Centre Court Shopping Centre in Wimbledon are asking customers to be part of the story as they encourage their shoppers to fall in love with literature again.
Taking a walk through Centre Court, the shopping centre is adorned with quotes from novels; old favourites and new finds. Follow the words throughout the Centre and you’ll find an interactive quiz wall with chances to win prizes based on your book smarts! For those just looking for a place to slip between the pages of a book, nestled outside H&M is a quiet seating area with a small library to read free books and even keep.
If you prefer to be behind the words, Centre Court are offering monthly giveaways for all budding writers who wish to share their story and become part of ‘The Story Society’ with monthly offers, blogs and community literature news.
Centre Court just hosted one of their first literature-themed event, ‘Once Upon a February’ with hundreds of customers kissing a giant animatronic frog in the hope of revealing a handsome Prince! Although the Prince wasn’t for keeps, vouchers, discounts and frivolity were on offer for all customers over their Valentine’s event.
Looking forward, the Centre hopes that customers continue to enjoy the stories we all know so well, being brought to life alongside seasonal holidays.
Keep an eye out for the Wise Words of Wonderful Women being celebrated this Mother’s Day or finding Wonderland and a trip down the Easter Rabbit Hole this Spring!
