Grafton Centre ‘will be more entertaining’
Cambridge’s refurbished Grafton Centre will not just be about a better ‘shopping experience’, bosses there say – it will also be about entertainment too.
As the News has revealed, owners Legal & General Property plan to spend £18.5 million on revamping the shopping centre, including building a new entrance in Fitzroy Street, bringing in new retailers, improving shop fronts and replacing the notoriously leaky roof with a glazed ceiling.
Speaking at a press conference about the development, Christine Dunmore, of London-based marketing firm Portland, said: “The aim is to make the Grafton a great place for people to shop, with popular High Street stores, but with an edge.
“The Grafton already has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment, with the Vue cinema complex, and the Great Court is a cavernous space for staging events. Other shopping centres in the city don’t have that.
