A shopping centre brought the festive spirit to life with it's all-day kickstart Christmas event.

The Baytree Shopping Centre and the Brentwood Business Partnership (BBP) joined forces to host a day out for families on Saturday, involving businesses and retailers.

From a lucky dip to win prizes from businesses such as Holland and Barrett, WHSmiths, Better Gym, to children’s activities like arts and crafts workshops, glitter face-painting and magical storytime with Mrs Clause, hosted by the Chicken and Frog Bookshop, there was plenty going on to keep everyone entertained.

There were also performances from kids dance troupe Razzamattaz, Big Sing choir and a chance to take a few selfies next to the Christmas flower wall.

The Grinch and a couple of gingerbread men even popped in to say hello to everyone!

A spokeswoman for the shopping centre said: “Baytree’s Christmas event was a huge success for all the community.

“We had lots of activities, including Christmas colouring, chocolate giving and giant Gingerbread hugs.

“Even the Grinch had some Christmas spirit!”
