Happy 5th Birthday, Trinity!

If you’re one of the first 2,000 people to visit Trinity on Wednesday 21 March at noon, not only will you be able to enjoy a slice of the 3 metre high birthday cake (above), but you will also be given a £5 Trinity Leeds gift card.

The cake, made by The Tattooed Bakers, celebrates not only Trinity itself but also some of Leeds’ famous people and teams, from the Kaiser Chiefs to Nicola Adams and Leeds Rhinos.

Trinity is the only shopping centre ever to be voted on the Cool Brands List – and is the Winner of the Best of The Best Design Awards, International Council for Shopping Centres.
