Peppa the Pig and brother George at Royal Quays

POPULAR children’s character Peppa the Pig will be making a personal appearance at the Royal Quays outlet centre in North Shields on the Bank Holiday Monday.

Peppa and her younger brother George are coming back by popular demand after a successful visit last year.

The cheeky little piggies will be making personal appearances at 11am, noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.

Royal Quays centre manager Judith Ramshaw said: “After the huge welcome that children gave them last year, we have been under huge pressure to ask them back again.

“We are really looking forward to welcoming Peppa Pig and George back to the centre and we think it will be a very memorable day for the children and families who come along.

“We know how popular they were with the children last year and how much they were looking forward to meeting them once again.”
