Summer for kids has officially hit Westfield London Shopping Centre - throughout July and August, the temperature will rise in the Capital with back-to-back events taking over Europe’s largest shopping and leisure destination.
From Saturday 23rd July, Westfield London will be transformed into a scorching hotspot for six weeks, with live appearances of favourite kid’s characters including Ben 10, Tinga Tinga Tales and Thomas the Tank Engine. What’s more, every Saturday and Sunday, kids and parents can watch selected films for 95p at Vue Westfield London with the Kids AM offer.
Once the kids have had their fun, why not treat yourself to a summer wardrobe with over 750 fashion brands to be found and summer sales throughout most stores. While Hollister & Co, The Apple Store and Topshop will no doubt keep the teen fashionistas in style this summer, The Little White Company, Mamas & Papas and Bebe Bisou will have newborns and toddlers looking tip top.
