Christmas at Priory Meadow

A Christmas Shopping Festive Fun Day is taking place at Priory Meadow Shopping Centre this December. 

On Sunday 1st December between 10am and 4pm there is free festive entertainment for all the family to enjoy throughout the day whilst Christmas shopping, with a magical atmosphere, live music, fireworks, and even snowfall.

Enjoy a brass band performing seasonal hits by the 35ft Christmas tree out in Queens Square as artificial snow falls from the sky. There is also a giant ball pit dome experience to enjoy that it is fun for all the family and Mrs Claus will be handing out gingerbread from her special bicycle. 

Inside the shopping centre throughout the day you’ll find even more festive delights, such as free face and glitter painting and Danny the Elf will be entertaining and handing out fantastic balloon models.

It wouldn’t be a Christmas event without Father Christmas. Meet the jolly man himself outside Marks and Spencer for free throughout the day and take a photo with him on his giant throne. Plus keep an eye out for his elves who will be wandering around the centre handing out delicious complimentary treats and surprises.

The shopping centre’s charity partner of the year, Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice, is bringing along The Snowman, who will be making appearances throughout the day. Donations to the charity are greatly appreciated.

Ending the event with a bang is a firework finale that will be taking place at approximately 4.15pm from Hastings Castle. There are great viewing spots from Wellington Place and the seafront. The fireworks have been paid for by Love Hastings Ltd.

Centre Manager, Andy Harvey, said: “We hope you can join us for what is going to be a very festive Christmas shopping experience this December, something you certainly can’t enjoy when shopping online.”

“Our stores have wonderful staff who would be delighted to help you choose the perfect Christmas gifts throughout the day. We also have parking all day for just £1.” He added.
