We kicked off November with the legendary Wombles and a trip to Glasgow for the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference. Orinoco, Alderney & Great Uncle Bulgaria were invited to support the UK government’s Together for Our Planet campaign to encourage all of us to go #OneStepGreener for the planet. You can find out more about the campaign here.
Brand Licensing Europe returned to Excel from 17-19 November, which also saw the comeback of the celebrated character parade. The halls were once again filled with a host of famous characters including Bluey & Bingo, Baby Shark, PAW Patrol, The Gruffalo & Zog much to the delight of show organisers, licensors and visitors alike.
We are also thrilled to be taking the Elves Behavin’ Badly on tour this Winter, where Elfie & Elvie will be treating Christmas shoppers to festive games including Charades, Musical Snowman and Guess the Present. Having already visited Royal Priors in Leamington Spa, Southside Shopping Centre in Wandsworth, Manor Walks in Cramlington and Braehead in Glasgow, check out the list below to find out where the cheeky elves will be causing mischief next… as well as lots of other character events that are sure to spread some Christmas cheer…
