A POPULAR shopping centre in Braintree will be hosting four days of events for its shoppers with discounts, star speakers, and prizes to be won.

Braintree Village hopes to give visitors the “VIP treatment” with its four-day rewards event next weekend.

Big name brands in the centre will be offering up to 20 per cent off discounts, freebies, and giveaways, from September 30 to October 3.

A range of free events will also be running for shoppers with the VIP guest pass including a prosecco bar which will be handing out free fizz.

An extra layer of fun added to the weekend’s events include free talks from star speakers.

Braintree Village’s studio space will feature the talks on Saturday, October 2 and Sunday, October 3.

Instagram hit and interior designer Hayley Rubery, known on social media as Frock Me Im Famous, will host an hour-long talk on the Saturday about her inspiration for the chic style she has brought to the studio.

And on Sunday celebrity stylist Ellis Ranson will meet and greet guests.

She will also be giving four 20-minute talks on her key styling tips and answer shoppers’ questions.

Braintree Village centre director Josef O’Sullivan said: “The VIP Rewards event is a great way for our shoppers, who are at the heart of Braintree Village, to bag a bargain.

“With an array of exclusive discounts at a wide range of stores and across much-loved brands, along with a variety of giveaways throughout the weekend, we’re confident there will be something for everyone to ensure the whole family has a great day out.

“Hayley’s passion for interiors mixed with her love for the centre along with Ellis’ eye for fashion, made them the perfect choice to share their tips at our VIP event.

“We expect tickets to be snapped up quickly, so we recommend securing your spot early.

“It’s free to register and attend the event, so sign up now to make sure you don’t miss out.”
