Fun for all the family: Pic and Mix it up at this Selfridges kids festival


Selfridges at intu Trafford has planned five days of family fun to help you keep the kids entertained over the summer holidays.

Between 29th August and 2nd September, Selfridges is inviting families to feel the spirit of summer at their Pic & Mix festival with a packed roster of entertainment for everyone to enjoy.

Whether they love dressing up, making slime, want to learn some circus tricks or have a boogie in a silent disco, there’s plenty to pick and choose from.

Scoop up your little ones and take them down for the chance to meet Catboy and Owlette from PJ Masks and to transform into their favourite L.O.L. Surprise character for the day between 9am and 6pm on 1st and 2nd September. Tickets are free but, being the UK’s number one collectable, booking is essential.

The night-time superhero duo Catboy and Owlette will be appearing at intervals throughout the day so little shoppers can come along, meet their favourite character and snap some pictures of this extraordinary encounter.

They’ll also have the chance to get a boogie on in Selfridges kids-friendly Rave-a-Roo silent disco on Friday 31st. Stepping out of its legendary Ministry of Sound home in London, Rave-a-Roo will be presenting the ultimate family silent disco experience in-store.

Hosted by Rave-a-Roo’s very own Jungle Jane, families can show off their best dance moves before a spectacular confetti finale. Tickets are £10 and are fully redeemable against a purchase in Kids & Toys on the day.

If your child fancies running off and joining the circus, why not give them a taste of the weird and wonderful at The Circus House event on Thursday 30th?

Presented in partnership with The Lowry, families are invited to get together and learn from the experts at The Circus House. Learn how to master circus skills such as juggling, Diablo and plate spinning. You can also book your family Acrobalance session where you will be able to learn some fun family balances and human pyramid style tricks.

You can all take part in baby sensory development classes and family photo sessions on 1st and 2nd, plus there will be opportunities for face painting and glitter hair braiding with The Gypsy Shrine.

On the opposite end of the scale, there will also be Nickelodeon Slime workshops where you can watch the kids make a good mess together in a special adult supervision area before taking home their own pot of Nickelodeon slime.

The series of events are geared to suit the whole family, so if you fancy having a go at anything with them there’s nothing to stop you.
