DENNIS the Menace got up to mall sorts of mischief at intu Braehead.
The comic rascal was playing pranks and causing chaos everywhere he went as he launched a Big Beano Takeover of the shopping centre.
From Thursday, July 30 to Sunday, August 9, Dennis and his Menace Squad will be involved in a host of free kids activities, give-a-ways and competitions in what they’ve dubbed The Classroom of Chaos.
Youngsters will be taking their seats behind their desks in the mall’s central atrium where they can become Little Menaces by taking part in games, arts and crafts and lots of other prankster activities.
And there’s a special treat for fans of the Beano comic when one of the mag’s top cartoonists and writers hosts a cartoon illustration workshop in the Classroom of Chaos on Saturday, August 8, at 10.30am, 1pm and 3pm.
