Saturday 9th, 10th, 16th December 2017
Monks Cross Shopping Park are hosting a whole range of fun, free activities for all of the family during the lead up to Christmas to get everyone feeling festive!
On Saturday 9th and Saturday 16th December between 11am and 4pm Monks Cross will have a free gift wrapping station in the Information Centre. Visitors simply need to show the receipt for any item bought that day at the shopping centre and the talented team of elves will wrap them beautifully ready to take home and put under the tree. There will also be the opportunity to donate some money to Snappy charity who will be there on both days.
On Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December Monks Cross are taking part in the York Ice Trail. This is the biggest outdoor ice trail in the UK and the shopping park will be joined by a glittering, ice sculpture! Visitors are encouraged to take a selfie with the Ice Sculpture and if they tweet the photo to the Monks Cross Twitter page or share them to the Monks Cross Facebook page they will have the chance to win £100 shopping vouchers.
On Sunday 10th December, visitors are invited to come and get their very own free personalised bauble! They will be able to choose the bauble shape, the ribbon colour and once personalised, they can take it home with them in a gorgeous little Christmas craft box. They make for beautiful gifts too. There will be free mince pies on hand too for everyone waiting for their bauble to be personalised! The activity will take place in the Information Centre.
On Saturday 16th December, Monks Cross will be visited by two beautiful reindeer! Families are invited to come and meet. Don’t forget to bring a camera! Unibrass Band will also be carol singing outside the Information Centre on this day so it is sure to be very festive for all.
Throughout November and December Monks Cross Shopping Park have been supporting the Minster FM Toy Appeal. There are a series of collection points that can be found at Monks Cross where you can donate toys for children whose families can’t afford to celebrate Christmas.
