Get ready to hop into Springtime fun at the Trafford Centre

Looking for a family-friendly activity this spring? The Trafford Centre has you covered!

From 1st April to 4th June, you can enjoy the Spring Escape outside the Great Hall, featuring vintage fairground rides and attractions for all ages, sweet treats, and delicious food.

Visitors can look forward to thrilling rides like the Starflyer, Rock Rage, Waveswinger, and Funhouse. And for those who prefer to stay grounded, there’s the Waterballs, a giant inflatable clown, and much more to enjoy.

Indulge your taste buds with delectable food options, including doughnuts, crepes, ice cream, burgers, coffees, and soft drinks.

But that’s not all, there are more exciting activities for children aged 4 and above.

The Selfridges Spring-Time Kids Craft Workshop, led by Pop Up & Play, is available on the 12th and 13th of April. The workshop will last for an hour and will feature spring-themed crafts that children can take home. Let your child’s creativity run free this half term with this fun and engaging activity.

Another fantastic option for children is the YO! Sushi School at Selfridges.

Children can learn how to make three kinds of sushi, guided by YO!’s kitchen crew. They can also take home their very own Mini Ninja certificate at the end of the class.

From 3rd to 14th April, kids eat free from Monday to Friday. This is a great way to introduce children to the culinary arts and give them a unique and memorable experience.
