Chadstone Inaugural launch of festive season spectacular
27th Nov 2014-11-27

Tis the season to be jolly, that is for sure and a place to really get your jungle bells ringing this festive season is Chadstone Shopping Centre- the Fashion Capital!

Yesterday morning we were invited along to Chadstone Shopping Centre to kick off their Chadstone Christmas Stories. And I wont lie when I got home I started preparing our house for the Christmas set up on the 1st of December.

All things bright and beautiful have come alive at Chadstone – The Fashion Capital this Christmas with the launch of the first-ever Chadstone Christmas Stories.

A bespoke pantomime created especially for the centre to reflect its status as the destination for Australia’s most magical Christmas experience, the Chadstone Christmas Stories will delight shoppers right through to 23 December, in daily not-to-be-missed performances taking place on the lower level outside David Jones.


So the story is based on a young boy, whose name is Charlie and his teddy bear Chad. You follow him on a short journey as he discovers the magic on the night before Christmas.

All this happens around the interactive Red Energy Christmas tree which lights up through the kinetic energy funnelled through technologically-enhanced floor pads. There are three floor pads on the ground and as you dance on them, or even stand on them the light display on the tree interact with what you are doing- the quicker you stomp your feet the quicker the lights flash. Madison had quite a lot of fun dancing around on the pads and watching the tree change.


Also on the morning Chadstone made a donation of $15,000 in recognition of Berry Street to help recognize their important work with children and families around Australia.

Chadstone will also be gifting Berry Street $10,000 worth of presents in support of their Berry Christmas Gifting Appeal in addition to a host of experiences; including tickets to the Chadstone Christmas Stories for Berry Street Foster Families as well as dance school scholarships in conjunction with event partners Patrick Studios Australia.

It was so special to see such a big centre such as Chadstone recognise a charity like Berry Street, it touched my heart knowing there are children out there that couldn’t sit around the tree all dressed in their best like we did that morning.


Booking are essential for the performance as there are special meet and greets available after each show, so you can snap up some photos with your favourites.

The festivities also didn’t end there. Throughout Chadstone Shopping Centre there are beautiful festive decoarations and beautiful tree displays.


Located 100m down from where this Christmas Show takes place you will find Santa's workshop, where you can have your photo's taken with Santa. We didn't get the chance to have our photo taken though as we had to do the school run- here is what Madison thought of that (sorry Mad's haha).


In an Australian first the amazing Tiffany & Co will dazzle shoppers with their giant Tiffany & Co themed tree- this was Madison’s favourite and I must say mine as well.

You cannot miss this tree; it is located in the luxury precinct, opposite Tiffany & Co.


Chadstone also understands that around Christmas workers seem to work longer hours and it is a chaotic time. So they have tried to ease the stress of Christmas shopping by EXTENDING their hours.

Extended Trading Hours will give you something to sing about.

 As of the 11 December, the centre open non-stop from 8am 23 December to 6pm 24 December.
