EALING Broadway shopping centre has begun its schedule of Christmas entertainment, featuring live music, the return of the festive food market, roaming seasonal characters, a snow machine and decorations around the centre.

Every Saturday in the lead-up to Christmas from 11am-4pm, there will be live music on the Town Square Christmas stage. The centre is inviting musicians, community choirs, budding bands and potential pop stars to perform on stage.
