Christmas at Swansgate

Tis the season to meet Santa

Join us for the most magical time of year to meet someone very special! Visit Santa and his little helpers on Saturday 3rd and Saturday 10th December, 10am – 4pm. Plus receive a free Christmas gift*

But there’s more… We will also be holding a competition throughout the festive period for the Wellingborough community.

Snap a photo with Santa’s sleigh (located outside Wilko and Home Bargains) and tag us on social media to enter to win a £100 gift voucher*!

Please note, Santa’s ‘Quiet Hour’ will run from 10am – 11am on each event date meaning the session will be tailored to children with additional sensory needs and include a shorter queue and reduced noise.

Tis the season to meet The Grinch

A cantankerous, green, fluffy misery is visiting the shopping centre on Sunday 11th and Sunday 18th December to spread his grumpy charm.

The grumpy-grinch will be roaming the centre from 10am – 2pm getting up to his usual mischief and trying to ruin Christmas!

Tis the season for giving

We’ve teamed up with Home-Start to give you the opportunity to buy a gift for a less fortunate child in our community.

So, how does it work?

  • Visit the Giving Tree (located next to the Christmas tree, outside Costa Coffee)
  • Select a giving tag
  • Purchase a gift requested 
  • Attach it’s supplied label to the gift
  • Post it in our drop box

The donation station is adjacent to F.Hinds and is open for the community to donate their newly bought gifts.

Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers that support families with young children through their challenging times. 

Starting in the home, their approach is as individual as the people they’re helping. No judgment, just compassionate, confidential help and expert support.

Tis the season for Late Night Shopping 

Swansgate makes leaving Christmas to the last minute, easy as a mince pie!

Shop ’til you drop after hours with Swansgate’s late-night shopping days on Wednesday 21st, Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd December.

Enjoy an extra special surprise while you’re here including shopping vouchers, mince pies and chocolates!
