erseyway Shopping Centre gets into the spirit of Christmas with the ultimate Winter Wonderland experience! Stockport is guaranteed a white Christmas as Merseyway Shopping Centre hosts its first ever Winter Wonderland.

VISIT SANTA, IT’S FREE!

Kicking off at 4.15pm, the centre will be visited by its very own Snow Fairy, who will begin the countdown to Christmas with a swish of her wand, marking the beginning of the celebrations. As the snow begins to fall and the Christmas lights turn on, visitors can look up to see an aerial acrobat performance, while an animatronic reindeer will be making its way around the centre to greet little shoppers too. Make sure you snap a selfie with the stars of the latest pantomime by Stockport Plaza, Jack and the Beanstalk, and don’t miss the stilt walkers as they make their way through the centre.

Shows and performances will take place at 4.30pm, 5.45pm and 7pm.

Merseyway Shopping Centre will be hosting Visits to Santa this Christmas in a giant bauble. Open from 11am - 3pm, children of all ages can visit Father Christmas and receive a gift, ready for Christmas Day. Visits to Santa are free to attend, however the centre will be accepting donations for its charity of the year, Independent Options Children & Family Centre located in Hazel Grove. The giant bauble will be open for visits on the 7th, 8th, 14th and 15th December 2019 as well as selected late night shopping dates.
