Santa comes to the Pavilions
Ahead of Christmas and to kick off the festive season, we wanted to host a Christmas themed event that would bring the local community together, increase footfall, and drive more people into the retailers over the Christmas period!
To ensure this was an event that would do the centre proud and get people into the festive spirit, it had to be a day that everyone would remember and enjoy.
Numerous exciting and unique activities were planned for the day, to help people enjoy the day’s festivities:
- The Mayor switched on the Christmas lights and opened Santa’s Grotto
- Kids could visit Santa and receive a gift from the man himself
- A giant snow globe where people could have their photo taken
- A surprise performance by local dance troupe, Streetz Ahead
- Roaming entertainment by Hodman and Sally
To help capture the magic of the day and the tons of fun that everyone had, a videographer was onsite during the event.
The event was a great success, with everyone having a wonderful time. We had:
- A good turnout by the local community
- Good interaction with shoppers on the day
- Community involvement, with the mayor opening the day’s events
