It doesn’t seem long since we had the last Bank Holiday weekend for Easter but it’s time for another - and many people will choose to head out for some retail therapy over the long weekend.

Monday 2 May is a bank holiday - the first of three over the next weeks with 2 and 3 June 2022 for the Queen’s Jubilee being next up.

If you’re off to the Trafford Centre this weekend, here is all you need to know about its opening hours - plus what events are on for all the family this weekend.

The centre will operate during its normal weekend opening hours on Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May.

On Saturday, doors open from 10am to 9pm, and on Sunday the centre will open from 12pm to 6pm.

However, on Bank Holiday Monday 2 May, the centre will change its normal weekday opening hours slightly. It is then open from 10am to 8pm.
