A RIBBON cutting ceremony and a cheeky glass of fizz are some of the many experiences to welcome TUI to Castlepoint.

The travel company is opening its doors to customers today at the Bournemouth shopping centre.

A spokesperson for the travel agency said: “Come and join us on Friday 14th June from 09.30am Until 6pm.

“The day will be full of exciting activities, including the chance to win some great prizes.

“Plus, for the kids, Captain T will be here to say hi throughout the day. Our team will be ready to help you find your next getaway while you sip a glass of fizz, on us.​”

Last month, TUI landed its second aircraft at Bournemouth Airport for the first time.

TUI also has a travel agent branch in Wimborne Road, Winton, and another in Poole town centre.

There was a store in Saxon Square, Christchurch, until it was closed in May 2021.
