EVENTS: What's On Summer 2016
Monday 11th July - Bishop's Mitre, Durham In Bloom
Have you ever wondered what a giant bishop’s mitre made of flowers looks like?
In recognition of our rich heritage we are proud to be welcoming a 3D floral feature to our aptly-named Prince Bishops Shopping Centre from July 11th until the 19th August. The beautiful installation will be a point of significance in a special Floral Trail - part of Durham’s entry into the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Northumbria in Bloom and Britain in Bloom competitions.
RHS Britain in Bloom is a nationwide community gardening campaign to transform cities, towns and villages and we urge you to come and see for yourself the crowning glory to the city’s national ‘In Bloom’ bid this year.
Wednesday 10th August, Mr. Bloom is back!
Pop along to Prince Bishops Shopping Centre and say ‘Ello!’ with Mr Bloom.
There’ll be a bundle of veggie stories, gardening games, and catchy Nursery songs for Tiddlers and Parents alike. To sum it up in the words of a famous Aubergine: ‘Let’s sing and dance and have some fun!’
Yes that's right Mr. Bloom from CBeebies will be visiting our wonderful shopping centre to perform not one but TWO live shows, the first at 11:30am and the second at 1:30pm in front of girls and boys (and some mums!) from across County Durham. We look forward to seeing you there! We advise you to arrive early if you want a good spot as we envisage it will get busy!
Sunday 21st August 11am - 4pm - Uniformed Services Fun Day!
Come and meet our uniformed services, watch live water rescue demonstrations, be up close and personal with stars from Channel 5's television show Police Interceptors, experience life as a fire fighter in a smoke house simulator and so much more!
