Following last year’s success of the Eventful Kids Creativity Centre, Bayfair Shopping Centre has brought back the popular school holiday programme to keep local kids entertained.

From 18 to 22 July, the Eventful Kids Creativity Centre at Bayfair will be encouraging kids aged 3 to 12 years to come along and let their imaginations run wild, forestalling any school holiday boredom.

The school holidays are the perfect time for good, old-fashioned play with the added benefit for parents being able to nurture their child’s imagination and creativity while they fit in some shopping. The centre’s complimentary Creativity Centre is located outside Farmers and will be in operation between 11am and 3pm.

Bayfair Shopping Centre marketing manager Nina Rivett said the return of the Creativity Centre enhances Bayfair’s offering by encouraging the whole family to come down to the centre. “We are delighted to bring this great school holiday activity to Bayfair. While parents take time out to do a bit of shopping or have a quiet coffee, the kids can do the same by taking time out to have some fun. The centre offers an exciting range of crafts and plenty of scope to let children’s ideas come to life.”

For the less crafty, there is the opportunity to create a story, animate it with puppets, dress up for effect, or share it with others using the story-boards. “There is something for everyone to enjoy,” Ms Rivett says. “Parents can be rest assured that their kid’s boredom will be kept at bay, while they run errands or just take the opportunity to have a break.”

Each child may stay for up to an hour at the Creativity Centre, with no booking or payment required. Please note that as the number of places is limited, this service is subject to availability and operates on a first come, first served basis.
