FOUR glorious days of Jubilee celebrations were marked at Lakeside in honour of The Queen that saw thousands of people come together to the shopping and leisure destination.
Footfall was up at the Thurrock centre and retailers were singing a merry tune as spending was reportedly over target across the majority of retailers and restaurants were packed out.
Entertainment on the mall included a giant interactive Royal parcel and postbox, a town crier, mascots, performances and prizes were there to be won. Crowds gathered to watch all four days of celebration on the big screen in The Quay including Trooping the Colour, the stunning fly-past and the glorious moments of the animated Royal grandchildren.
“It has been the most wonderful four days of activity, fun and celebrations at Lakeside,” said Susan Williamson, Marketing Manager at Lakeside. “The Platinum Jubilee is a once in a lifetime experience and we are delighted with the fantastic spirit and joy that was shared throughout the centre.”
