Mum’s the word at The Rock this Mother’s Day

The Rock is pulling out all the stops to make sure mums are the centre of attention this Mother’s Day.

We have teamed up with Tower FM for a day of free family fun at the centre on Saturday 10th March 2018 – including voucher giveaways, a sunflower planting station and a free pamper zone.

Listeners to the radio station who register online at  have a chance of winning £50 in vouchers to spend at The Rock if they’re called back and answer the phone with ‘Mum’s the word’.

They’ll then be invited to the centre to collect their voucher, where they can take a chance on The Rock’s Pots of Love game – a higher or lower game, where shoppers guess if the next plant is higher or lower than the previous one – where they’ll have a chance of walking away with up to £250 to spend at The Rock.

The Pots of Love game will also be open to shoppers visiting on the day with a range of spot prizes and vouchers up for grabs.

Meanwhile from 11am-3pm there’ll be a free sunflower planting station where children can plant a sunflower and write a special message on the pot before taking it home for mum for Mothering Sunday.

Running at the same time is a free pamper zone for mums – there’ll be a nail station and beauty station with free treatments being offered throughout the day, on a first come, first served basis.

Arnold Wilcox-Wood, Centre Director at The Rock, said: “This Mother’s Day weekend we really want to make mums feel special so we hope they’ll visit to enjoy our pamper station and that the children enjoy planting a sunflower to take home. This free activity is open to all our shoppers and is our way of helping them celebrate the important women in their lives.

“Plus, The Rock is the perfect shopping destination to buy your mum that something special or take her out for a meal in one of our many restaurants.”

Lucky couple win Valentine’s trip to Paris

A lucky couple got more than they bargained for when they went shopping at The Rock  – by walking away with a trip to Paris.

Peter and Jenny Seal, from Edenfield, bagged the romantic trip to the city of love after taking part in the shopping and leisure destination’s ‘Love is in the Air’ competition.

Throughout the day on Saturday (10th February), shoppers were invited to the ‘Love Booth’ in pairs, where one person answered a series of questions and how many they answered correctly determined how long the second person spent in the booth where the aim was to grab the golden ticket.

Anyone who grabbed a golden ticket was entered into the draw and invited back to the draw being made at the end of the event.

The couple, who have two children, were chosen at random and were met by applause by the other finalists when the draw was made.  Peter said: “I’m delighted!” And Jenny added: “I’ve never been to Paris, I’ve always wanted to go. I can’t believe we won.”

A host of other prizes were given away throughout the day and shoppers were also treated to bags of chocolate hearts handed out by The Rock’s stilt walking King and Queen of Hearts.

Arnold Wilcox-Wood, Centre Director at The Rock, said: “Love was certainly in the air at The Rock this weekend – it was wonderful to see so many visitors having fun in the competition and enjoying the treats being handed out by our stilt walkers. There’s still a couple of days to go until Valentine’s Day so if you’re after last minute gifts, outfits or the perfect place for a date, we’ve got you covered.”
