Friday 6 December, 17.30 – 20.00
Pop over to Ewell on Friday evening for a mince pie, a glass of mulled wine, inspiring present ideas and some good old fashioned Christmas cheer!
Ewell Yule is a magical event and an opportunity to have fun, meet Father Christmas, look at all the Christmas lights and the Christmas trees in the village and buy some Christmas gifts. There is also the opportunity to take part in a treasure hunt around the Village shops with some fantastic prizes to be won.
The shops will be open until 8pm, lights and the wonderful Christmas trees will be glittering above the shop fascia’s, there will be singing and Carols in three separate areas and festive Christmas stalls, fun and entertainment will be found up and down the High Street.
Ewell Yule has been organised by the Ewell Traders Association with support of the Epsom Business Development Manager and Epsom & Ewell Borough Council.
Over 40 businesses in Ewell have installed Christmas trees to the exterior of their properties. This was a community undertaking; with the businesses paying for the trees and lights, the Business Development Manager purchasing the tree brackets, a local blacksmith coming out of retirement to create the tree brackets and the Council’s handyman scheme installing them.
Adam Worley, Epsom Business Development Manager, said “it is fantastic to see so many local Ewell traders working together and to be part of what looks to be a fantastic event. Many of the same traders took part in a buying and visual merchandising course earlier in the year, and seeing the lessons learnt applied as well is superb. The work Ewell traders have done highlights the important lead businesses can take within their locality and create a truly unique shopping experience”
The visual merchandising course was an initiative of the new Business Development Manager and was run for retailers to help them maximise their appeal.
Yvonne Love, Owner of Deli Delight in Ewell High Street "The Buying and Visual Merchandising Training supported me in realising there are always opportunities to promote my products and I have put many of these in place to create a visual appeal of warm and welcoming which reflects my business values. In part as a result we have been experiencing our busiest trade since opening just under 12 months ago”.
