Peter Rabbit™ to wish visitors a ‘hoppy’ Easter at The Glades

Superstar bunny will be right ‘hare’ in Bromley

The Glades Shopping Centre - in partnership with Your Bromley - is rolling out the red carpet for VIB (Very Important Bunny) guest, Peter Rabbit, who will be making an ‘eggstra’ special appearance at the Little Explorers kids’ club this Easter break.

To celebrate Easter, Peter Rabbit will be hopping into The Glades on Thursday 12 April at the Little Explorers kids’ club for story time sessions - led by a narrator - at intervals between 10am and 3pm. Visitors to the club can also enjoy a day of face painting, colouring and other fun-filled festivities.

All activities are free, but tickets must be booked at www.theglades.co.uk/events/eggciting to join the brilliant bunny for story time. The event will take place on the lower mall central atrium.

Kate Miller, general manager of The Glades, ‘egg-spressed’ her excitement and said it would be a cracking day out for the family. “With Easter just around the corner, a visit from everyone’s favourite bunny rabbit is definitely warranted.

“We are looking forward to welcoming Peter to the centre as he has so many fans in the town,” said Kate. “This will be a great treat for our littlest Bromley shoppers and a lovely opportunity for families to spend some quality time together enjoying all the activities.”

Other free Easter fun not to be ‘egg-nored’ includes the annual Your Bromley, ‘Hop Around Bromley’, town centre trail from Friday 30 March until Sunday 8 April, where a basketful of prizes can be won. Shoppers can collect an entry form at the pop-up desk on the upper mall near Marks and Spencer, or download a copy from www.yourbromley.com/eggciting, for a chance to find ten Easter bunnies hidden around Bromley.

Successful egg hunters can return completed entry forms to the desk by 5pm on Sunday 8 April to receive a free Peter Rabbit gift and be automatically entered into a competition to win either a £50 Glades gift card, or a year’s junior membership for Mytime Active.

From Monday 9 April until Friday 13 April (excluding Thursday 12 April), shoppers will be able to enjoy an English country garden, which will be springing up on the lower mall near Marks and Spencer. Free face painting and colouring activities will be available, as well as a giant teacup and saucer to pose in and super-sized vegetables to take snaps with. A tasty treat of a £50 Hotel Chocolat gift card will be awarded for the best photo.
