On Saturday 26th March families visiting Victorian Arcade Shopping Centre in Walsall were treated to a special visit from the one and only Peppa Pig alongside a host of other farmyard friends.
Throughout the day, in celebration of the Easter weekend, the cheeky little piggy made personal appearances to meet with children and pose for photos.
Furthermore, the shopping arcade hosted a free animal farm giving children the opportunity to get up close with a variety of animals such as pygmy goats, lambs, piglets and rabbits. Youngsters were also able to learn more about their farmyard friends thanks to the animal specialists that were on hand to answer any questions and offer advice to children on how to care for the animals.
Darren Griffiths, Senior Regional Facilities Manager of GBR Phoenix Beard, owners of the shopping centre, commented:
"Our Easter event was a great success and it was wonderful to see the centre so busy with local families enjoying the free entertainment. Peppa Pig was incredibly popular with the children and the animal farm provided a great opportunity for youngsters to learn more about their farmyard friends. We pride ourselves on being a shopping centre for the local community so we were delighted to be able to offer this free event for our loyal shoppers and local residents. I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend."
