Lilian Prime MS Centre Christmas Market with Santa
During the lead up to Christmas, we organise a Christmas market at the centre. We also decorate the centre with Christmas trees and other decorations and create a festive atmosphere with music and sometimes, we even have a local artist to come and sing some carols.
We have around 12 stalls selling beautiful handcrafted items such as Christmas decorations, gifts for the home, locally handcrafted pottery and much more!
If you want to help a local artist as well as buy that special gift, then this is your opportunity to do so. We have so many talented people who are local to us and it is great to be in a position to help them whilst having a great time yourself.
Alongside the craft stalls, we have Santa who is ready to have a chat with the little ones and give them a gift in his Grotto. We also have a room full of activities they can do whilst you go around the stalls looking for that special gift.
Mince pies and mulled wine are on offer along with other refreshments in a café area that is set up on the first floor. There are homemade cakes as well as shop-bought goodies. All are very competitively priced and affordable.
A small entrance fee is payable at the event and we do discounts for families.
As always, to help us fundraise whilst having a good time, we have a raffle or tombola and sometimes both. Our wonderful volunteers come to help with the event as always, and it is due to them we are able to hold such functions and raise much-needed funds.
