The Countdown to the Christmas Light Switch On at Runcorn Shopping City is now on!

Festive fun at Runcorn Shopping City last year!

The date for Runcorn Shopping City’s Christmas light switch on has been confirmed as Saturday 18th November. The day promises to be full of festive fun and entertainment with lots for people to see and do.

As well as switching on the giant Christmas tree in all its lit-up glory, you can expect to see thousands of decorative lights, free entry to Santa’s grotto, delicious food offerings, Christmas crafts, live music – and some familiar Christmassy faced characters will also be attending for some brilliant photo opportunities.

Dave Pearman, Shopping Centre Manager at Runcorn Shopping City, said:

“It’s that time of the year again!

“We’re inviting people to come and immerse themselves in the magic of Christmas at our official light switch on event. The centre is excited to have a jam-packed schedule of fun for visitors to enjoy.

“Please come along and get involved, you can see the beautiful lights on display, treat yourself to a cheeky mince pie, and kids and adults alike can grab themselves a selfie with some Chrimbo elves and more – a day not to be missed!”

Opening at 10am with the entertainment kicking off at 12pm, the centre is thrilled and ready to embrace the holiday season with everyone.

Entry to the event will be free as part of Runcorn Shopping City’s commitment to providing the local community with affordable and enjoyable family fun. The centre asks that those who are able to kindly make a donation to this year’s chosen charity; Halton Haven Hospice.
