Love Revolution


Take heart and join our love revolution!

The Brunel Shopping Centre’s Love Revolution has something for everyone this year. 

On 14 February children will be able to make Valentine’s Day cards in the craft area in the Arcade (near to That’s Entertainment).  Just drop in between 10.30am and 4pm.  Activities are free but children must be accompanied by an adult.

For those hoping to find romantic love the centre is holding its very first speed dating night on 14 and 15 February.  Tickets cost £15 including a supper.  It has to be worth a just never know!  To book your space come to the Management Office located on the first floor of The Plaza adjacent to Crystals and Something Different or phone 01793 525857 to book and pay for your tickets over the phone.

And for those who have already found the love of their lives, there’s a chance to win a romantic city break for two, worth £500 with our Valentine’s competition.  Simply pick up a leaflet from the display in The Crossing, find the hidden hearts on the Brunel website, fill in your answer and your name and contact details and you and your partner could be jetting off to somewhere wonderful this year.  

Or leave your very own messages on our Love board – can you imagine how good it would feel for your loved one to spot a message that has been left just for them. 

Or how about tweeting on the centre’s Live Twitter Wall.  The most romantic tweet could win a £100 gift card.  Don’t be shy!

And for those short of inspiration on what to get your loved one The Brunel have put together a handy gift guide and have filled the centre’s display cabinets with Valentine’s Day gift ideas to help you.
