    On the 31st at 12pm we will be holding a ‘best dressed Shaun’ fancy dress costume and would so love it if you would help us encourage kids to come and join in the fun at The Arndale Centre!

    We will be giving away fluffy Shaun ears to the first 100 kids down to see Shaun each day and there will be prizes for the best fancy dress costumes on the 31st!
