The fun kicks off on Saturday 9th December when the centre plays host to a special giant walkabout polar bear, who will be on hand to pose for photos and help get little shoppers into the Christmas spirit. After meeting with the centre's festive character, youngsters are encouraged to take advantage of The Broadwalk's free face painter, who will transform them into any of their favourite Christmas characters.

The festive fun continues on Saturday 16th December when The Broadwalk Centre's elves will be getting ready for the arrival of the big man himself. Children are invited to get creative and help make Santa's grotto out of recycled materials during a Santa set-building workshop.

As part of The Broadwalk's ongoing 'Love Your World' campaign, children will get the opportunity to design giant candy canes, an igloo, and a special snowman - ready for Santa to meet with Edgware boys and girls the following weekend.

Santa will be visiting The Broadwalk from Friday 22nd December until Christmas Eve when all good boys and girls are invited to pop along and tell him exactly what they'd like to receive.

All Christmas events at The Broadwalk are free of charge and will run from 12pm until 4pm every day.
