Kent shopping centre Bluewater is hoping to boost footfall with a selection of live music, comedy and theatre this summer.
The schedule of events titled Summer Live will be held at Bluewater’s events venue Glow from July 26 to August 11.
The shopping centre will host performances from female pop group The Saturdays, The X Factor contestant Amelia Lily and shows such as Mock the Week and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow.
Venue director Michael Watton said a trial at the end of last year had demonstrated a demand for live events.
He added: “I expect that Summer Live at Glow will serve as template for regular and varied live events complementing consumer and business-to-business shows in Glow’s annual calendar.”
