Have a cracking time with Humpty

An egg-citing visitor will be hoping to have a cracking time at the Beacon Centre, in North Shields.

Humpty Dumpty will be visiting the centre on Good Friday, having his photo taken with shoppers.

Easter Saturday will see workshops to make an Easter bonnet between 10.30am and 3.30pm.

Beacon Centre manager Chris Wilson said: “We are pleased that the centre will be child friendly over Easter, with Humpty and the Easter workshops.

“It will be great fun for the kids, and something for the whole family to enjoy.

“All our stores will be open and we expect a high footfall over the holiday weekend.”

The Beacon Centre will be closed on Easter Sunday.
