Thunderbirds Are Go takes centre stage at Regatta

October half term activity rolled out to 20 stores in the UK and Ireland.

ITV Studios Global Entertainment and Regatta Great Outdoors are putting their Thunderbirds Are Go collaboration centre stage this October half term.

A raft of activity includes window displays, in-store POS, competitions and special offers, running across 20 stores in the UK and Ireland.

Running until October 29, a competition gives fans the chance to win one of five Amazon Fire Kids tablets and a year’s subscription to Amazon Prime.

In-store POS kits have also been installed in 50 branches of The Range.

The brand has also teamed up with Fun Kids Radio for a competition which will be broadcast to its DAB radio and podcast audience. Fully-branded pages on its website, email inclusions and social media mentions will call out more details on the collaboration.

The 22-piece autumn/winter 17 collection includes t-shirts, fleeces, jackets, hats, gloves and scarfs in sizes 3-12 yrs. Specially-designed swingtickets and end-of-arm display cards call out the features of each product referencing the iconic Thunderbird vehicles.
