Salford Shopping Centre has announced plans to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee on Thursday June 2nd with a fun day of free festivities for all the family.
Starting at 11am, children – and adults alike – can have their face painted to kick off proceedings and are invited to be wild, imaginative or indeed regal with their requests.
Further adding to the royal theme will be a roaming balloon-ologist creating crowns to adorn shoppers’ heads and, of course, balloon corgis as a nod to the Queen’s faithful canine friends.
During the day of jubilation, visitors should keep an eye out for magical flower fairies roaming the shopping centre handing out special Jubilee themed sweet treats before the day finishes at 4pm.
Queen Elizabeth II was only 25 when she was crowned on June 2, 1953, at London’s Westminster Abbey, following the death of her father George VI and has since gone on to be one of the world’s most adored monarchs. The Platinum Jubilee weekend will be celebrated the length and breadth of the country and around the world.
Salford Shopping Centre Manager, Nick Pitt, said, “A lot of us will be enjoying a four day weekend as part of the Jubilee Celebrations and of course we couldn’t let the occasion go by without a little celebration of our own for the community of Salford.
We have already decked out the centre with hundreds of metres of Jubilee bunting and would love to see as many of you as possible, familiar faces and new ones, to really ensure we celebrate this historic moment in style.”
