Children’s favourite Peppa Pig and her little brother George are making a return visit to visit to Wrexham to give local youngsters a half term treat.
The cheeky little piggies will be at the Eagles Meadow shopping centre on Tuesday, February 17, and will be making appearances at various intervals between 11am and 4pm.
They’ll be arriving a few days after the duo make their big screen debut in Peppa Pig: The Golden Boots, at the centre’s Odeon cinema on Valentine’s Day, February 14.
The cinema experience sees Peppa appear in her first ever 15 minute special episode to be shown in movie theatres.
It follows Peppa’s desperate quest across land, sea and even into space to find her missing golden boots before the “big Puddle Jump Competition”.
Young fans will also be able to see their favourite episodes in an hour of Peppa Pig fun.
For the uninitiated, Peppa Pig is a lovable but slightly bossy little pig and lives with Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and her little brother, George.
Peppa likes playing with her best friend, Suzy Sheep, visiting Granny and Grandpa Pig and looking after George.
Most of all, though, she loves jumping up and down in muddy puddles, laughing and making loud snorting noises.
Peppa Pig has been a fixture on our television screens for the past 11 years and is one of the most successful TV programmes ever.
The show has aired in 180 countries across the world and continues to dominate TV listings in the UK where it can be seen several times daily on Channel 5 and Nick Jr.
Eagles Meadow Manager Kevin Critchley is thrilled at the prospect of welcoming Peppa and George back to Wrexham.
He said: “We thought it would be nice if we introduced a bit of fun for our shoppers and their families at Eagles Meadow during the half term holiday.
“Peppa and George attracted a huge number of young fans last time they were here and we’re expecting an even bigger response now they are hitting the big screen too.”
