A cracking time at the Exchange Shopping Centre this Easter

Date published: 08 April 2022

Chocolate, lots of other yummy goodies and fun are just around the corner with plenty of Easter activities at the Rochdale Exchange Shopping Centre.

A number of Easter-themed arts and craft activities for all the family will be held on Easter Saturday (16 April) running throughout the day from 11am to 3pm.

Make your own Easter basket to hold all your chocolate or create an appropriately-themed bunny headdress using a variety of provided materials. You can even plant your very own sunflower to take home and see how tall it can grow.

Children of all ages (and their adults!) can enjoy face-painting, thrilling circus activities with Rochdale’s very own Skylight Circus Arts will be running ‘Have a Go’ circus activities, so you can join in with some plate spinning, flower sticks, scarf juggling, diablo and much more.

You can also join in with an Easter Egg Hunt around the shopping centre to win prizes including a chocolate egg for all participants and a special prize draw where two lucky winners will win £40 vouchers for local restaurants.

This year’s Easter event is brought to the town centre by the Rochdale Business Improvement District.

Paul Ambrose, Rochdale BID manager, said: “It’s great to be facilitating such a free activity that we know families will enjoy and get involved in.

“We wanted to organise a fun event that the whole family could enjoy during their visit to the centre, whether they are picking up last minute bits for Easter or just browsing the shops.

“With chocolate prizes, face painting, craft activities and a special easter egg hunt competition, it certainly will be lots of fun!

The event is free to attend and will take place at Centre Square within the Exchange Shopping Centre from 11am to 3pm on Saturday 16 April.
