Dust off your Gruffalo outfit and practise your growling for Red Nose Day!

Macmillan Children’s Books has announced that the nation’s favourite monster, The Gruffalo, will be hosting a Red Nose Day fundraising party in his Deep Dark Wood in the North Atrium at Westfield, London on Wednesday 23rd February – and everyone brave enough is invited to come along.

Visitors will be treated to games and activities from 10am until 5pm; two Gruffalo shows, with a reading of The Gruffalo book by special guest, TV presenter Edith Bowman; plus fabulous prizes for the best Gruffalo costume and the scariest “Grrrrrrr!”

The Gruffalo shows will be at 1pm and 4pm, and are free, but with space limited, make sure you collect your tickets early from The Gruffalo’s Deep Dark Wood to ensure a good position in the golden circle! (200 golden circle tickets are available for each show.)

Visit for information about how you can get involved, lots of other fundraising ideas and activities, and a video of the Gruffalo doing something funny for money!
