What the papers say.....

Summer Fun Festival Coming to Swindon Town Centre


The Brunel Shopping Centre, in Swindon Town Centre, has unveiled a summer of free entertainment for children and families throughout the school holidays.


Every Wednesday, between 26 July and the end of August, there will be free seaside-themed activities at the centre as part of the Summer Fun Festival.  Activities will include stories, a puppet show, competitions, sand sculpture and a visit by popular children’s character SpongeBob SquarePants.


SpongeBob SquarePants kicks off the free summer entertainment programme.  On Wednesday 26 July he will be meeting children at intervals between 11am and 3pm and can be found in The Brunel Arcade, on the ground floor, near to That’s Entertainment.


A week later, on Wednesday 2 August, five tonnes of sand will be transformed into a sand sculpture and shoppers will be able to watch its creation unfold.  The sand sculpture will remain in place for the following two weeks.


Wednesday 9th August is Shed of Seaside Stories.  Situated in The Brunel Plaza, upstairs between Boots and Marks & Spencer storytellers will entertain children.  This will be followed by seaside craft activity on 16 August and a Pirate Puppet Show on 23 August.  All activities will be located on the upper level of The Brunel Plaza, between M&S and Boots.  On 30 August The Last Resort, a quirky mix of characters in an eccentric beach front inhabited by a caricaturist, fortune teller, beach shop, tattoo parlor, photographer and monkey and an elusive chip shop, will take up residence on the ground floor of Brunel Plaza between 11am and 4pm. 


Jane Stewart, Deputy Manager at The Brunel said: “The Summer Fun festival will provide free entertainment for children and families every week of the long school holidays.  It is being held every Wednesday and we hope that people will return each week to see what’s on offer.  There’s something for everyone.  There’s no need to book, just come along and join in the fun.”
