THE LOWRY Outlet Shopping Centre will be getting its hands dirty with its very first garden party. This green-fingered event will take place on Saturday 12 April – Monday 14 April on the Outlet’s plaza and the MediaCityUk piazza.
Expect to find everything from gardening goodies, live music, children’s entertainment, demos and a whole host of celebrity guests, including former Ground Force team member, Charlie Dimmock and Gardener’s World presenter, Carol Klein.
Children’s TV presenter, Barney Harwood and Blue Peter’s very own gardener, Chris Collins will also be getting the kids involved with hands-on workshops and demonstrations on Monday 14 April. They can learn how to create their very own edible garden, take away seeds and mini pots to plant at home and, most importantly, get elbow-deep in muck and memories.
Kids will also love the Easter egg hunt, balloon modelling and cupcake decorating. There’s certainly plenty to keep them busy.
As the warmer weather approaches, it’s also a perfect time to get your own garden spruced up. There will be a shedload of stalls where you can buy quality plants, bulbs and flowers as well as garden features and furniture.
Gardening is thirsty work, mind you. You can even build up an appetite just watching other people gardening so the artisan market, with its lovingly-crafted delights, is sure to make your mouth water.
So you can relax with a bite to eat and soak up the atmosphere at the Secret Garden Music Stage with its eclectic range of live music – from soulful singer songwriters to brass bands.
Of course, everyone is cordially invited to The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in Lowry Outlet’s Garden Wonderland. Youngsters and the young at heart can meet Alice, the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, Tweedle-Dee and of course, the Mad Hatter himself.
