A commitment to the community sits at the heart of everything the Guildhall Shopping Centre does. We saw the project as a great way to engage with the wider community and to support a superb cause. That’s why we wanted members of the community to contribute to the design of Ubuntu, our gorilla.
The project was the catalyst for a whole summer of family fun activities in the centre. It was also a great driver for our social media activity, on Facebook, Twitter and on our website. It has also helped us to build even stronger ties to our local community, and with other supporters of the project.
The Guildhall Shopping Centre is the region’s leading family shopping centre. It is home to a wide variety of national brands and independent businesses, all providing products and services enjoyed by residents of Exeter and visitors to the city. It plays host to the ever successful Exeter Innovations and weekly Street Food Markets.
