Mrs Claus’ Kitchen

On Saturday 16th December, children helped Mrs Claus in her kitchen and decorated some yummy gingerbread men and Christmas cookies.

Families also joined in with her Christmas carols as she performed throughout the day!

Santa’s Arrival

Santa Claus flew onto Central Square on his sleigh on Saturday 9th December and met the children of Stratford with his cheeky elves. St John’s Church choir also performed on the mall spreading Christmas cheer!

Elf Yourself

On Saturday we had a very special workshop where young shoppers could become a fully certified elf for the day and shoppers could take part in the dancing head station!

There was a lot of festive fun at Stratford Shopping Centre, and you can view some of the photos from the day in our Gallery.

Rethink Remembrance

We teamed up with The Royal British Legion to ask you to#RethinkRemembrance and what the poppy means to you.

Each day over the weekend of Friday 10th, Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th November, we asked you to write message, attach it to a poppy and add the poppy to our giant remembrance wall.

So many of you came down on the day that we raised a massive £2,066 for the Royal British Legion!

Thank you to everyone who came  along and helped contribute to this wonderful cause over the weekend.
