A ginger bread house has been created for the Touchwood Centre in Solihull by food artist Prudence Staite. You can see it now in Touchwood until Sunday 27th December.
The house takes centre stage in The Atrium and its giving Touchwood a very Christmassy ginger aroma. It measures 9ft tall and 8ft wide that includes a mound of gingerbread bricks, candy canes and a huge amount of icing.
The Gingerbread House is another reason to go along to Solihull Town Centre and have a look at the fantastic magical Christmas Festivities on show whilst shopping for those special gifts for family and friends.
On Saturday, December 12 in honour of National Gingerbread House Day, guests to Touchwood will be handed their own gingerbread man to enjoy.
Touchwood are inviting people to take pictures of themselves with gingerbread men anywhere in the centre or at home, and to upload them to the Touchwood facebook or twitter page using the hash-tag #Gingersnaps. There's a prize of winning a £50 Touchwood gift card.
It has also been announced that there will be no penquins this year due to pressure from animal rights campaigners.
Touchwood has stated the Penguin Encounter is an educational event featuring endangered Humboldt penguins, but this had been misunderstood. The campaigners have viewed that the penquins are at risk and "animals like penquins do not belong on a high street in the UK and the event does nothing to teach about conservation or respect for species and habitat"
