Taking to the skies

West Midlands Kite Festival has certainly made a colourful impact on Telford Shopping Centre.

The inaugural event, held in the Town Park on September 4th, inspired us to install kite decorations throughout the Centre and to create a huge new piece of artwork.

Our kite mural, on display in The Border, shows more than 100 local people ‘flying kites’ in a quirky collage.

Did you strike a pose? Then head down to The Border to find how you feature in the artwork.

Our free Kite Making Workshops, held over Bank Holiday Weekend, were very popular with visitors to the Centre. The sessions enabled children to create their own fabulous fliers and learn more about kite design, thanks to experts from ‘Skybums’.

If you took to the skies at the Kite Festival, why not share your kite flying photos with us? Find us on Facebook www.facebook.com/TelfordShoppingCentre or Twitter @TelfordCentre and remember to #KiteFestival

And don’t forget there is still time to win one of the 100 kites currently bringing a flash of colour to the Centre.

Follow the trail of kites on the mall floors until you find the 10-letter code words. Entry forms are available from Customer Services and the competition closes at 6pm on Saturday 10th September.
