We thought it would be great to share with you some of different things that are happening in Market Harborough during the Christmas period and let you plan to make this a really great and prosperous Christmas 2009.
If it’s Friday, there’s something happening for Christmas in Market Harborough!
4th December – Late Night Shopping
It all starts with the hugely anticipated Market Harborough Chamber of Trade Late Night Shopping Festival on Friday 4th December which really kicks off Christmas in style with thousands taking over the streets to enjoy masses of entertainment, stalls, attractions and the Christmas Lights switch-on ceremony at 6.30pm. This year Market Harborough Building Society are sponsoring the tree in its new location near the war memorial and, there will also be attractive sets of low level lighting in the existing trees around The Square.
11th December – Green Christmas Roadshow
There will be a Green Christmas Roadshow from 4pm to 8pm on The Square, with experts on hand with lots of advice on recycling your trees, cards, wrapping paper and packaging.
The police, trading standards and local environmental charities will also be there.
This is another opportunity for businesses in the town to stay open later and, to encourage this, we will be supplying the independent retailers in the town centre with cotton reusable ‘Shop Harborough’ bags to hand out to customers on the night.
Email your pledge that you will be open on that night and or/on 18th December to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to get your bags.
Be quick and you may get some of the limited edition ‘Festive’ bags.
18th December – Reindeer
The Reindeer are back in Harborough (on The Square from 5pm to 8pm). It’s quite a while since Santa gave his permission but this year he is allowing his Reindeers to make a quick visit to Harborough before heading off to the North Pole. We expect lots of families in for that one so again a great opportunity to stay open late and add to the Christmas atmosphere for the extra numbers of shoppers in town.
