VIDEO game favourite Red from the Angry Birds will drop by intu Merry Hill later this week.

Red Bird will make an appearance at the shopping centre on Friday July 26 to mark the upcoming release of the new ‘The Angry Birds Movie 2’ early next month.

Red will perch at the lower mall near H Samuel at intervals throughout the day at 11am, 12 noon, 1pm, 2:30pm and 3:10pm, where Angry Birds superfans can try their best not to ruffle his feathers.

Robert Pickersgill, marketing manager at intu Merry Hill, said: “The summer holidays is probably one of the most exciting times of the year for children, but they also provide a great chance for families to enjoy quality time together. Through the various exciting events we host for our intu Family Club members throughout the year, we’re creating the perfect environment for families to make some happy memories at the centre.

“We’re sure Red will be a hit with children and parents alike and we’re committed to creating moments of surprise and delight for our shoppers to make sure they have a great experience every time they shop with us.”
