Countdown to Christmas begins
Swindon Outlet kicks off the count down to Christmas
Shoppers enjoyed the first day of Christmas on Saturday as the Swindon Designer Outlet kicked off the countdown to crimbo with their light switch-on.
It was a day of free live entertainment with carol renditions from Purton Pealers, storytelling with Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Swinderella, the outlet’s version of the classic Cinderella story plus the opportunity to meet real reindeer.
Children will also get the chance to meet Santa’s real reindeer who will be flying into the outlet for the celebrations, and the Ugly Sisters from Swinderella, who will be roaming around the outlet throughout the afternoon.
“The lead up to Christmas is always an exciting time at the Outlet. And tonight's the perfect way to kick off the festivities" said Nick Williams, marketing manager at Swindon Designer Outlet.
"We wanted to make a day of it so the whole family can enjoy themselves plus it's the perfect opportunity for shoppers to get a head start on their Christmas shopping by picking up some fantastic gifts at bargain prices.”
