Launch of Christmas 2018
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! And where better to get the whole festive season off to a cracking start than Dalton Park as we officially switch on our Christmas lights.
Christmas starts at Dalton Park on 10th November when Santa arrives at the outlet and parades through the mall on his sleigh pulled by real reindeer at 12pm and 2pm.
To get the party into full swing, Metro Radio will be on stage near to M&S Outlet, joining in the festivities from 3pm – 7pm with great music, fun and games for all to enjoy. Look out for fun filled games and chances to win prizes! There will also be lots of entertainment throughout the mall including a taxi cab photo booth!
Then the action and excitement builds as Metro Radio leads the countdown to our Christmas lights ‘switch on’ at 6.30pm when the outlet will transform into a magical glow of sparkling lights. The excitement continues straight away with a spectacular firework finale in the parkland for all to enjoy.
The fun doesn’t have to stop then! Stores will stay open a little later until 7:30pm. You can make a night of it with a choice of great films at Cineworld and delicious meal at Frankie & Benny’s or Pizza Express.
Reindeer Parade- Our event team have a difficult job to ensure the reindeer parade goes smoothly. Please consider this and help them by keeping well clear of the sleigh as it travels through the mall.
Viewing the fireworks-
The fireworks can best be viewed at either the M&S Outlet entrance where the Metro Radio stage will be set up or the central entrance near Subway.
Public Transport – This event is always the most popular day of the year for visitors coming to Dalton Park. The car park often hits capacity so please consider using public transport for this event. Our friends at Arriva have provided a special half price family ticket for the event, simply show the voucher below to the driver when you board the bus.
