Swashbuckling fun and treasure at the Forum Shopping Centre

From Saturday 27th May until Saturday 3rd June, children of Sittingbourne are invited to follow in the footsteps of their favourite pirates and search for treasure at the Forum Shopping Centre’s half term event.

Everyday, between 11am and 4pm, in celebration of the release of the new Pirates of the Carribean film, Dead Men Tell No Tales, children are invited to hunt for pirate themed posters hidden in store windows around the centre. Once they spot a poster, they can collect their loot by simply popping inside the store to receive the ultimate pirate treat - gold coins!

Furthermore, on Saturday 3rd June children are encouraged to get into the pirate spirit and dress up as their favourite buccaneer as the centre welcomes a special walkabout Captain pirate. The swashbuckling Captain will be on hand to help children look out for treasure and complete their pirate look by handing out free themed balloon models.

Even better, throughout the day, The Forum Shopping Centre will be running a special competition on its Facebook page inviting shoppers to upload a photo with The Forum’s Captain Pirate for the chance to win a whole ‘treasure chest’ of wonderful prizes.

Monica Rana, Centre Manger of The Forum Shopping Centre, commented:

“With half term activities often being expensive for families, we’re thrilled to be able to provide our free swashbuckling week-long fun for our younger shoppers. I can’t wait to see the fantastic pirate themed outfits and look forward to announcing the winner of our Facebook competition.”
