Christmas decorations will soon be up. Snow may soon be falling. And schools will soon be shutting their doors for the Christmas holidays. Which means the little ones will be looking for things to do. Here's a selection of options for you this festive period.
Bolton's Big Christmas Lights Switch-On
This year, the lights are being switched on by the town's favourite bearded bakers, television's The Hairy Bikers. Si King and Dave Myers have been welcomed into the Bolton public's hearts, and they have done the same in return, having been major attractions at the past two Bolton Food & Drink Festivals. Their mixture of tasty recipes, no-nonsense banter and Northern humour have proved a huge hit, and they were delighted to hear about the invitation to turn on the Christmas lights, and hastily accepted, excited to return to the town that has adopted them.
For more information about the big switch on, check out this blog, and make sure you're there on Saturday 24th of November. It's one not to be missed.
Victoria Square Christmas Village
A Winter Wonderland is set for the centre of Bolton this year, including the construction of an ice rink in Victoria Square, the first for 10 years. The 200-square-metre ice rink will be open seven days a week from the 1st of December to the 6th of January.
The ice rink will be a part of the Winter Wonderland constructed in the town centre, including a Santa's grotto, speciality market, street entertainment, real reindeer and general merriment.
Christmas Holiday Club @ Bolton Lads & Girls Club
If you need to combine something for the children to do with holiday care this year, Bolton Lads & Girls Club have a solution, thanks to their Christmas Holiday Club. It's running from Monday 24th December 2012 to Friday 4th January 2013 (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day) for all young people aged 8-12. The Club specialises in great fun, and that is what is guaranteed.
