Coronation celebrations at The Rock

Families enjoyed a day of truly British fun as they joined The Rock Shopping Centre in celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III.

The shopping and leisure destination held a day of free family fun on Bank Holiday Monday (8th May).

Visitors enjoyed traditional face painting, a treasure hunt around the centre and ceramic crown craft making.

The event was held in a marquee in front of The Range and also included royal stilt walkers and the king’s guards to oversee the activity.

Whilst the fun was free, donations in aid of The Rock’s partner charity were encouraged and £55 was raised for Jigsaw Bury.

Arnold Wilcox-Wood, Centre Director at The Rock, said: “We had a wonderful time celebrating this historic occasion with our customers, it was great to see so many families taking part in our treasure hunt around The Rock and those who completed the hunt were awarded with a handful of gold from the King’s treasury…of the chocolate variety! The crown craft station and face painting were busy for the whole day and our royal themed characters were hugely popular. Thank you to everyone who joined us.”
