Bluewater has been taken over by giant ice lollies and floral displays this summer as it welcomes the gorgeous and colourful Lollydays installation.

The mammoth lollies are each more than three metres long and are suspended in mid-air above the centre’s Guildhall. The nine lollies form part of a  140-metre long floral display featuring over 7,000 artificial flowers and foliage stems across the skyline of the shopping centre including peonies, poppies, roses, wisteria, gladiolus and gerberas.

The bold and colourful Lollydays display was intricately constructed over two-and-a-half months for Bluewater in a workshop by James Glancy Design before being carefully couriered into the retail and leisure destination. The lollies and floral displays were installed in the middle of the night by a specialist team using cherry pickers to lift them into place, taking 4 nights to complete before being officially unveiled this week.

The arrival of Lollydays launches a summer of activity at Bluewater, including the return of The Beach on 23rd July.  

James Waugh, Centre Director at Bluewater, said: “We’re so excited to unveil the glorious Lollydays installation at Bluewater. We can’t wait to see our guests enjoying the vibrant display, and hope to see plenty of selfies shared on social media.”

Lollydays will be on show at Bluewater from now until 14th September. Guests are invited to enjoy the colourful installation and snap selfies during centre opening hours. For more information, visit
