Selfie factory in Bluewater, Greenhithe opens

by Lauren Abbott

Instagrammers will be striking a pose whilst shopping as Kent's first selfie factory opens at Bluewater.

Featuring a giant ball pit, doughnut wall, confetti cove and more, the pop-up exhibit is one of the first of its kind in the country.

The selfie factory is arriving in Greenhithe following successful runs in both Brighton and Shoreditch.

The quirky experience for avid selfie-takers will allow visitors to fill their camera roll with unique photos of themselves and their friends and family as they move through the different backgrounds and settings included.

All installations have been designed to be 'photo friendly' say organisers.

Visitors can choose from a range of backgrounds and props

Director Will Bower said: "Our goal is to create an environment where anyone can come in, have a load of fun over Easter while the kids are off school, and leave with some really cool pictures they can show their friends.

"We’re super excited to welcome Kent residents in and see how creative they get."

Tickets are now on sale to visit the Bluewater installation - with prices starting at £8.99 for an hour's visit or £3.99 for children under five.

The selfie factory also sells unlimited passes, for when 'one hour just isn't enough' to allow keen photographers to come and go as many times as they wish during their day at Bluewater.

These cost £19.99 or £9.99 for under fives.
