Christmas at Cheshire Oaks
Wednesday 8th November 2017
We're kicking off the festive season on Wednesday 8th November 2017, with a treat for the whole family! Check out all the great things we have going on below:
TREE LIGHTING EVENT
Join Leanne and Dave from the Radio City Breakfast Show from 6:30PM on Wednesaday, 8th November, as we gear up to switch on 100,000 twinkling lights across the centre. Clean Cut Kid, the local band from Liverpool, will be performing at 8pm with a 30 minute live performance from their latest album Felt.
Firework champions Blitz will commence the official switch-on at 8:30pm with an explosive 10 minute musical firework display to light up the centre with a bang. With Europe’s largest walk-in Christmas tree standing as tall as seven buses, the centre will be lit up for all to see. It is sure to be a dazzling evening!
For those laden with Christmas goodies, head to the Christmas Corner accessible via the magical archways by Ted Baker. The Après themed bar will be decked and decorated in traditional style, ideal for those looking to warm up with mouth-watering food and warming winter drinks.
The Christmas Corner will host a carousel, a German bar selling beers and gluhwein, festive swing grill and the Cheshire Cheese & Wine Company. For those looking to satisfy their sweet tooth, hot chocolate and pick ‘n’ mix will all be available. We will also be welcoming the Amazing Chocolate Workshop and the Cheshire Cheese Company to our festive area!
TREE OPENING WITH CHESTER ZOO
From Friday, 10th November, we will open the doors to the magical walk-in Christmas tree, an experience like no other. Children can join Mr. and Mrs. Claus from 4.30PM - 8PM to decorate their own Robin or Rudolph cookie in their festive cookie shop.
Shoppers can also meet Santa on his sleigh and marvel at Chester Zoo’s much loved animal lanterns in an exclusive sneak peak of the zoo’s wintertime extravaganza, The Lanterns, ahead of its official launch on Friday, 24th November (running on selected dates until 30th December). An array of live performance characters from the zoo will also be on hand to spread even more spellbinding, illuminating, theatrical adventure.
BREAKFAST WITH SANTA AT CAFÉ ROUGE
It’s not just mince pies Santa is eating this Christmas!
On certain dates throughout the festive season, the man himself will be visiting Café Rouge for breakfast. Children dining at the restaurant with a paying adult on these dates will receive a complimentary breakfast, as well as a chocolate treat. They will also be entertained with arts and crafts and most importantly get to give Santa their Christmas wish list.
