Free fun February lined up at The Mall Blackburn

The Mall Blackburn is promising a week of crafty free fun during the school half term holiday!

From Saturday the 16th until Sunday 24th February there will be something to suit the artistic taste of every little shopper including fairy-tale puppets, knights and dragons key-rings, glitter globes and superhero scratch art!

All activities are free of charge, with an optional donation to The Mall’s current charity of the year Theo’s Warriors, which supports children and their families through a cancer diagnosis and beyond.

Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “While the days are getting noticeably longer the weather is still mostly miserable and the February half term holidays can pose a real problem to parents and carers looking to keep the kids entertained.

“As ever, all our events are free and children can take their creations home with them.

“We look forward to seeing children enjoying themselves throughout the holidays!”

The free sessions will take place between 11.00am and 4.00pm in Victoria Court outside Burger King.

The line up of exciting activities is as follows:

Saturday 16th – Knight and dragon key-rings
