A series of exciting Christmas events will take place in Bridlington this month as the town’s premier shopping destination is set to be a hive of activity full of festive fun.
The Promenades Shopping Centre is currently the home of Santa’s Grotto in Bridlington every weekend until Christmas after linking up with Bridlington Lions Club.
The Centre is also giving away hundreds of pounds worth of prizes in the run up to Christmas through a number of competitions on Facebook and Twitter.
Promenades Shopping Centre held a Breakfast with Santa on Sunday, December 7, in which children were treated to a wide selection of breakfast foods from Quayside Diner, a chat with Santa and Mrs Christmas and a visit to his grotto to receive a special present.
Promenades Shopping Centre Manager Maria Kamper said: “Our Breakfast with Santa event was a huge success – with more than 20 children attending – and it was fantastic to see all of them leave with smiling faces. We wanted to add to the magic of Christmas and we are delighted everyone enjoyed themselves.”
Along with Santa’s visit to the Centre every weekend, The Promenades will be hosting a festive ‘Stalls in the Malls’ on December 20, in which some of East Yorkshire’s best producers and traders will be given a place on the high street to sell unique gifts.
This comes after The Promenades linked up with Eve Lomax, the creator and organiser of Prospect Shopping Centre’s UPmarket in Hull, to bring a bespoke offering to Bridlington shoppers.
Facebook and Twitter users will be able to enter a competition to win £500 by telling the Centre what they would like for Christmas using the hashtag #DearPromenades on the centre’s social media pages.
Visitors to The Promenades can also win £100 every week in the run up to Christmas if they take a picture of themselves with a toy Santa hidden around the Centre and posting it to the Centre’s Facebook or Twitter.
The Hunmanby and District Silver Band will also be creating a festive atmosphere on Christmas Eve by playing a number of Christmas tunes in the Centre to get visitors in the spirit.
Maria continued: “We are looking forward to bringing a magical Christmas to Bridlington and we hope everyone in the town comes and joins in with the festivities.”
The Promenades Shopping Centre will be trading until 7pm on Thursday 11 and 18 December.
