Cresta knows that finding the right Christmas gifts can be challenging during the festive season, and to help you, Cresta has launched the Cresta Digital Magazine, offering a complete gifting guide filled with the latest deals and trends to make your shopping experience a more pleasurable one. Go take a look on Cresta's website.

Safe Shopping This Holiday Season

Cresta has taken steps to ensure that shoppers enjoy every aspect of their experience by upgrading their security for the festive rush and equipping their well-known brand ambassadors with all the necessary information to ensure a smooth visit and address any matters related to the centre.

Festive Fun For The Whole Family

Johannesburg Academy for Theatre Arts

It’s more than shopping, it’s an entertainment destination for the whole family. Cresta has partnered with Johannesburg Academy for Theatre Arts (JATA) to bring little ones dance, singing and storytelling classes that they can partake in while you shop. The JATA classes will be held at the Upper Level Food Court next to Mugg & Bean from 09 December 2019, registration is on a first come first served basis, so be sure to get there early.

Children can be dropped off from 08:00, however, the classes will run from 08:30 – 13:00. Classes are presented by accredited teachers and industry professionals. This feature will be a hit for parents working throughout the festive holiday and for parents who want to focus on festive shopping without the stress of worrying over their bundle of joy.

For ease and convenience, parents can pre-book by email on [email protected]. There will also be individual hour-long classes that can be booked directly at the venue in the afternoons for R50 per class. Parents or guardians will be required to stay with their children during these classes.

Young Engineers

After successful sessions last year, Young Engineers will be back at Cresta with their cool Young Engineers Holiday Programme, suitable for children 6 years and older.

Young Engineers offers engaging, hands-on learning activities using uniquely designed LEGO® and K’nex® assembly kits. The activities are fun and fashionable. Young Engineers will be available at Cresta from 9 December to 22 December 2019, offering 1.5 hour sessions at R100 per session. Parents can book directly online.

Festive Cheer Around Cresta

Shoppers can also look out for a variety of surprise musical performances from the popular Amakhonto We Sintu and The Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra.

This time of year is all about giving, which is why Cresta has made giving back so much easier with their Charitable Festive Tree. This kindness corner (near the Loads of Livings Court) is a bookshelf tree and reading corner that allows shoppers to donate new or pre-loved books that will be donated to a children’s home in the Cresta Community. Stories for children will be read to those looking for a moment to pause and relax in between shopping – at 09:00, 11:00, 13:00, 15:00 and 17:00. Moreover, to also help improve the under-resourced children’s home, shoppers can also donate pre-loved or new educational materials and toys such as building toys and picture books to stimulate learning and development.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without photos with Santa. Pop into the Lower Level FNB Court and snap a picture with Santa. You can also get all your gifts wrapped at Cresta’s FREE wrapping stations located throughout the centre.
