This Thursday – Thursday 5th November 2015, intu Chapelfield in Norwich is inviting shoppers to ‘come and play’ at a very special Festive Lights Night. The event, from 5pm to 9pm, will be a fun-packed shopping evening with masses of free entertainment for the whole family. This will be the first festive event in the city this year, launching Christmas and late night shopping in Norwich. It will also be a chance for shoppers to get a first look at the shopping centre’s sparkling new star-themed decorations.
Festive entertainment highlights on the night will include the return of the musical Christmas tree on Chapelfield Plain with its beautiful lights show which plays every half hour. New for 2015 will be a giant snow globe on Chapelfield Plain which provides the perfect backdrop for festive selfies. Inside the shopping centre will be a Christmas Karaoke booth; a mini stage with competitions, performances and giveaways; life-like animatronic reindeer, fun festive craft activities; face painting; live singers and musicians.
Sheridan Smith, marketing manager at intu Chapelfield, said: “The theme for Christmas at intu Chapelfield this year is ‘come and play’ because there will be so many fun and interactive things for families to do here in the shopping centre. We are looking forward to seeing our shoppers channeling all the festive greats such as Slade, Mariah or Wham in the Christmas Karaoke booth. As well as a night of great entertainment and activities for the whole family, it will be an event brimming with ideas and inspiration to get people into the Christmas spirit. And of course all our shops will have great Christmas gift ideas and the cafes and restaurants will be serving our favourite Christmas fayre.”
There will be lots of opportunities for families to ‘come and play’ including intu Chapelfield’s Cracker Trail which begins on Thursday 5th November 2015. Shoppers will be able to pick up a special Trail Map from the intu Chapelfield Information Desk which will lead them on a hunt to find a selection of toys hidden on Christmas crackers around the centre. Completed Trail Maps will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win one of three intu Chapelfield Gift Card prizes, of £100, £50 and £25 in value. Trail Maps will cost 50p each and all the money raised will go to intu Chapelfield’s Christmas charity.
