Near Wagamama on Level 2

Who says there's no such thing as a Gruffalo? On Friday 25 August from 11am to 3:30pm our favourite storybook character The Gruffalo will be with us for little kids and big kids alike to snap a photo with. The Gruffalo will appear at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm.

The meet and greets will take place upstairs on Level 2 by Wagamama.

The event is completely free, but you will need to collect your wristband at 9am from our Customer Service Desk on Friday 25 August. These will be given out on a first come first served basis for all of the performances that day.
