Summer Unlocked at Barons Quay


Unlock the fun at Barons Quay this summer! Explore our mysterious Wildflower Maze, complete the Flower Trail and enjoy a host of free family activities!

From Saturday 24th July you can visit our Wildflower Maze where little ones can explore and learn about nature as they navigate the twists and turns in search of the secret Summer house at its centre.   You’ll find it opposite H&M and Sticky Paws, it’s open everyday between 11am and 7pm

You can learn all about British Wildflowers by doing the Northwich Flower Trail, there are 20 native plants in locations around Barons Quay, Witton Street, Market Street and the High Street.   Simply pick up an activity sheet from The Entertainer store in Barons Quay or Northwich Library and then go in search of the Flower Trail floor stickers around the town.  Once you’ve found a flower you can learn all about it thanks to interactive QR codes which will provide participants with interesting facts and information as they go.

Completed sheets should then be posted in a special letterbox on level one of the travelator hall at Barons Quay to be entered into a free prize draw to win a £50 voucher for The Entertainer.
