 A Ballynahinch Boy has celebrated turning ten with a birthday party in Victoria Square’s Iconic Dome.

 Northern Ireland’s leading leisure and retail destination, Victoria Square, turned 10 this week (Tuesday 6th March) and a local boy – who shares his birthday with the popular Belfast shopping centre – joined in on the celebrations.

 Scott Hamilton from Ballynahinch, who was born on 6th March 2008 – the day Victoria Square first opened to the public – was joined by members of his family and four other 10-year-olds for a private birthday party in the dome.

Throughout the month of March, Victoria Square is saying thank you for the memories with a host of exclusive events and over £10,000 worth of giveaways to celebrate its big birthday.

Over the next few weeks, shoppers will benefit from a fantastic range of promotions, offers, giveaways and events, as Victoria Square goes into full on celebration mode, with the mall bedecked with an impressive floral installation.

Live music on the mall will create a party atmosphere, as Victoria Square partners with the Oh Yeah Music Centre to host 10 live performances from up and coming local artists.

During the 10th birthday month, customers will also have the chance to win an array of prizes and VSQ experiences. A massive £10,000 worth of Victoria Square prizes will dished out through giveaways on the mall and in partnership with Visit Belfast, Cool FM and Q Radio. A special arcade machine in the centre from 16th-25th will offer visitors the chance to win fantastic gifts, ranging in value from £5 – £500, with proceeds going to Victoria Square’s chosen charities for 2018.

Victoria Square’s iconic dome is acting as showcase area for a range of prize-winning artistic creations, submitted through a public art competition to mark its 10th birthday. The 10 winning artworks, which draw their inspiration from Belfast over the last decade, were judged by local artist, Aly Harte following a public art competition that attracted a staggering 1000 entries.

A Mother’s Day Fayre on 10th and 11th March and Easter activities kicking off on 30th March will bring further buzz and excitement to the centre during the 10th anniversary month.
