Southport Market is set to play host to a winter wonderland as the popular food and drink venue launches its first Christmas Extravaganza!
Throughout December Southport Market, based on King Street, will undergo a magical transformation into a festive dream world with Christmas film showings, Christmas Markets, additional seating for Christmas bookings and even play host to the big man himself.
Sefton Council’s Tourism elves are putting finishing touches to the plans, which will see a host of completely free events take place at Southport Market during the Christmas period.
Decorations will also see the venue adorned with amazing garlands, giant baubles along with an eye catching tunnel of light.
Anyone wanting to arrange a Christmas get together at the market can now book and reserve tables by pre-purchasing a drinks package between December 3rd and 18th, while from December 11th free festive films will be shown in the market’s bespoke events space, in partnership with Bijou Cinema.
Also starting from December 11th, children will be able to visit the market’s special North Pole post office drop-off to ensure their letters to Santa are delivered in time for the big day, while Father Christmas and his elves will also be making a special guest appearance on certain dates.
Outdoor chalets featuring a wealth of present and gift ideas will also be held in the area around Southport Market
Cllr Marion Atkinson, Santa’s Sefton representative and Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, said: “Southport Market will be a winter wonderland with fun for all the family this December.
“All of the special vents we have planned are completely free and we are using a first come, first serve basis for our film showings and Santa meet & greet.
“There is plenty on offer from our incredible traders and they will be complimented by a selection of outdoor shopping chalets.”
