This years range of fun Christmas activities at Bournemouth’s Castlepoint Shopping Park are to be launched by Cinderella panto cast members on the evening of Thursday 24th November at 5 pm. With a snow machine adding to the magic, Cinderella Dani Harmer, The Prince, Rhydian Roberts from X factor, and ugly sisters David Ball and Michael Chance will launch the activities with the help of Santa Claus and officially switch on the Christmas lights.
50’s favourites, including R&B jive and bogie will be performed within a concert by Miss Annie and the Midnight shift whilst Cinderella and the cast meet the public and Santa Claus meets the children. There will be stilt walkers, roller skating baubles and Christmas bells and fun characters from Christmas and fairy tales along the East and West malls.
Bill Riddle, Operations Manager at Castlepoint, said that the launch will also announce a series of activities and demonstrations throughout December that will create a special period of joy and festive merriment to the UK’s largest Shopping Park.
“We will be creating a special atmosphere to get the festive season underway. There will be lots to see and do within our retail stores with demonstrations from various specialists and artists and also the opportunity to win a range of prizes in our 12 days of Christmas count down competition,” said Bill. “Many of our stores will extend their late night opening policy to 9pm from the 1st December to help shoppers get those special presents.”
