Trip down memory lane with Lakeside

TO MARK Lakeside’s 21st Birthday, they are planning a trip down memory lane with our exhibition of 21 feel-good years. Pop down to the central atrium between 7th and 22nd May and join us as we celebrate 21 great years of shopping, leisure and dining at Lakeside.

Shoppers have been sharing their memories and photographs over the past few months and the funniest, strangest and most heart-warming ones will take pride of place in the exhibition.

There will be plenty of nostalgia involved, with a look back at the centre’s history, old photos of exciting events and the most memorable celebrity appearances, and even some old Lakeside magazines. Some of the fashion from our early years is simply unforgettable!

You’ll even be able to watch some old episodes of “Lakesiders” (and see if you can spot yourself in the background!) and place your hands in the moulded prints of celebrities like Martine McCutcheon, Katie Price, Ricky Tomlinson, Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor and Denise Van Outen.

For the kids, there’ll be free activities on 7th and 8th May, including giant cubes to paint under the guidance of cartoon artist Scott Walker. Suitable for all ages and abilities, these fun graffiti-style painting cubes will allow children to make their mark on a collective piece of artwork.
