Our Third London ShopUp Starts Tomorrow!

Our third London ShopUp event starts tomorrow and we couldn’t be more excited to share the fun with you! We have so much going on this year, so we want to give you a quick overview of what to expect. Let’s start with the most important part: the shopping!


We have gathered fifty incredible shops together for you this year. You will find everything from pyjamas, to books, to stocking stuffers, and more! You can start and finish ALL of your shopping in one fell swoop!

Santa’s Grotto:

Santa’s grotto will be open from 12:00-17:30 on Thursday and 12:00-18:00 on Friday. Santa has been shopping at Hedgehog so you know that his toys will be especially good this year! There is no need to pre-book; just sign up when you arrive. Tickets are £10 and include a gift and photo.



The Mamahood has done such an incredible job of putting together our workshops, that they have all sold out! That being said, we will still have two, super fun, mini workshops running in the cafe both Thursday and Friday. You can read more about those on the Mamahood site.

Wrapping Station:

We have paired up with the incredible charity mothers2mothers to bring you a gift wrapping station! If you like brown paper packages tied up with string, then this will be for you. The best part is that your donation will help this truly exceptional charity in their quest to prevent and treat mother-to-child transmission of HIV.

Braid Bar:

Both kids and grownups can enjoy braids from Ruuby! They have prepared a special braid menu just for us, with styles that are picture perfect for a mini photo shoot with Maud!


Activity Centre:

The incredibly creative minds behind Starting With Art have put together the most amazing interactive art project for your little ones! They have also organised a gorgeous colouring sheet for our shopping guides.

We know that many of you aren’t free during the day, which is why we have planned an evening of late night shopping tomorrow (Thursday) night! Bubbles from our favourite German winery Weinreich will be flowing, and we will be handing out festive mini cupcakes from Primrose Bakery (who will be selling cupcakes in the cafe!). We will be open until 21:00, so please stop by! Entry is free!
