Over the last two days, I have been photographing the pre and grand opening for The Entertainer in Aylesbury, the opening of the 100th store! Gary Grant, the store founder and owner was thrilled with the opening of the 100th store. The team put on a great day and very successful, all the children enjoying themselves hugely!
The day started with a trolly dash for PACE, who are a charity who help children and young adults who live with motor disorders. A very fast trolly dash giving the children one minute to fill their baskets, they managed to achieve £433.22 worth of toys, a great donation to the charity.
Once the ribbon was cut, the queue rushed into the shop, collecting goody bags and meeting the characters on their way in and exploring the shop, finding their favourite toys. There was a great atmosphere of excitement throughout the day, Mix 96 and The Bucks Herald covering the opening, TV cartoon character, Spongebob Squarepants made a special appearance, face painting, cake and the lego men.
It was a privilege to photograph an amazing event, below are some of my favourite shots from the day.
