Summer Saturday Launch - a Roaring Success!

Summer Saturday Launch - a Roaring Success!


Summer got off to a scorching start at Idlewells on Saturday 26th July, with the launch of our ‘6 Week Summer Saturday Giveaway’.

Hundreds of entries into our weekly prize draw were received – each person having shown a receipt from Idlewells stores or Indoor Market stalls to qualify – and our first ever Glitz Loom School was completely booked up!

The Gulliver’s Kingdom team with Leonard the Lion were face painting for free - until the paints melted in the heat - and our two glamorous stilt walkers and Mansfield 103.2 added an extra bit of sparkle to the day.

“It was great to see the centre buzzing, and we’re looking forward to another 5 weeks of the same.” said Chloe O’Donnell, Assistant Manager at Idlewells.

The winner of week one’s prize was 70 year old Maureen Clipston (pictured below with Chloe), who was delighted, stating that she had never won a prize in her life.

Our Summer Saturday Giveaway is on every Saturday, with free workshops, face painting and our Family Days Out competition, until 30th August – when our star prize of a family Merlin Annual Pass, providing 12 months’ free entry into 31 of the UK’s biggest attractions, will be up for grabs. For full details click here.
