Colwyn Bay is Perfectly Placed for Christmas

1st December 2016

Categories: News

Be entertained as well as do some shopping, there is something for all in Colwyn Bay this Friday 2 December, a Christmas Special!  

Meet the real reindeers, and stilt walking candy canes, toy soldiers, and jugglers, all are returning to provide free festive family entertainment. And shopping opportunities will be extended, whether you’re after local produce or festive treats.

Cllr Graham Rees, Conwy County Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Tourism, Marketing and Leisure said “Building on the enthusiasm, commitment and in turn successful festive spirit which contributed to the economic benefit of Colwyn Bay town last December, Conwy County Borough Council are working with the Bay of Colwyn Town Council and Colwyn Bay Chamber of Trade to welcome visitors again for an evening of family entertainment and late night shopping.”

Santa and his real reindeers are joining us, and see ‘Arthur Christmas’ showed by TAPE in the pop-up cinema in the Bay View Shopping Centre. Plus Christmas Card Workshops, Giant Penguins, Elsa and Olaf, and a Giant Snowglobe – get a group photo! All free entertainment is scheduled from 3pm so it’s a perfect after school treat.

Hop on board one of our many funfair attractions, which we know you all love, as well as a chance to do some shopping, in the shops and on the streets … Colwyn Bay is Perfectly Placed for Christmas!

Anna Openshaw, Project Manager, Colwyn Business Improvement District said “It’s great to be part of such a key event in the Colwyn business calendar. Christmas is an exciting and important trading period and it’s vital that the BID help local businesses capitalise on this.”

Ingrid Lewis, Town Manager said “Family festive fun is guaranteed at this spectacular Christmas event.  With the town’s mix of independent and national shops, you are sure to find a different range of Christmas gifts whatever the size of your pocket. Remember to browse throughout the town and explore the smaller shops just off the main areas to hunt for that special gift.”

Cllr John Davies, Town Mayor, welcomes the event, adding “The Bay of Colwyn Town Council is grateful to Conwy County Borough Council for their continued support of the regeneration of Colwyn Bay, providing an event to launch Christmas in the town. We hope that those who attended the event last year will return again and the community will be out in force to support our local traders and enjoy a fun-filled evening of festive treats”.
