What's On?

Ice Rink
Yes an ice rink will be taking pride of place at the top of the Quarry Park throughout the event. There will be small donation to the festival charity The Ark of �2 per go. Booking cannot be taken for this and it will be on a first come basis - sorry!


Christmas Storytelling
We are not so keen on Christmas Grotto's so we wanted to make some REAL memories and have a Christmas storytelling time for the little ones. This will be free to attend and a magical experience aimed at under 6's.


Hands on Workshops
Learning is fun, especially when you're doing it alongside an expert. If you have always fancied having a go at making a holly wreath, making pottery individually or perhaps learning to wrap your gifts the way they deserve then make sure you leave time in your shopping schedule to get hands on in one of our workshops. Foodie workshops will look at skills such as making the perfect cocktail or cooking the Christmas turkey, and of course the tricks behind making the perfect and beautifully presented Christmas dinner.


Carol Singing

Carols are an important part of the Christmas experience so maybe you can join us in enjoying the old favourites. We will be joined by local groups who will ensure that your festive season starts with that uplifting feeling that only these festive tunes can achieve. With young and old joining together in a family experience that will never be forgotten Christmas is certainly the time for singing around
the piano. A giant carol singalong at 3pm each day will put everyone in the festive mood.


Homeless experience
It's often in the winter months that we remember those less fortunate than ourselves and we have decided that we should provide an experience that allows you to actually see how the homeless manage at this time of the year. Working alongside The Ark there will be a soup kitchen serving what you would receive on the street while raising money for this
amazing charity.


Shrewsbury Town
The town full of independent shops as we ll as huge multi-nationals, amazing restaurants, suprises around every corner. Why would you want to go anywhere else for your Christmas shopping experience?
