Join Peter Rabbit™ and friends for a summer adventure at The Trafford Centre, in a brand-new, captivating indoor family experience.

From 22 July – 30 August, children will be invited to explore a secret garden that brings to life The World of Peter Rabbit™, where they will get to meet the official classic Peter Rabbit™ character.

Children will be welcomed by the character of Mrs. Rabbit, who needs some help decorating and filling her flower pots. She explains that the adventurous Peter has run off to Mr. McGregor’s garden and asks if you will go and look for him?

Will you be brave enough to sneak through grumpy Mr. McGregor’s garden? If you see him stare, you must be still as a statue – and watch out for that mischievous character, Squirrel Nutkin. Once you’ve made it through the garden, look for Peter Rabbit in the hidden woodland den, say hello and tell him to hop home, lickety-split!

This enchanting experience includes activities such as flowerpot decorating and seed planting, as well as a Peter Rabbit costume character meet and greet for each family or group, which includes a professional photography opportunity within a charming woodland setting.

Children will receive a special treat, with merchandise and personalised photographs available to purchase at the end. 

Relaxed, inclusive sessions will run every Wednesday at 10am and 4.30pm, featuring smaller groups of visitors and quieter music.

Zoe Inman, Centre Director at The Trafford Centre, said: “The charming stories of Peter Rabbit are timeless and treasured by all generations, so we’re delighted to be bringing a new indoor summer experience that the whole family will enjoy.”

Thomas Merrington, Creative Director at Penguin Ventures (part of Penguin Random House Children’s) said: “We are thrilled to be partnering once again with The Trafford Centre to bring a new summer experience! Families will love exploring this new installation, especially as they’ll get to meet and greet the official Peter Rabbit costume character at the end.”
