Counting Down to Christmas at arc

DATE PUBLISHED: 04/11/2019

Join us on Thursday 14th November as we join the town in turning on their Christmas lights.

Kicking off from 4pm, our fun packed evening will include performances from local dance school, Jessica Barber’s school of dance. The Ukulele Elves will also be taking a well-earned break from Santa's toy workshop to head to arc. This gang of cheeky Elves have a tip-top repertoire of Christmas classics guaranteed to get you singing, and they've even given many well-loved favourites their own special twists: Jingle Bells with a hip-hop finale anyone?

As the sun goes down, beautiful Light walkers will head out to meet families in a multicolour swirl of costume and light, and ahead of their very busy month Snow Queen Elsa and her sister Anna will also be visiting before the big man himself, Father Christmas turns on the lights at 7.15pm.

Abbie Panks, centre manager said, “We are looking forward to starting the countdown to Christmas with our light switch on and are delighted that Father Christmas could find time in his busy schedule to join us not only at the Light Switch on, but also for 4 days during the Christmas Fayre where children and their families will have the chance to come and meet him and bring along their Christmas lists and wishes.

Not only that, during the lights switch on we will be launching ‘Merry Win’mas’ which will give shoppers at arc the opportunity to win great prizes just by doing their Christmas shopping with us”
