Traditionally, red envelopes are gifted between family and friends on Lunar New Year, these are filled with money and symbolise wishes and good luck for the year ahead. Well, our shoppers certainly felt lucky when they opened envelopes to find discounts and vouchers for their shopping trip.

Hanging above in the trees were dozens of red lanterns and under the aerial installation our traditional Chinese Lion roamed the mall, meeting, greeting and taking photos with guests. It’s bright and colourful oranges and yellows stood out against the winter backdrop, creating a real show stopper and encouraging guests and retailers to interact with and celebrate the Lunar New Year no matter their background.

Santa’s

Ski School

Let’s Hit The Slopes….

 

Amidst the glistening snow-capped mountains of the North Pole, Santa’s Ski School recently wrapped up its most enchanting season yet, captivating little wannabe-skiers with an unforgettable experience filled with laughter, learning, and festive magic.

From the moment children arrived at our interactive event, they were greeted by the whimsical charm of Santa’s Ski School, where bespoke ski props awaited their eager hands. Donning their goggles and clutching their ski poles, they embarked on an exhilarating journey led by none other than Santa himself and his merry band of elves.

The highlight of the event was an interactive workshop like no other, where children slalomed through a winter wonderland displayed on a giant screen. Amidst gingerbread men and candy canes, they giggled and cheered as they dodged snowballs hurled by the mischievous abominable snowman. With every twist and turn, they honed their skiing skills under the guidance of Santa and his skilled elves, their laughter echoing through the shopping centre.

But Santa’s Ski School wasn’t just about thrills and spills—it was about inclusivity and accessibility for all too. Each morning, special SEND sessions were held, offering a reduced sensory experience tailored to the unique needs of every child. From calming lights to gentle music, every detail was carefully crafted to ensure a welcoming environment for all.For those who required it, a wheelchair-accessible sleigh awaited, ensuring that every child could partake in the snowy adventures with ease. Pre-event, a SEND-friendly introductory video and tour also provided a glimpse into the magic awaiting them, easing any anxieties and setting the stage for an unforgettable experience.

As the event came to a close, rosy-cheeked and beaming with joy, children bid farewell to Santa and his merry crew with brand new ski skills all learnt alongside fellow frosty adventurers.

Where will Santa’s Ski Season take him in 2024?

 

 

The Eden Eco Elves

– Christmas Treecycle

The most sustainable Christmas grotto you ever did see and where children’s dreams sprouted with joy!

 

For Christmas 2023, we introduced a brand-new all sustainable Christmas experience at Eden, the Christmas treecycle. Where every part of the grotto build, the Christmas presents, the costumes and even the decorations were recycled, up cycled or second hand. Not a bit of single use plastic in sight!
The journey started with a story from Mrs Claus, telling stories of how sustainable Santa and the elves are at the North Pole!
Children picked a magic festive bean and with the help of Mrs Claus and the Eco Elves, they popped their bean into a pot and into our magic Christmas tree machine. Whizz. Pop. Bang! They pulled the lever and the magic bean transformed into a baby real Christmas tree. Children then used recycled crafting materials to make their own decorations for their tree.
Children were given all the know-how on how to plant their baby Christmas trees after the festive season to give them their second life or bring their baby trees back to the grotto (to be replanted at the Xmas tree farm) in January in exchange for exclusive retailer offers.
An extra eco-Christmas experience that was greener than the grinch and super sustainable in every way.
The Christmas treecycle delivered results that had all other Christmas grottos green with envy:
🌲 We sold a whopping 2245 tickets and the last week of opening was fully booked every day
🌲 The crews costumes were 100% created and stitched with all Recycled second use shirts, skirts and old material
🌲 No to artificial! The Christmas experience entrance wreath design was created from 100% all natural pampas and real Christmas tree.
🌲 Over 10,000 recycled Xmas decorations were made for the mini trees
🌲 The eco-experience generated over £5k income.
🌲 Every festive tree that didn’t get used (plus over 30 Christmas trees that children returned in January) were re-planted this month at a Welsh Christmas tree farm, so all ready to dig up and re-use for Xmas ‘24. Hurrah!

 

 

Who Let

The Dogs Out

Over the Summer we combined two of our favourite things. Ice Cream and Dogs.

Join us on the thrilling journey we took this Summer across the United Kingdom, from the picturesque tip of Scotland to the scenic depths of England. Our collaboration with Pets at Home was nothing short of paw some as we embarked on a captivating Summer brand tour.

Picture this: our vibrant, fully branded ice cream van pulled up at ten tour locations where we served up over 3000 delicious doggy ice creams, leaving tails wagging with joy. Not to mention, our generosity knew no bounds as we showered attendees with a treasure trove of Pets at Home bounceback vouchers.

But wait, there’s more! Our furry friends weren’t the only ones reveling in the fun. Pups brought along their beloved hoomans, who seized the opportunity to discover how to keep their four-legged companions safe under the sun’s warm embrace. What’s more, they eagerly jumped on board the Pets at Home loyalty scheme bandwagon, opening a world of exciting possibilities for pet lovers and their adorable sidekicks.

We’re committed to delivering even more tail-waggingly unforgettable tours for our wonderful clients.

Clothes Swap Shop –

Sustainably Fashionable

Swap, Recycle, Donate…..

A whopping £12 billion worth of clothing goes into landfill each year and in the UK we buy more items of clothing per person than any other country in Europe, which made the centre want to team up with Love Not Landfill to help fast fashion lovers buy second-hand, swap, recycle and give to charity.

Clothes Swap Shop was launched on a Saturday this Spring. We designed and built a bespoke pop-up clothes shop swap set, which was all reclaimed, recycled or repurposed to tie in with the big sustainable theme.

A super simple and stylish footfall and dwell driving concept, which saw a whopping 780 clothes, shoes and accessories donated and swapped and all within 5 hours. What a sustainable success thats now going to be a permanent pop up every season this year.Want more details or some help getting something like this set up at your shopping space or retail place? We’re ready and waiting to get fashionably green with you.
