AS the sun begins to shine and the school holidays start, Mell Square presents a summer of fun for all the family, with a series of free colour-themed family fun days.
For five Thursdays this summer, the Square will be packed with children’s activities, exciting rides, family entertainment, great offers from the stores, and Mell Square will be inviting children to come dressed in the colour of the day.
Summer fun kicks off with Red Day on Thursday, July 30, where there will be exciting appearances from the Pinxton Puppets, and Freddie the Fire Engine, who will be entertaining the children with fun and foam, and Professor Crump who will be dabbling in some brilliant balloon modelling.
Paul Round, centre manager at Mell Square shopping centre, said: “We are delighted to welcome everyone to our family summer fun days. Whether you are looking for entertainment, creative activities, or to meet some brilliant characters during the summer holiday, then pop down to Mell Square, and enjoy some fun in the sun.”
Thursday, August 6 is Green Day, where crowds will be wowed with brilliant bugs, snakes, and spiders from Animal Antics, and Chester Amazing, will be conjuring up some magnificent magic for all the family to enjoy.
Gandolph the Great will be paying a visit on Thursday, August 13, where children can join in on White Day, while enjoying the amazing tails from The Storyteller.
Parents can enjoy a cool iced coffee, a wander around the shops, or even try their hand at painting ceramics.
Be amazed on Thursday, August 20 by the Purple Wizard, meet Barney the Dinosaur, or go round in circles on the mini wheel on Purple Day. Finally, Thursday, August 27 is Rainbow Day, where children can come dressed in all the bright colours of the rainbow and jump on the trampoline, slide down the helter skelter, and meet Charlie, the clown.
