The Gruffalo Experience enjoys world premiere at Meadowhall

Gruffalo Press Day with school

Meadowhall Shopping Centre welcomed a VIG – Very Important Gruffalo – today with the world exclusive opening of ‘THE GRUFFALO EXPERIENCE’.
Set to run throughout this Easter, the Gruffalo Experience was officially opened by pupils from nearby Tinsley Meadows Primary School who became the first children to welcome the Gruffalo to Meadowhall.

The class of five and six year olds enjoyed a fully interactive experience during their 45 minute journey through the attraction where they got to meet the Gruffalo face to face and interact with the all characters.

Darren Pearce, Centre Director at Meadowhall, said: “This event has been months in the planning so it’s fantastic to see it all come to life at Meadowhall. The children’s reaction to the Gruffalo was just priceless and I’m sure all the thousands of families who come to see it over Easter will enjoy the same magical experience.”

The Gruffalo opened to the public on March 21 and will run until April 12, 2015. Thousands of ticket have already been ordered in advance by families from across the region.
