It’s the first Christmas event in Colchester town centre – don’t miss it! Be outside the front of Williams & Griffin Department store, High Street, Colchester at 12 noon on Sunday 17th November for the annual Christmas animated window unveiling, light (and snow!) switch on!
Watch Father Christmas travel down the High Street and arrive at the store in festive style at 12noon prompt. Join in the countdown with Father Christmas and help him tear off the paper to unwrap this years Christmas Animated Window, the theme of which will be kept top secret until the day!
This year the event is held in association with the Robin Cancer Trust, a local charity raising awareness for germ cell cancer, which includes testicular and ovarian cancer, in 16-35 year olds. Come and show your support for them on the day. Plus we will have fun and music throughout the morning leading up to the window unveil with Heart FM. And we’ll make it snow too. . . .
After the unveiling, Father Christmas will see children in his grotto, located in the new Christmas Emporium, accessible from the Ground floor of the existing store or the High Street. This year the grotto is animated so you will see Father Christmas and all his animated animals. The cost is £5 per child which includes a present and photograph.
Sally Thomas, Marketing Manager for the store commented “Please do come along and enjoy the excitement of the day and watch the unveiling, it is something that children, and adults will remember for years to come. After the unveiling Father Christmas will be in the animated grotto in our new Christmas Emporium and every weekend until Christmas. . . .”
Toby Freeman of the Robin Cancer Trust commented “It’s a privilege to be part of such an important date in Colchester’s calendar. It’s not Christmas until the W&G window unveiling and the first snow falls in the town centre! It’ll be a great day raising awareness for germ cell cancer, spent with the local community.’
