Make the most of your summer staycation by paying a visit to the beach at Westfield Shopping Centre, which will be hosting a huge programme of events for all ages in July and August 2009. With live music, free makeovers, and plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained, the Shimmer 09 festival celebrates Westfield's first summer in style. Beach at Westfield Shopping Centre With the uncertain economic situation of late meaning that more and more families are choosing to holiday at home this year, London is going all out to make sure that there's plenty of inexpensive and fun things to do over the great British summer. Starting from Monday 20th July 2009, the beach at Westfield Shopping Centre will transform The Atrium into an archetypical British summer seaside, complete with beach huts, a beach bar, kids' play area and a band stand that will host a number of live performances. And you don't even have to worry about picking your way through loads of sand. Kids' beach Children's television favourite Peppa Pig will be making a special appearance on Monday 27th July, on a day when kids can take part in treasure hunts and a colouring competition at the seaside themed area. Later on in the Shimmer 09 season of events, stars from the Nick Jr. show Yo Gabba Gabba will be entertaining the little ones, on Tuesday 11th August. On the Southside area of the beach, games fans can try their hands at the Nintendo Wii MotionPlus from 20th July - 26th July, and the Nintendo Wii Sports Island from 12th August - 16th August. Live music Live music events at the beach at Westfield Shopping Centre include a performance by the Dolly Rockers from 7pm - 9pm on Thursday 23rd July, and a special appearance by 80's comeback pop group A-ha at 1pm on Tuesday 28th July. The band stand will also be hosting live music from VV Brown from 7pm - 9pm on Thursday 30th July. Beach huts and beach bar Many of the shops at Westfield will also be putting on special events at the beach huts and beach bar areas throughout Shimmer 09. The House of Fraser will be offering free makeovers and skin consultations, the Ginger Group will be handing out some top tips on how to have beautifully maintained summer hair, and there will also be Fire & Stone pizza tastings and fresh crepes from Crepeaffaire.
