Christmas Light Switch On

The Christmas Light Switch On - Friday 28 November - marks the start of festivities at Trentham

There's simply nowhere better for Christmas Shopping than Trentham Shopping Village

With FREE parking and a traditional village atmosphere our shops and restaurants offer you a warm welcome this Christmas. Packed full of treats for you and your loved ones, this is Christmas Shopping made easy. The switch on brings our twinkling village to life and adds sparkle to the festive season.

Toy Town street performers will be in the village from 3pm, and later Batman, Catwoman and the Joker will arrive to entertain us and help Signal Radio and Santa switch on the Christmas lights at 7pm. There will be a short firework finale.

The village will be open until 8pm for late night shopping and it's the perfect opportunity to seek out Christmas gifts. Late night shopping continues on Wednesday evenings 3rd, 10th and 17th December.

This year sees the Trentham Ice rink housed inside a marquee at Trentham Shopping Village surrounded by Christmas cheer. Skating sessions run from 11am-9pm on launch night - book yours now!

The popular Artisan Market will also be here on the 28th - Christmas Launch Night from 2pm-9pm and the weekend of 29th & 30th November 10am-5pm. The market offers the chance to browse, taste and buy foodie treats, Christmas crafts and gifts, as well as many festive follies from over 50 talented makers and artisans, many local to Staffordshire.

We advise that you arrive in plenty of time before the light switch on, and reverse into your car parking space on arrival to ease queue congestion when leaving after the event. To avoid the rush to leave site, please consider booking a skating session, visit the Christmas Artisan Market, where there'll be plenty of refreshments or book a meal - Frankie and Benny's, David's Brasserie, Premier Inn Restaurant and Terrazzo del Giardino are open until late. Get in the festive mood at Whittard of Chelsea who will be handing out free samples of their tempting hot chocolate. Bath and Body, Portmeirion and The Candle Shop are all having Launch Night sales, so pop along to find an early Christmas gift.

An increased bus service, to and from Trentham Shopping Village, will run during Christmas Launch night. Download the First Bus 21b timetable for further information.
