Christmas fun in store at Cherry Tree Shopping Centre

There are still two weekends of festive events due to take place at Cherry Tree Shopping Centre this December.

Shoppers will be able to get into the Christmas spirit at Cherry Tree Shopping Centre with events and activities booked in every weekend.

With the return of the Christmas grotto and a range of craft workshops, along with lots of exciting competitions, shoppers will have plenty to do this festive season. Children can write letters to Santa at the event area, located near to Poundbakery, and receive a return letter in the post, as well as enter the seasonal colouring competition.

Ruth Kavanagh, Centre Administrator at Cherry Tree, commented, “Following on from the late-night shopping event we held on November 30th, we are so pleased to share our calendar of events for the Christmas period.

“We also have an exciting social media competition beginning on the 11th December where we will be giving away five incredible prizes to some lucky shoppers.”

Elf Workshops will take place each Saturday until 16 December. The list of workshops include:

  • Saturday 9th December – Mrs Claus’ Clay Bauble Crafts
  • Saturday 16th December – Rudolf’s Reindeer Food Prep

Santa’s Grotto will be open each Saturday in December with extra dates added for 22, 23, and 24 December. All events are free and take place within the centre between 10am until 4pm.

Cherry Tree Shopping Centre will also be hosting a week-long competition on their Facebook page, that will see five lucky winners receive gifts, beginning on 11 December. To find out more about the upcoming social media competition, keep an eye on the Cherry Tree Facebook page and website.
