Visitors to Gainsborough’s Marshall’s Yard shopping centre flocked in their hundreds to celebrate the centre’s 10th birthday and enjoy the heatwave over the weekend.
The centre kicked off its two day celebration with a food festival consisting of 40 food stalls and crafts, as well as live cookery demonstrations from Gainsborough chefs.
On Saturday at 12 noon entertainment kicked off on stage with the Studio Dance School and live music performances also took place with Freddie Halkon, Grace Bower and The Torn.
A balloon release was set off at 1pm to mark the centre’s 10th anniversary with a little help from the new Marshall’s Yard flower mascot.
Centre manager for Marshall’s Yard, Alison Hall, said: “Gainsborough did us proud turning out for our big birthday celebration.
“It was great to celebrate this fantastic milestone with everyone.
“The weather was fabulous and it was great to see so many people enjoying the sunshine and the entertainment we organised to mark this very special weekend – not to mention the lovely food.”
On Sunday the celebrations continued starting off with live Zumba demonstrations followed by music from Leanne Fothers, The Acoustic State and the Gainsborough Ukele Strummers.
Free cupcakes and balloons were handed out and cookery demonstrations took place once again from Cream, Prezzo and the White Swan from Scotter.
Families also enjoyed a free horse and carriage ride around Marshall’s Yard throughout the sunny Sunday afternoon.
To further mark the centre’s tenth birthdat there will be an Easter Eggstravaganza this Saturday and lots of other events across the anniversary year.
