Shopping centre

The Show Globe provides a perfect shopping centre entertainment act to draw in the crowds, engage and entertain the public. It is a completely original, interactive attraction that glides slowly through shopping centres, malls and concourses – whether indoor or outdoor.

Interactive crowd entertainment for shopping centres

With three beautiful themes to choose from, this interactive performance act gives you a high impact and unique choice for your shopping centre’s spring, summer and Christmas entertainment programmes.

Increase footfall for a small investment

We understand that your choice of entertainment for your centre needs to tick multiple boxes. It needs to be visually marketable on your social media channels, enough of an attraction to increase footfall, whilst being cost effective. Retailers want to see results. Families want something the children will enjoy in-between doing their shopping. Then of course, it all needs to tick all the health and safety boxes. We have three unique acts that do all this and more, making them ideal for your shopping centre entertainment!

We help our prestigious and larger retail clients by using our creative expertise in promoting events. We’ve been doing this for years, and we love a good crowd as much as you do! We can help you with:

Digital marketing assistance

The Show Globe provides high quality images and video footage to help you market the act’s appearance, and increase footfall on your chosen days.

Strong and engaged social media reach

Its uniqueness attracts strong social media reach before, during and after the day. Leverage selfie sharing and picture-taking with your shopping centre’s hashtag.

Technical steward

It’s a self-contained act which means there is no need for cables, staging or rigging of any kind.

One Steward is provided with the act, no power required. The Steward is on hand at all times to ensure the act runs smoothly. You can rest easy and leave it all to us.

Family and child-friendly shopping centre entertainment

Children absolutely love these magical acts, families bring their children to the centres to see them. If you’re holding a children’s book launch, craft event or themed fun day, we can help to bring it to life.

Safety and crowd control

Risk assessment, public liability insurance and enhanced DBS checks held. The structure is safe, tactile for children to touch, no sharp edges and moves very slowly guided by our steward.

“Your photos are really beautiful, they’ve generated the highest interest on our social media, more than any of our other activities.”
