It’s Friday, which means there are just 2 days until Blantyre’s Christmas lights get switched on!
We’re super excited for this years event, which has been the product of many months of planning. With FREE entry to everybody, there’ll be loads to see and do.
Lights get switched on at 4.15pm, following a short service. If you’re hungry, don’t worry, we’re running a great little cafe this year selling coffees/teas and cakes and for any hot food, like burgers, chips or hotdogs, there’s a fantastic burger van supplied by one of our vendors!
The fun begins at midday with an Elvis Impersonator on stage. See you there!
Our fantastic Programme of Events has arrived. These were printed kindly courtesy of Gavin Watson Printers and will be given out for FREE to everybody attending on Sunday.
A first for us, somewhat more organised this year! A full colour 4 page glossy programme featuring adverts for all our amazing sponsors and combining the service hymn sheet and full programme with times for each act on stage. On the back some thank yous, information about the lights switch on, where to find Santa and Christmas messages to the community.
Stall Bookings for the Christmas Market at the Festive Event …..are now closed. We have a final number of 42 amazing stalls and tables and stalls have now been ordered. Thank you to all our vendors. The Christmas market is going to be great this year with good variety!
Some stalls are outside (forecast is dry, sunny and light winds). Most stalls are inside in the Sports Centre Hall or under a covered, heated marquee. A layout plan is being prepared and will be available when vendors arrive on Sunday morning. Vendors are not permitted to be on site before 10am, as stalls wont be built until then. Your goods are entirely your own risk. Offload area is the red ash park and carpark at the back of the Sports Centre.
