Trafford Centre is proud to announce its summer season entertainment for 2022, the centre’s most significant outdoor event to date. ‘Summer Daze’ will offer a delightful line-up of family-friendly activity for all ages to enjoy, day through night.

The outdoor event will span 2.5 acres of land and will be located outside the Great Hall at Trafford Centre until 4 September.

Trafford Centre’s summer of sport is set to go live from 27 June, with a free to access fan zone to watch big sporting events such as Wimbledon, Tour De France, Women’s EURO, and the Athletics World Championships on a 15sq m giant screen.

A further two big screens will go live from 22 July showing more live sports and classic films throughout the summer.

The iconic funfair will also return in all its glory from 22 July, with an exciting upgrade of rides, complete with a 600sqm beach and a NEW 200sqm splash park with multiple water jets for guaranteed family-friendly fun.

The fairground will also feature an exciting new ride called Sea Storm, where the public can ride the wave in individual cruisers. Former favourites are also set to make a return including the log flume, bungee trampolines, wave swinger, water balls, pirate ship and bumper boats.

Anyone with a fairground wristband will also have viewing access to one of the three big screens from the beach area to keep all ages entertained.

Live music and details of the new outdoor food & beverage zone to be announced in the coming weeks.

Entry to Summer Daze is on a first come first served basis and will be open from 12pm daily. The only element of the outdoor event which is available to pre-book is the fairground. Please visit for more details.
