The stars are bringing festive spirit to Wythenshawe Town Centre this year as special guests Matt Cardle, Stavros Flatley and Next of Kin turn out to switch on the Christmas Lights on Friday 29th November at 6.45pm, marking the start of the Christmas shopping season.

From Saturday 30th November, Wythenshawe Town Centre will have a full line-up of festive events, from The Dream Catcher Siberian Huskies to Santa’s Grotto, which will open each Saturday throughout December, giving shoppers the chance to meet Santa and get a star treatment make-over.

Imagine FM will also be bringing its Christmas roadshow to Wythenshawe each Saturday throughout December.

The festive celebrations come after another successful year at Wythenshawe Town Centre, with the recent addition of two new national retailers; Wynsors World of Shoes and CEX Games Exchange. The retailers now occupy 8,500 sq ft in the main Birtles shopping parade, joining existing tenants including JD Sports, Boots, Costa Coffee, Argos and Asda.

Steven Knowles, Development Director at St. Modwen, said: “We have had a great year at Wythenshawe, adding more national retailers to the town centre and more choice for shoppers as we get nearer to Christmas. We are expecting a very buoyant Christmas shopping period this year and are looking forward to welcoming local shoppers to our fantastic programme of Christmas festivities.”
