Named after the main tennis court for the Wimbledon Championship, Centre Court Shopping Centre opened in 1992. With sixty big name shops, cafes, and pop-up stalls, it is the focal point of Wimbledon's town centre and attracts eight million visitors each year. Now the retail hub is all grown up, as this month it reaches its twenty-first birthday.
Celebrations will start on Saturday 21st September; there will be live music by community groups like the Wimbledon Rock Choir and Wimbledon Light Operatic Group, who will be singing the way to the birthday countdown at 1pm.
Enjoy street performances, family entertainment, face painting and lots of cake. Best of all, there will be Shoe Shrine on the first floor, which is giving away hundreds of new shoes. All you have to do is be that lucky Cinderella. If the shoe fits, you can have it.
There will be more fun with fashion on the 28th September, when there will be a dance fashion show showcasing outfits from all the clothes retailers. Find out what garbs will suit you best at the style advice clinic and pampering lounge.
