The Mall Blackburn is pulling out all the stops as it prepares for this year’s ultimate Christmas bonanza.
Kicking off on Thursday 19th November, the shopping centre has a whole host of events planned for the festive season, complete with a never seen before magical Christmas Ice Palace, as well as a visit from the Clangers and Blackburn favourite, Carl Fogarty.
Children’s characters, the Clangers, will be in The Mall from 2pm on Thursday 19th November.
Taking over a week to build, the huge Ice Palace will be home to the Snow Queen and Santa Claus himself as well as enchanting shows featuring the Snow Queen, Snow Princess and Snowman.
Carl Fogarty will be on hand to officially open the Ice Palace at 4pm on Thursday 19th November before flicking the switch on Blackburn lights which marks the start of The Mall’s Christmas late night shopping hours.
The shopping centre will be open until 8pm every Thursday from the 19th November to 17th December and everyday from Monday 21st December up until Christmas Eve for any shoppers needing last minute gifts.
Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “Christmas is always a wonderful time of year here at The Mall Blackburn and this year is set to be better than ever!
“The highly anticipated Christmas Ice Palace is now taking shape and we can’t wait to see it in all its glory, I’m sure it will be extremely popular with all of our shoppers.
