skincare consultations complete with mini makeovers.
Peckish shoppers can head to the ‘Taste’ zone, at the central entrance near the Adidas store. Dalton Park’s eateries will be offering samples of some of their bestsellers including dough balls from Pizza Express and Iced Teavana from Starbucks. There will also be a pop up Prosecco van and Gin samples for the grown ups.
Last, but certainly not least, the ‘Live’ zone will the place to be for street theatre and bands, with three acts a day booked for free viewing pleasure.
From mischievous garden fairies hiding in giant topiary bushes to Hieronymus the hippochondriac hippo and live performances from Jazz Roots and northern acoustic soloist and singer Jasmine, the zone will be a hive of entertainment.
The fun doesn’t stop when Summertime Shindig ends, as a Ping Pong Parlour, in association with Table Tennis England, bursts into life on Monday 30th July across from Starbucks and will remain for the duration of the school holidays.
