Royal Priors centre manager Gerry McManus said: “We are very pleased to be celebrating our 25th year in Royal Leamington Spa and wanted to thank our shoppers by holding a birthday party in the centre.

“There was free entertainment and fun for families as well as exclusive special offers and discounts on the day.

“There have been lots of changes at the centre over the last 25 years, including a £7 million refurbishment and extension in 2002.

“This year, we are pleased to welcome some exciting new brands such as Carluccio’s.

“I’ve been at the” centre for more than 17 years and have thoroughly enjoyed working in the town and being involved in the local community.

“We are very much looking forward to the next 25 years .”
