Affinity Lancashire outlet shopping centre is inviting families to enjoy a host of Easter fun throughout April

Affinity Lancashire is celebrating Easter with a packed programme of activities to keep visitors of all ages entertained. From competitions to springtime performers, the outlet shopping centre in Fleetwood has a whole host of family-friendly fun lined up.

The April festivities will join Affinity Lancashire’s usual range of more than 40 well-known retailers to explore, offering discounts of up to 60 per cent off the RRP. And as usual, the centre’s picturesque harbour location which boasts views over Morcambe Bay, can really be embraced by younger shoppers thanks to the site’s nautical themed indoor and outdoor play area.

Here’s some of the eggcellent attractions you can expect if you’re making a family trip to Affinity Lancashire during the Easter holidays:

Join the trail for a chance to win

From Friday, April 1 through to Easter Sunday (April 17), Affinity Lancashire visitors can take part in an Easter trail for a chance to win a fantastic prize.

Solve the clues, follow the trail, and submit your entry into the submission box at the finish line to be entered into the prize draw. It’s free to enter for all ages, and the lucky winner will receive a Nintendo Switch bundle.

Enjoy some Easter crafts

Thursday, April 14 marks National Gardening Day, and this Easter Affinity Lancashire is getting ready to help you celebrate it.

Get green-fingered and creative during children’s workshops, which will focus on hands-on garden themed arts and crafts using eco-friendly materials. During the free sessions, attendees can also learn how to plant seeds that they can take home to watch as they grow.

The Easter workshops will take place on April 13-15, between 11am and 4pm each day, and will last approximately one hour.

Meet animals in the petting zoo

Make some furry friends and learn about farm animals at the Affinity Lancashire Easter petting zoo.

Allday’s Farm will be at the outlet shopping centre for three days of educational facts and fun, and you’ll have the chance to meet some exciting animals, including chickens, sheep, goats and many more. No booking is necessary and the event is free to attend on a first come, first served basis.

The petting zoo will be open to enjoy from Wednesday, April 6 until Friday, April 8 between 12pm and 4pm.

Picture-perfect performances

The Human Hedges will be at the outlet shopping centre on April 15 and April 16 from 12-4pm, greeting shoppers and providing a photo opportunity like no other.

Meanwhile if you’re looking for a perfect spot to capture the whole family and your fun day out at Affinity Lancashire, then look no further than the floral swing installation which will be on-site.

Show support while celebrating

This Easter, Affinity Lancashire is giving back to the community as it believes that no child should go without an Easter egg.

That’s why the centre is calling on visitors to help with its Easter egg collections throughout April. The eggs will be donated to local foodbank, The Pantry.

Dropping off some eggs couldn’t be simpler, as drop boxes will be located inside a number of selected stores. For a full list of stores taking part in the Easter egg collections, visit the Affinity Lancashire website
