A fashion and beauty showcase proved to be a huge hit with shoppers visiting The Rock.
We hosted our six day long Rock Your Summer Look event in a large marquee in St John’s Square from May 29th until June 3rd.
It included a Pamper Zone running from Tuesday to Friday where hundreds of shoppers made the most of free treatments including manicures, make-up, hair styling and eyebrow shaping. There was also a Gents’ Grooming Chair with free beard, nose hair, ear hair and eyebrow trimming.
We asked for donations to be made to our current partner charity, The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity and over four days more than £570 was raised.
The week culminated with a series of fashion shows taking place throughout Friday, Saturday and Sunday where models showcased the hottest summer looks for women, men and children
There was also entertainment provided by The Roc Squad hip-hop dance group and the Carol Godby Theatre Workshop.
Arnold Wilcox-Wood, centre director of The Rock, said: “Our fashion and beauty event had a revamp for this year with more activity, a new name and a new look and we’re thrilled at how popular it has proved to be with our shoppers.
“Our Pamper Zone was busy every day and the feedback from our visitors has been extremely positive. The fun carried on into the weekend with a packed agenda of fashion shows and dance performances. We already can’t wait for next year’s event.”
