Month: April 2016


Following the success of last year’s {Colchester Presents} Style Destination, Colchester’s own fashion event returns to town for the second year running on 29 and 30 April.

For this year’s event Lion Walk Shopping Centre & Red Lion Yard are teaming up with Cancer Research UK again to support its “Race for Life” campaign.

The centres will be adopting Cancer Research’s tribal-theme for its exciting “Fashion in a Flash” mobile catwalk shows that will take place around Lion Walk and Red Lion Yard on both days, showcasing the very latest fashions from the centre’s retailers.

The centres are on the hunt for members of the public to be models for the day. A Facebook competition to find two lucky winners will be launched on Facebook on Tuesday 5 April.

{Colchester Presents} Style Destination, Colchester’s own fashion week style event, is now in its second year. It aims to celebrate the wide range of fashion and style available in the town centre from big brand stores and independent boutiques and organised jointly by Lion Walk Shopping Centre and Culver Square. Shoppers will be able to enjoy fun and stylish events and promotions across the town centres during the two days.

After the success of last years’ fashion event, the team behind {COLCHESTER PRESENTS} is bringing Style Destination, Colchester’s fashion weekend, back to the town. On Friday and Saturday, 29th and 30th April, the event will see fun, fashion-theme activities in Culver Square, Lion Walk Shopping Centre & Red Lion Yard, with a host of stylish events and promotions taking place in the town centre.

On both days, visitors to Style Destination will be able to sign up for the free event pass which will entitle them to fantastic discounts in shops across the town.  Register for a FREE Event Pass here:

As well as great value shopping, the shopping centres will be hosting fashion events, including a series of pop up fashion shows with the Lion Walk fashion army plus free beauty treatments, a spring and summer fashion showcase and the chance to be “spotted in the square” to potentially win £150 shopping spree in Culver Square.

Lion Walk Shopping Centre & Red Lion Yard are teaming up with Cancer Research UK (@CR_UK) to support its #PinkArmy #RaceforLife campaign. The #PinkArmy, which is the charity’s 2016 @RaceforLife theme, will inspire outfits, hair and make up in the fashion army events.

Culver Square centre manager, David Robertson, said: “Last years’ Style Destination was the first time that town centre stakeholders joined together to create a {COLCHESTER PRESENTS} event. Since then we have worked together to create some great campaigns and events to promote the town centre throughout the year. Colchester is a fantastic place to shop and Style Destination is a great opportunity to showcase the wonderful mix of independent and big brand retail in our town.”

Peter Scopes, Centre Manager at Lion Walk and Red Lion Yard added: “Style Destination is another landmark annual event that’s only been possible with the town centre shops working together as Colchester Presents. With on-trend fashion, cutting edge home styling and unique independent gems, you’re guaranteed to leave delighted.”
