Shopping centre shines a light on Bury mums

Mums from across Bury and beyond were the focus of a special celebration at The Rock.

We played host to our very own ‘Museum of Mum’ on the run up to Mother’s Day.

The glitzy installation shone a spotlight on more than 70 mums from the town as images shared by families through a social media competition were displayed on screens to celebrate Bury mums and all that they do.

The museum, which was in front of The Range, also showcased the must-have Mother’s Day gifts from the centre’s retailers, with displays from brands including Primark, M&S, Lush and Pandora.

On Saturday (9th March) the activation was brought to life by an event team who hosted a Mother’s Day gameshow with dozens of giveaways

Prizes including vouchers, fragrances and sweet treats were given away to more than 100 lucky winners.

The Rock’s partner charity, Liv’s Trust, also offered Mother’s Day card craft making to visitors.

Arnold Wilcox-Wood, Centre Director at The Rock, said: “Our Museum of Mum has been a hugely exciting activation and it’s been so lovely to see families coming to see the photos of their mums on display. We’re also really pleased our retailers got on board and helped us to showcase the top Mother’s Day gifting ideas. The final highlight was the giveaways at Saturday’s event – we were delighted to spread joy and gifts with our visitors.”
