Sweetheart Selfies on Saturday 9th February 2019
Love is in the air at Friars Walk this February and shoppers can capture the moment as part of Sweetheart Selfies – a new event coming to the Newport shopping and leisure destination.
From 11am to 4pm on Saturday 9 February, Friars Walk will be providing the backdrop for a stunning selfie against the centre’s beautiful flower wall, great as a special addition to any Valentine’s Day presents. There will be plenty of props and fashion accessories to pose with to capture a memorable moment, with a photographer also on-hand to snap the perfect picture.
Throughout the day there will also be free mini-makeovers, provided by the teams from Debenhams and The Body Shop. There will be a selection of fantastic prizes up for grabs for shoppers who share their photos using the hashtag #sweetheartselfie. A range of goody bags packed full of freebies from the centre’s retailers will also be available for those that take part in the day*.
Friars Walk Centre Director, Simon Pullen, said he was looking forward to the day. “We’ll have plenty on offer to help make this Valentine’s the best yet,” said Simon. “We know the flower wall in particular is going to prove extremely popular as everyone loves a good selfie.
“With it being the final weekend before 14 February, we’re expecting a busy Saturday in the centre as the people of Newport try to find that great gift for the most romantic day of the year. We hope our Sweetheart Selfie event provides the inspiration to find that ideal treat.
“It will be great to have the teams from The Body Shop and Debenhams involved on the day as we’ve got a brilliant beauty offering in Friars Walk,” Simon added. “The experts from both stores will be providing mini-makeovers and makeup and skincare advice for our shoppers. We can’t wait to see how many people get involved and take advantage of all the fantastic things at the event.”
Sweetheart Selfies will be in Friars Walk from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 9 February and all activities are free to take part in.
