Football fans can get into the Brazilian party spirit at a World Cup party this weekend.

The Spires Shopping Centre in High Barnet is gearing up for England’s first match against Italy by planning a football-themed day on Saturday.

Shoppers will be able to have their photographs taken at the centre’s England supporters’ photo stand with flags and props. 

Everyone will receive a free 6x4 print to take away and the opportunity to instantly upload their photo to Facebook and Twitter to cheer on England. 

There will also be Brazilian samba dancers and a band, a chance to practice penalties with Barnet FC, beer tasting with The Black Horse, a Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice tombola and international food stalls.

As part of the centre’s 25th anniversary they are also offering the chance to win a £250 Thomson holiday voucher and a £250 Spires shopping voucher.
