Bernadette Walsh, who said the event had brought them a bumper sales
Bernadette said:- "I didn't
actually get out to see the shows because it was so manic in store.
We had a really busy week in general but Saturday was exceptional
and the event must have had an impact because footfall in the centre
was a lot higher than normal. It really did seem to bring a lot of
customers through the door."

was really lively and fun to watch and the shopping centre was very
busy. There was a real buzz to the place, and the reaction from the
shops has been very positive. From the smiles on our customers'
faces, everyone seemed to be having a really good time."
