Family favourites Wallace & Gromit are coming to Slough's Queensmere Observatory shopping centre on Friday, May 31.

The loveable characters are celebrating 30 cracking years since their first short film, A Grand Day Out premiered in 1989. Visitors to the shopping centre will have the chance to see the duo up close at intervals throughout the day and snap a memorable photo with the pair – shoppers are reminded to say cheese.

Speaking of grand days out, for the rest of June Queensmere Observatory are hosting several family fun days and fundraising events as part of the One Great Day campaign, in support of Great Ormond Street hospital and chosen charity Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice.
