The Brewery is the Ultimate Festive Destination this Christmas with Visits from The Grinch and Real Reindeers

We’re pleased to announce that everyone’s favourite mean greenie, The Grinch, will be making special appearances at the centre this Christmas. This larger-than-life character, who is adored by all ages, will bring his sassy antics, comedic timing, and iconic Christmas style to Romford on Saturday 25th November and Saturday 9th December.

In particular, The Grinch will be causing mayhem throughout the centre between 1pm and 4pm on Saturday 25th November – he will be freely roaming so you need to catch him before he sulks elsewhere.  Then on 9th December between 1pm and 4pm you can catch him on the first floor outside Zizzi’s for the ultimate cheeky selfie.

This Christmas we have also partnered with Romford BID who have arranged for Santa’s Reindeers to visit the Brewery on Sunday 10th December between 12pm – 4pm, for you to meet (and maybe even pet).

In celebration of the biggest film of the year, WONKA, which is out on the 8th December, the centre has also created a Willy Wonka inspired backdrop set for shoppers to pose within for a memorable selfie. This will be located outside Vue cinema from the 13th December.

All character and reindeer appearances, on every day detailed, will be completely FREE for you to enjoy and admire.

Bunkers, Kidspace and Namco are also now taking Christmas bookings for fun filled party activity. Plus, from 9am to 11am, between Monday 18th December – Thursday 21st December, Kidspace will be hosting Breakfast with Santa. Get your tickets & more information here.

Visitors can also enjoy live music here at the Centre with surprise musical performances from local musicians during December.  Then after enjoying the festive fun, you can grab a bite to eat and drink at one of the centre’s incredible eateries, including Frankie & Benny’s, TGI Fridays, Pizza Express, Turtle Bay and Zizzi.
