Ian Cooper, Head of Marketing at SunLife says:

We think financial services should be simple, straightforward and affordable for everyone.  Working with the Daily Mirror on the Pop-up show is a good way to talk to more people and find out what they want from their savings, insurance and protection.  We want the Family Finances events to be an informal, engaging way for families to get answers to their money questions, with lots of tips on slashing bills and the best discounts and deals, as well as practical ideas on how to get children into the savings habit and the best ways to save for retirement.  It will be a great way to spend an hour or two in a relaxed, friendly space.

Our Pop-Up offers you money-can’t-buy one-to-one time with our financial specialists over a cuppa in our vintage-style cafe.

You can relax in our chilled garden while youngsters create a pumpkin plant from our free kit.

Have a go at our Game of Choices, the light-hearted way to tackle the subject that no one really likes to bring up, and you can have a giggle at our Magic Mirror with fun props to help you compose a set of take-home-and-keep pictures.

Join the Daily Mirror's Personal Finance Editor, Tricia Phillips, and independent finance expert Andrew Hagger for speedy 15-minute financial fixes.  They will be dishing out pearls of wisdom and tips and hacks on everything from how to become a savvy saver to planning for a happy retirement.

And they will be giving out on-the-spot cash prizes as well as treats and games for all the family. 

Andrew Hagger says:
