Christmas is fast approaching, and Westfield Stratford City got into the seasonal spirit with its annual Christmas festival.

The Street was turned into a winter wonderland on Saturday, with shoppers able to enjoy free family fun.

Entertainment was provided by street performers performing aerial acrobatics while a variety of musicians including jazz band Santa Baby and the Salvation Army Band played a host of Christmas classics.

There was also the chance to meet Bjorne, a life-sized animatronic polar bear, and hone those dance moves ahead of the office Christmas party with a silent disco.

Younger shoppers could enjoy a range of children’s activities including face painting, hair styling and Christmas story telling.

And it was all for a good cause as well - while the activities were free, the shopping centre used the opportunity to collect donations for Save the Children.
