Getting Festive At Hyde Park Corner

The tree is decorated, the lights are sparkling, and the Festive Season is officially underway at Joburg’s Best Shopping Centre… Hyde Park Corner where a #MadeForYou shopping experience awaits.

A Christmas Wonderland

It doesn’t get more festive than an entire store dedicated to Christmas – and not just any old Christmas shopping, a shopping experience at Nicholas & Co. is a curated collection of Christmas décor, bakeware, signature scents, unique collectables (don’t miss out on the quirky Jim Shore collection of The Grinch) and a brand-new collection of Ulster Weavers table linen. This store has been transformed into a world of festive cheer where each themed tree is adorned in glass baubles, classic finials, elegant bows and moving trains to create the romance we all cherish at Christmas with a trendy twist.

Date: Until Saturday, 24 December 2022

Venue: Lower Mall

Closest Parking Level: Entrance 2


Gingerbread is one of the trademarks of the Festive Season and this year The Park Bakery, a life-sized gingerbread house, takes pride of place in the Centre Court at Hyde Park Corner. Here kids of all ages are invited to join in our gingerbread decorating workshops where ‘Gingerbread Elves’ will be on hand to guide the little ones in the art of decorating their cookies! Each child will receive a DIY kit which includes not one, but FIVE gingerbread cookies. All the toppings and decorations are provided too. And because it is the season of giving, there is no cost to participate in the workshops plus you get to take your creations home!

Date: Every weekend Friday to Sunday on 2 to 4 December, 9 to 11 December and 16 to 17 December 2022
