Late Night Shopping – Wednesday 11th December


Experience late night Christmas shopping every Wednesday in December, leading up to Christmas.

Whether it’s a visit to Santa’s Grotto in Market Gates Shopping Centre, meeting real reindeer, taking in the wonderful festive lighting around the town’s Christmas tree or visiting the historic market place; you can enjoy fresh festive food and drink from outdoor stalls, followed by a rooftop firework finale spectacular on each of the evenings at 8 PM.
(Please note that the Reindeer will be heading home before the fireworks at 8 PM, so that they are not disturbed by the fantastic display)

At 7 PM, there will be the annual Lantern Parade, which will be led this year by the Reindeer!
(This will leave from the Christchurch area of King Street at approximately 7 PM, heading back in to the Town Centre)
