The activation, which took place from 22-23 October, distributed loaves of Hovis Best of Both alongside coupons and sandwiches, with a choice of cheese, jam and ham.

There was also Trolls-themed activities for families, including Trolls activity tables with activity sheets for the kids to do and a Trolls cut out photo moment.

Hovis also ran a competition with a private screening of Trolls for up to 100 people as the prize.

AB InBev, the brewing company with a portfolio of brands including Stella Artois, Budweiser and Corona, opened a beer-inspired bakery in east London last year.
