A whispering tree will help make wishes come true at Cavendish Square this festive season.

The shopping centre’s initiative is in partnership with Toys R Us and the Reach for a Dream Foundation. Kids can visit the tree – which, as its name suggests, talks – on the lower level in the centre court and make a wish inside the crevice of the tree.

The shopping centre’s kids activation event for Christmas, called the World of Wonder, kicks off on Wednesday 18 December and continues until Sunday 22 December.

Kids will enjoy a taste of theatre with the magical puppet show, and can do some arts and craft while sending off a gift to a little dreamer who is fighting a life-threatening disease.

The entry fee to the World of Wonder is R30 and includes a Toys R Us gift voucher and a Spur meal voucher.

All proceeds will be donated to The Reach for a Dream Foundation.

Santa will also stop by at Cavendish Square on these dates. Children who would like to have their picture taken with the man in red will find him on the first floor near Sunglass Hut.

World of Wonder and the Santa photo booth will be open from 11:00 to 16:00.

The Philharmonia Choir of Cape Town will ring in the spirit of Christmas with popular carols in the centre court, starting from 18:30 on 21 to 23 December and from 17:30 on 24 December.

While at the shopping centre, shoppers can get gifts professionally wrapped with an option of modern or traditional gift wrap. The gift wrapping stations are located on the first floor near H&M and the ground floor near Clicks. All proceeds generated at the gift wrap booth will be donated to The Cape of Good Hope SPCA.

The shopping centre will be open from 09:00 to 21:00 until 23 December for the festive season.
