Maker Call: Jurassic Island at Trinity Leeds

So a few weeks back we put an open call out to find specifically 'Jubilee' products as we we're curating a collection to be featured in our upcoming pop-up hosted in John Lewis Cheadle. We've scoured the applications and invited 14 small business to stock a handful of bespoke products, fitting for a royal celebration, and next week we'll launch this new Curated collection in the pop-up, we cannot wait! Do check out our Instagram next week to see this up and running and in action.

We've now got the bug for these specialised table curations and having got wind that Leeds host a MASSIVE Dinosaur trail in the Summer months, we thought why not recreate this idea but with a Dinosaur focus, for our store in Trinity's a no brainer right?!

Leeds will be home to 15 Dinosaurs this Summer as part of their Jurassic Island campaign, where families, in fact anyone, can hunt all 15 Dinos across an array of venues all across Leeds City Centre. A brilliant FREE activity for all to get into the centre, to get those all important steps in, to have fun searching new areas of Leeds you may never have visited before, and to just have a bit of fun this Summer. There's the new Jurassic Park film coming out too (10th July 2022) so surely it's a great way to build up to seeing that, I'll be going to the Everyman to watch it for sure!!

If you want to see some images and a write-up of last years event, we've spotted a great blog post here for you to have a peek of, so you can visualise these HUGE dinos!

Trinity Leeds will be home to TWO of the dinosaurs...hence where we come into it!! We have our beautiful store situated on the Ground Floor, opposite Moss Bross, not far from Next, Office and H&M. Well we'd like to find the best Dinosaur themed products from our lovely makers, to get fully involved in the campaign, to draw in footfall into the shop, to offer customers and dino fans the chance to embrace the Jurassic Island experience whilst supporting local and British based makers too! We know there are SO many beautiful Dinosaur products as we've stocked a few in the past...and now we're seeking more!

So if this is you, or a maker you know, fill out the form below or forward this to someone who would be perfect, you'll thank us later. Then in the next few weeks, we'll be in touch to invite those successful.
