Peter Rabbit™ spreads smiles in Shrewsbury

The Darwin Shopping Centre welcomed a VIB (Very Important Bunny) this weekend, as Peter Rabbit hopped along to the shopping and leisure destination on Saturday. 

Youngsters were able to meet their favourite furry hero, as the family favourite took a break from trying to take over Mr McGregor’s garden to explore the centre and meet his fans at intervals during the day, with plenty of smiles being seen throughout Shrewsbury. 

Kevin Lockwood, Centre Manager of the Darwin Shopping Centre, said he was delighted to see Peter Rabbit hopping around the centre. “We had a fantastic day of fun on Saturday,” said Kevin. “Peter Rabbit is a character that has been a favourite with families for generations and it was brilliant to have him here this weekend. It was heart-warming to see the smiles on children’s faces as they met him up-close. 

“Alongside meeting the UK’s most popular rabbit, free bunny workshops were available for children to enjoy as well as a stunning woodland trail dotted throughout the two shopping centres, for the entire family to explore.”
