‘Build a Buddy’ Workshop

Posted: Nov 04, 2019



14th and 15th December, 2019


This December, The Build a Buddy workshop will be making a return to The Heart Shopping Centre, Walton on Thames.  Children will get the chance to create their very own Christmas Buddy that they can cherish forever.

Due to popular demand from our Easter Workshop the Christmas one will take place for two days!! Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th December between 10am and 4pm inside The Heart Shopping Centre. This Christmas themed event will give children of all ages the chance to create their own soft toy from scratch. They will be able to choose between a Reindeer, Polar Bear or Husky. In addition, little ones can add a unique christmassy edge to their buddy by designing it’s very own t-shirt and giving it a name certificate. 

To ensure all children who attend can take part we do ask that you pre-book a time slot for this activity. Slots are available every 30 minutes - sessions are limited to 15 children per session.

As part of The Heart Shopping Centre Kids’ Club, children will also have the chance to get free Glitter Tattoos from our partner ‘C Beauty and Glitter Tattoos’ who is back by popular demand following our Halloween event.  

Mark Middleton, Centre Manager at The Heart Shopping Centre comments;  ‘ This event was such a success at Easter so we decided it should make a return this Christmas and we are so excited for it to happen again. Children who attend the workshops will leave with an excellent memory. We have received excellent feedback from our events over the past year and we are looking to build on this going forward in 2020. I would like to remind visitors that they will need to pre-book their slot for the ‘build a buddy’ workshop as numbers are limited. Those who do not pre-book a space cannot be guaranteed a buddy but can still take advantage of the other activities taking place.”
