Geoffrey Hobbs-East, Retail Park Manager at St James, Dover said: “On the whole, the last 15 months have been really successful – from opening with Cineworld to welcoming Nando’s, The Entertainer and most recently Kaspa’s – St James has continued to grow.

“I think St James has done a great job for the town of Dover and has been popular since it opened.

“Our first birthday is an opportunity for us to thank our shoppers and bring them together for this special event. I’m looking forward to it a lot and hope as many people as possible can join us at St James for what will be a great day.”

The £53 million and 157,000 sq ft centre, at St James Street, had a phased opening over several months.
