Children can step up for a penalty shootout with Hamley Bear ahead of the Euros football championship between June 11 and July 11, as well other fun and interactive games and activities.

Following a year of missing out on playing with friends and family, Hamleys aims to encourage playful competition and rekindle the joy of being 'a good sport' and the power of taking part and giving it a go.

The Hamleys entertainment team will be split into Team Fun and Team Magic and any children who wish to enter the Games are able to become part of one of the teams, depending on which store they are visiting.

“We believe that this year more than ever the major events are so special to bring everyone together and we want to make sure that all those young and old can enjoy all we have to offer.

“Families have missed these special interactions for some time now and we are privileged to be able to bring this back to so many people’s lives, so let’s make the best use of the lovely outdoors and let the games begin at Hamleys.”
