Six weeks of festive activities
Published 04 November 2019
Now, people will be able to enjoy a taste of the enchanting world of LaplandUK within a town centre environment, with the creation of the magical Wishing Tree retail store.
In addition, visitors can book for an immersive story-telling experience, where Wish, the beautiful elf responsible for looking after Christmas wishes, tells the story of how the humble toy maker and his wife became known to all as Father and Mother Christmas.
Also, located in-store will also be an Elven post box giving shoppers the opportunity to post their letter to Father Christmas, including a special Christmas Wish. The Lexicon and LaplandUK will make six of these posted wishes come true, picking one a week from opening until Christmas.
On Friday, November 15 2019, The Lexicon Christmas Market returns to the town centre. Operating from picturesque wooden chalets in the High Street, the Christmas Market will be open every day until Christmas Eve, selling an array of festive food and drink, including German bratwurst and cheese alongside a range of handcrafted Christmas gifts and decorations.
Sue Boor, head of marketing at The Lexicon says: “With the opening of LaplandUK, our Christmas Wishes campaign and the Christmas Market in mid-November, we are going to make the most of the festive season. And of course, we will be unveiling many more activities in the weeks to come.”
On November 24 2019, the town centre lights will go live, as part of a jam-packed afternoon of festive fun, surprises and entertainment – details to follow.
During weekends in December, choirs, choral societies and groups will be entertaining shoppers and a face-painting team will be on hand with a host of Christmas Wishes themed designs.
The town centre will be opening later for the weeks commencing December 9 and December 16 2019 to allow everyone ample time to visit The Lexicon.
The Lexicon’s Christmas Charity Baubles will also be available to purchase from the Information Hub from November 9 2019 with all proceeds being placed within The Lexicon Charity Fund.
