Ladysmith set to keep families entertained for free every week throughout the summer holidays with “Go Wild Wednesdays”
the kids occupied throughout the summer holidays this year has been made a
little easier thanks to an Ashton-Under-Lyne shopping centre.
Shopping centre has launched a 5-week series of events dubbed “Go Wild
Wednesdays” as part of its Dandy Club, a free family events membership scheme
with its very own Dandy Lion mascot.
first event kicked off this Wednesday with a Deep Blue Sea theme, where
children could meet magical mermaids and pirates. Over the coming weeks,
visitors can expect to see life-size Gorillas, learn how to handle giant snakes
rescued from the wild and get involved in live conga drumming workshops.
Robinson, assistant centre manager, said: “Our launch event got off to a fantastic
start and I am confident the rest of the Go Wild activities will be a huge hit
“We pride ourselves on providing free activities and
experiences that offer something a little bit different for families during the
school holidays, which can end up being quite an expensive time for parents.
not every day you see a life-size gorilla roaming the streets of Ashton, so I
am really looking forward to welcoming everyone throughout the 5-week event
programme and seeing their reactions to our unique entertainment.”
will be transformed into a hub of activity every Wednesday from now until
August 28 and everything is completely free to attend.
