Dinosaur Fun At Wimbledon's Centre Court

Half-term activities for children

Prehistoric fun for youngsters is planned at Wimbledon's Centre Court Shopping Centre this half term including a chance to get crafty with dinosaur-inspired arts workshops.

The centre's adopted charity, Volunteer Centre Merton, is also set to benefit from a packed week of activities with shoppers asked to make a small donation to take part.

Art and craft workshops run throughout half term for children of all ages and can be found on the lower mall from Monday (February 13) to Friday (February 17) at 11am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm.

Other fun activities include face painting and balloon modelling which are available each day. There's also a dinosaur quiz competition for children to tax their brains about creatures which used to roam the earth. Prizes are a selection of dinosaur goodies.

Centre Court Shopping Centre marketing manager Samantha Brown said: "Children can have great fun with dinosaurs, it’s something a bit different – we hope youngsters very much enjoy our activities to help them discover a lost world.

"It would be great to see plenty of people come and support our local centre with the chance to try out our activities, we’re proud to be able to offer them and support a great local charity at the same time."
