Get close and personal with creepy crawlies...

Things get creepy at arc on Monday 22 nd August as Noah’s Arc visits arc shopping centre for the final time this summer. This week he is bringing reptiles and creepy crawlies to Charter Square, so shoppers can learn all about them and if they are brave enough they can even hold them.

As well as the opportunity to learn about the mini beasts there will also be a free craft workshop where little ones can make their very own snake to take home afterwards. The workshop will run in Charter Square from 11am - 3pm.

The free creepy crawly educational experience is the final event in the shopping centre’s Noah’s Arc series of events.

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; “Every Monday had been such a blast, I want to thank all the families that have visited our Noah’s Arc events and hope that you’ve all enjoyed it. This final event is a great way to bring the activities to a close, kids will absolutely love the opportunity to get up close to these mini beasts! ”
