Scrat at Greenwich Shopping Park

Popular Ice Age character Scrat – known for being the plucky cross between a squirrel and a rat – is coming to Greenwich Shopping Park, off Bugsby’s Way in Charlton, on Friday 19th August and the nice people at the park got in touch with Greenwichmums to let us know a little bit more about the event.

He is set to appear at regular intervals between 11am at 4pm at the free, open-to-all event. The event has been put on to provide summer holiday fun for families local to the Park and its 14 high street stores.

Scrat, the acorn-obsessed, saber-toothed squirrel is one of the key characters from 20th Century Fox’s children’s animated franchise, Ice Age, which tells the story of a group of animals struggling to survive during the dawning of the original ice age more than 850 million years ago.

The first film from the franchise was released in 2002 and there have since been four sequels, with the latest, Ice Age: Collision Course hitting cinemas earlier this year to popular acclaim
