Time to get Christmassy! Queensgate sets the stage for its ‘Festive Fiesta’

Queensgate Shopping Centre is kicking off this magical season with their ‘Festive Fiesta’ on Saturday 17 November.

Families will see the centre come to life at 10.30am with this complete magical takeover. It’s time to get excited, our ‘Festive Fiesta’ is unlike anything we’ve done before,” said Centre Director at Queensgate, Mark Broadhead.

The regional shopping centre will amaze shoppers with a stunning extravaganza of dancing, music, entertainment, and magic. Everywhere shoppers look there will be a celebration of Christmas. Dancing bellboys, mischievous elves, nutcracker ballerinas, drummers, plus the hilariously hideous Ugly Sisters come to life to start the joyful season with a bang.

Mark commented: “This is the event of the year! We can’t wait to bring Christmas 2018 to life for the people of Peterborough; we have got such an exciting schedule planned. And there will be plenty of surprises too, so keep your eyes peeled for those as the festive season approaches!”
