Special Easter event happening at St George’s Shopping Centre in Harrow

St George’s Shopping Centre in Harrow is bringing back its free kids’ club for Easter half term.

This club, which debuted in summer 2023 with two superhero themed events, is returning for Easter 2024 to coincide with new releases at the centre’s Vue cinema.

On Saturday 30th March, families can join in on the “Kick Like a Panda” event, where the School of Kung Fu, Harrow will offer lessons and demonstrations in self-defence. Martial artists will be stationed on level 2 next to Puttstars.

Then, on the 6th of April, the “Fly Like a Butterfly” event will take place. Families can participate in free workshops outside of H&M Kids to plant their very own butterfly garden using biodegradable pots.

Northwick Park Community Garden will also be present on level 2 next to Puttstars, providing educational opportunities.

There will also be a stilt-walking butterfly roaming the event, taking photos with shoppers. By sharing photos on social media with the hashtag #FlyLikeAButterflyStGs, attendees have the chance to win four tickets to Vue cinema in Harrow to see Butterfly Tale.

Eleri Kyffin, who helps to lead the Northwick Park Community Garden initiative, said: “We can’t wait to share our love for nature in our upcoming workshop! We’re a community of gardening and nature enthusiasts who love working with nature to create an organic garden based on Permaculture principles.

“Working in harmony with nature brings numerous benefits to gardens and the environment. We’re always striving to increase the biodiversity in our garden, and we’re really excited to teach kids about the wonderful things that pollinators, like butterflies, do for our planet,” she added.

St. George’s Centre Manager said: “Sustainability is really important to us at St.George’s, and we are constantly reviewing processes to make our operations more sustainable. Recently, we have launched our coffee grounds initiative where we are working with our food and beverage retailers to ensure their waste grounds can be given a second life in gardens.”
