Christmas Launch at Trentham

Christmas Launch in the Shopping Village

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

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.

This year's Christmas parade is based on children’s story books with characters such as Goldilocks, Humpty Dumpty, Snow White and the Mad Hatter walking with Santa to turn on our Christmas lights. 

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 5, 12 and 19 December, with Trentham Garden Centre open until 9pm.

Timetable for Christmas Light Switch On

  • 6.15pm - Start of the Christmas parade by Riedel and Totally Delicious
  • 7pm - Santa and Mrs Claus switch on Trentham's lights on the Trentham Garden Centre car park
  • 7.30pm - the shops will be open until 8pm and storybook characters will be available for photo opportunities. 

This is our most popular and well-attended event of the year. Please allow ample time to get to Trentham Shopping Village and to leave the event as traffic can be heavy. Car parking is free but limited. We will do our best to ease congestion, but please EXPECT DELAYS leaving. Take time to mooch around the shops, have something to eat and meet our fun characters. Please follow the directions of the car park marshals who may direct you behind the garden centre to exit on to the A34 by Poachers Cottage. Thank you.

There will crowds and also be a fireworks finale to the event (weather permitting) which means it will not be suitable for dogs, with the exception of assistance dogs, sorry.
