Come down and celebrate the festive season with a day full of activities suited to all ages. Let the St Kilda community join together to appreciate family and friends in a fun an exciting way.

Sue Defina, Acland Court Shopping Centre manager is looking forward to the event; “Christmas is a time for the community of St Kilda to all come together” she says, ‘and Acland Court provides the perfect location to do so.

JOY 94.9 will be broadcasting live from 12noon until 3pm. Tune in to hear interviews about things such as Christmas foods from around the world and quirky last minute gift ideas. St Kilda can be a tourist haven, and these interviews will be highlighting all the different cuisines available. Make sure you don’t miss out on all the best advice on how to stay on top of the chaotic Christmas period!

The festivities start at 11am, with entertainment and balloon modelling from Crumpette the Clown and free face painting from Fairy the Moth. Those participating in the fun are encouraged to make donations towards Acland Court’s charity Sacred Heart Mission, even if it’s just a gold coin. This is Acland Court’s fourth year in partnership with Sacred Heart Mission. The charity offers a variety of services and basic necessities; reconnecting those that are disadvantaged or homeless with community life. ‘Christmas is a time of giving, so this is the perfect way to help those less fortunate’ says Sue Defina, ‘it is a great charity that helps those that aren’t as lucky as we are’.

Originally opened in 1999, Acland Court has grown to be one of St Kilda’s most popular shopping centres. The centre offers 15 diverse retailers and three levels of secure undercover parking with wheelchair access (car park open from 6 AM to 12 midnight).
