To celebrate the release of Finding Dory in cinemas, Ashton Arcades Shopping Centre turned into the majestic deep to sea today.

Shoppers at the Arcades were asked to lend a hand and decorate the 3m x 3m mural, transforming it from a colouring template to a brightly decorated ocean scene.

Children also took part in a free ‘Finding Dory’ underwater crafts and colouring competition to win a family ticket to see the new Pixar film at Cineworld Cinemas in Ashton.

If you missed out then worry not, because the mural and the chance to win tickets is returning next Tuesday, August 9th.

In conjunction to the event, shoppers can also visit the Centre’s Facebook page for the opportunity to win a second family ticket to see the much-anticipated sequel to Finding Nemo.

To enter, Facebook users need to like the Facebook page at and answer the question ‘who would you search the ocean to find!’
