The Metrognomes

The Metrognomes are intu Metrocentre’s very own centre characters called Herbert, Sherbet, Maggot and Rusty, plus Rusty’s pet Metroshoposaurus, who all live here at the centre!

The Metrognomes entertain children (and parents!) on the malls with FREE shows and activities during school holidays. Every show is interactive and great fun, with opportunities for young ones to sing, dance and get involved.

Head of Fun

It’s a difficult job, but we’ve found someone to do it! After searching the whole North East for cool, creative and confident kids, hundreds of applications began flying in from posters and poems to songs and dances. The decision was very tough and with much thought and deliberation, we appointed our Heads of Fun for 2017!

Meet Ben, aged 7 and Connie, aged 6.

About Herbert

Hi there!

I'm Herbert and I live in Forestland. I have a bright green beard and I look after Green Mall at intu Metrocentre. My best friend is Sam the Sparrow. He lives in Green Mall too, although he's not supposed to. You may be able to spot him on your next visit! He comes and lives in my roof every night.

Where I live

I live in Forestland underneath the Green Mall at intu Metrocentre. I live in a big tree house and have a garden full of trees and flowers. I love my house in Green Mall. My good friends, the bees, come along to visit and make honey for us all which is lovely on toast or crumpets. Sherbet often uses it for his cooking!

I love my garden and I like to care for the environment, I talk to the plants in my garden to help them grow big and strong and when Sherbet, Maggot and Rusty come to visit I give them my beautiful flowers from my graden.

I'm in a recycling club with the rest of the Metrognomes. Why don't you try recycling too?

My favourite things

  • Forest creatures
  • Decorating trees
  • Working in my garden
  • My treehouse
  • Flowers
  • Planting herbs, vegetables and shrubs and watching them grow
  • And of course, anything green
