Trafford Palazzo has confirmed a jam-packed Christmas Events bonanza set to bring festive fun to Trafford City’s retail and leisure destinations throughout November and December. Taking inspiration from the iconic festive favourite, ‘Miracle on 34th Street’, ‘Christmas at TP Street’, will bring Christmas to life for all ages and will be launched from Saturday 26th November and run for four weeks.
Visitors and shoppers can enjoy the free event activity with live music, children’s entertainment, Christmas crafts including ‘Letters to Santa’ workshops, visits from ‘The Cheeky Elves’ and popular sweet treat and drink vendors. Central to the cheer and playing host to the festivities will be a cosy, Alpine-themed tipi, reminiscent of a beautiful ski lodge, boasting furry furniture, tables for families, heaters and a stage for live musical performances.
Back for a second year are the Cheeky Elves Behaving Badly, this year the Elves will be joined by weekly roving entertainers such as Christmas Presents on roller skates, Candy Cane Stilt walkers and Reindeer characters. Kate Crafts will also return to Trafford Palazzo with Christmas crafts including ‘Letters to Santa’, make your own Christmas decorations, decorate your own Christmas cookie and make your own Christmas card.
Christmas stalls will feature a variety of independent traders selling traditional Christmas items providing guests with the perfect opportunity to purchase some unique stocking fillers. And since shopping is hungry and thirst work, a selection of sweet treats will also be available to purchase including hot chocolates and sweets, as well as mulled wine and boozy hot chocolates for adults.
The weekly live music entertainment schedule will also continue throughout the festive period with a selection of choirs singing hymns and all the Christmas classics being added to the mix. Formerly Barton Square, Trafford Palazzo houses the likes of Primark, LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre, SEA LIFE, Silentnight, Homesense, Natuzzi and will soon be home to new entertainment venue, Nerf Action Xperience.
