Can you help us celebrate 50 years of Frenchgate?

In 2018 the Frenchgate Shopping Centre, originally named the Arndale Centre, celebrates its 50th birthday. The centre was officially opened on the 4th October 1968 and over the past 50 years has undergone significant changes, today the centre welcomes over 18 million shoppers and visitors each year. Throughout this landmark year we will be holding lots of celebrations and events, we are also appealing to our customers to share their memories and photos of the centre from its opening to the present day.

Think you could help us?

Why not share your story for a chance to be involved as we celebrate this monumental year. Simply email your story or photos to
