Summer of fun

We've got family fun, dinosaurs and live music as summer-time highlights. Put these unmissable events in your calendars…   

Pop-up Park


Find the two Pop-up Park areas outside Debenhams and Primark. Pull up a deck chair and relax in our chill out zone, while admiring your purchases in those shopping bags. 

The Best of Thanet


From Friday 12th-Saturday 13th July we’re hosting a special event here at Westwood Cross with stalls from the best visitor and tourist attractions in the area. Come and discover what’s happening in Thanet.

Alice at Westwoodland


Enjoy Alice at Westwoodland family entertainment from 29th July to 12th August. Be prepared to be charmed by the wonderful world of Alice and friends.

Dinosaur Takeover


The dinosaurs are returning to Westwood Cross from Wednesday 21st August – Sunday 1st September 2019. Come and take a selfie with our awe-inspiring dinosaurs, who have returned to our shopping centre by popular demand. You’ll find our Jurassic friends and dino eggs at the pop-up park near Debenhams. Then share your Westwood Cross dinosaur photos in the Dinopark using #WWXDino. Plus, take part in Bearosaurus’ dino egg hunt and be rewarded with a dino reflector!

Bring the Little Bears to life! 

You’ll find posters on display throughout the centre with our Little Bears’ Snapchat codes on them. Scan the codes and the bears will come to life. It's lots of fun! Collect a map from Guest Services. It's a great way to keep the kids entertained this summer while you shop.

Listen to live music


Back by popular demand, come and enjoy ska and reggae classics performed by lead singer and founding member of The Dualers, Tyber Cranstoun. He’ll be at Westwood Cross on Saturday 13th July.



Meet and listen to local authors at this Open Author Signing Fair on Sunday 14th July. This is a FREE event where you can ask for authors’ autographs. We’ve got a great line up of poets, writers and novelists who are here to open your minds to new literature.

Shopping with your children is a whole lot more fun when you hire a Kiddy Car for them to zip around in.
