With less than 100 days until Christmas, Wigan Town Centre bosses have announced details of this year’s free Town Centre Christmas events!
Wigan Town Centre Christmas Light Switch on Event takes place on Thursday 14 November between 4pm and 7.30pm in Market Place, launching late night shopping in the town. Live entertainment will be provided by a fabulous selection of acts and performers, further details to follow over the next few weeks!
Santa and his team of reindeer return to the town on Sunday 17 November, leading a huge parade from Mesnes Park to Market Place.
The parade starts at 1pm from Mesnes Park, travelling via Mesnes Road, turning right onto Standishgate, arriving in Market Place at 1.30pm. Families will then have the opportunity of meeting Santa and his reindeers in Market Place and be entertained by the free performers until 4.30pm.
Local organisations and groups are invited to join the parade, for further details, please e-mail the events team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
John Sanson, centre manager of the Grand Arcade commented:
“Wigan Town Centre will be full of festive cheer with the launch of late night shopping and the light switch on event, not forgetting Santa and his team of reindeer too! We look forward to shoppers and visitors enjoying all the free, festive fun we have planned.”
