Noah’s Arc to visit arc shopping centre every Monday...

Throughout the school summer holiday’s shoppers will get the chance to meet lots of animals as Noah’s Arc will be stopping of at arc shopping centre every Monday. Families are invited to visit the centre each week to meet the animals and the entertainment is completely free. There will be a mixture of famous children’s characters, fun and interactive entertainers, and even some real ones that children can get up close and personal with to learn all about them.

The first visitor to arrive will be the mischievous Peter Rabbit™ who will be visiting the centre on Monday the 25th July. Peter is no ordinary rabbit; he is suited and booted in a blue jacket and shoes but far from a well behaved! His brave and courageous nature means he is always looking for an adventure and is sure to find one in arc shopping centre. He’ll be meeting fans and posing for photographs in Charter Square at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Peter Rabbit will also appear during story time sessions, led by a narrator, in arc’s Waterstones store at 12pm and 2pm.

As well as the chance to meet the animals, visitors will also be able to win a £50 shopping spree. Shoppers can put their face in the hole to become one of Noah’s animals, those who snap a photo and share it on the shopping centre’s Facebook page will be in with a chance of winning the prize.

Colin Roberts is the centre manager at arc shopping centre, he said; “We are excited about our Noah’s Arc line-up, we really wanted to host some fun events that can be really enjoyed by the whole family. Peter Rabbit is an iconic character whose adventures cross generations, we’re sure he’ll be loved by all kids, young and old!”
