Southside One Great Day: Our Christmas launch event and festive celebration for charity!

We're inviting you to One Great Day

Saturday 16th November

12pm – 6pm

 

We’re kicking off the festive season at Southside Shopping Centre with the One Great Day, our Christmas launch event, which sees the town centre ignite with the spirit of Christmas!

One Great Day is an opportunity to raise money for charity and have a great day doing it! We're inviting communities and families across Wandsworth and beyond to come together at Southside Shopping Centre to get involved in a day of family fun – supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital and other children's charities. 

We have a target of £3,000 to raise for Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Childhood Trust and other children’s charities so if you enjoy the entertainment, please drop a few quid in the charity collection buckets located around the centre. 

Read on for what you have to look forward to on the night and register for your Treat Card now.

Free giveaways and walking surprises 

Remember the stilt walking Nutcracker from last year's amazing event? Well, he's back! Don’t forget to say hello to him or the roller-skating ballerinas! 

We'll also have a visit from Stormtroopers, a magician, our rollerskating pudding is back, plus we have a magical Frozen surprise for everyone. 

We will be handing out complimentary treats including mince pies, candy canes, and mistletoes! 

Treat stations

The best fun will be at our Treat Stations! We will have six Treat Stations throughout the centre. These stations will host activities customers can enjoy at their leisure throughout the day including: A Silent Disco, virtual reality sleigh ride, festive mulled wine, a glitter and braid bar plus more. See the full schedule below

The treats will accommodate a limited number of people on a first-come-first-served basis and you MUST have your treat card to gain access to any of the stations. Make sure you fill in the form above.

Your Treat Card

The treat card will give you access to three of the six Treat Stations that will be located in different parts of the centre. You will have access to three stations only and the treat Card is limited to one adult per family.

This gives all customers a chance to enjoy a fair amount as all activities will be very popular. Please pre-register for your Treat Card using the form above. Once registered, you’ll receive an email, which you must show on the day to pick up your Treat Card from the One Great Day Welcome Desk.
