Christmas Entertainment at The Lanes

We have a fabulous range of entertainment at The Lanes this Christmas.

The festive seasons biggest VIP, Father Christmas and his Elves will greet children in his Grotto and hear what exciting gifts they would like to open on Christmas Day. Open every Saturday and Sunday from 26 November until 18 December the event will raise money for Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw Children’s Hospice. With a recommended donation of £3 per child, 100% of the funds collected will be donated to the local charities.

Adding to the festive feel, each Saturday from the 26 November until 17 December, roaming entertainers will mingle with customers to add a sense of fun and mischief. From stilt walking and hula hooping  Elves to a visit from the mischievous Grinch and Cindy Lou, there will be a fabulous atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. The Rainbow Elves from Rainbow Wishes Foundation, a local community interest company, will also make several weekend appearances to entertain shoppers and those waiting to see Santa.

If that wasn’t enough, local community group StagedRight will wow the crowds with their fabulous performances. And, local choral and musical groups, Cartmell Shepherd Choir, Raffles School Choir, the Cathedral Cantate Choir and the Border Concert Band will all perform some Christmas classics for customers during December.

Late night shopping will be available at The Lanes until 8pm every Thursday from 1st to 22nd  December.
