White Rose Shopping Centre celebrated Yorkshire Day today with an unusual twist on sheepdog demonstrations accompanied by a live brass band.
Crowds were entertained in the centre’s recently opened Village with duck-herding demonstrations, a live brass band, children’s games and a free photobooth so visitors could take away a memento of the day.
Steven Foster, general manager of White Rose Shopping Centre, said: “We’re known for our Yorkshire Day celebrations here at White Rose – last year we created the UK’s largest bouquet of white roses – and we know that our visitors love to get stuck in to fun activities, so a traditional herding demonstration with a twist was a great way to celebrate the occasion.”
The Village is White Rose’s newly-opened outdoor development with six restaurants: Limeyard, Five Guys, Chiquito, TGI Friday’s, Wagamama, and Pizza Hut. A children’s outdoor woodland play area is set to open later this month, with an 11-screen IMAX Cineworld to follow later this year.
