Discover Dudley Showcase at Intu Merry Hill

On Saturday 12th May our outreach team spent a day at intu Merry Hill as part of the very first Discover Dudley showcase event.

Based in the event space outside M&S, River Island and H Samuels, Dudley attractions offered free activities and promoted things to do in Dudley. Our volunteers and staff were making fossil medals with families and 360 photospheres of our caverns with interested visitors.

Through the day we chatted to about 300 people, some of whom knew us well and some who didn’t, some who’d seen us recently and some who hadn’t visited in many years!

Thanks to everyone who supported the event, either as a visitor coming and chatting to us or volunteers who helped us to staff the stand all day.
