Queensgate brings Animal Paradise to Peterborough
This February Half Term, Queensgate Shopping Centre is taking a walk on the wild side as 15 life-size creatures, made purely from bricks, take over the Peterborough mall.
Animal Paradise is a free model exhibition for children and adults to enjoy over the holidays located across the malls in Queensgate. The impressive structures include some of the most endangered animals in the world, so as well as being mighty impressive to see, it aims to educate the next generation of children on the theme of endangered animal species.
Visitors to the centre will come face-to-face with amazing creatures such as an imposing Tiger, a proud African Lion, the rare Blue Fin Tuna, a Giant Panda and a graceful Dolphin.
The four habitats represented in Animal Paradise are Wildlands, Snow and Ice, Ocean and Jungle and each of the 15 animals comes with an ID card that includes a question to answer that will help complete a trail map. Queensgate will also be running a competition to win a prize so look out on their social media channels and find out how to enter.
“From previous events in Queensgate we know that brick exhibitions are incredibly popular and this event is both stunning to see and educational for families,” said Katie Chapman, Marketing and Commercialisation Manager at Queensgate. “As we start a new year, we have a whole host of exciting events and activities planned for 2024 that we hope will appeal to customers young and old.”
The exhibition is open from Saturday 17 February until Sunday 25 February.
The Animal Paradise tour has been seen across the world. The first set premiered in 2018 and has visited 3 continents since. Starting in the Bird’s Nest Stadium, Beijing, the models then moved on to the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco before flying across the pond for events at the Dallas Cowboys and Brookfield Zoo, Chicago.
