Christmas Events

This Christmas, the Cornmill Centre in Darlington is spreading goodwill and festive cheer with a fun-loving schedule of free family fun and late-night shopping, starting Thursday 22nd November. Tis certainly the season to be jolly as the Cornmill has a different Christmas activity planned every week in the run up to the big day:

Advent Calendar Facebook Competition (1st – 22ndDecember)
Look out for the return of the Cornmill’s popular social media competition from the 1st December. Customers will be given the chance to win the advent calendar’s mystery prize every day until 21st, and on 22nd December one lucky winner will win all the prizes given away through the month, walking away with £1000 worth of gifts just in time for Christmas.

Santa’s Grotto (Weekends from 1st – 23rd December)
Santa and his Elves take time out of their Christmas schedules to visit the Cornmill every weekend in December. Don’t miss the chance to see Santa in his charmed grotto.

Living Topiary Trees (1st December)
Head to the Cornmill to be in with a chance of catching a glimpse of their magical living topiary trees, set to enchant the centre at various intervals throughout the day.

Face Painting and Balloon Modelling (1st December)
Between 11am and 4pm, your little angels can be transformed into Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer or Olaf the snowman with festive face painting. Plus, you can take home a joyful balloon creation.

Please be advised that due to demand there may be queues throughout the day.

Christmas Decoration Workshop (8th December)
From 11am until 4pm, use sparkles, paint and glitter to get messy and make your own Christmas decorations! Spruce up your tree at home with decorations so colourful and sparkly that they’ll spread merriment to everyone who sees them.

Please be advised that products are subject to availability and due to demand there may be queues throughout the day.

Christmas Garland Workshop (15th December)
Making spirits bright, the centre invites shoppers to create their very own statement Christmas garland* from 11am. Used to bring festive cheer to the home, your personalised Christmas garland can be draped over your mantel, wrapped around your banister or laid across your table.

Please be advised that products are subject to availability and due to demand there may be queues throughout the day.
* Please note this is limited to 1 Garland per family

Elfie Selfie (December 22nd)
One very special Elf has taken time off from helping Santa at the North Pole. He loves nothing more than having his picture taken and carries a large festive photo frame wherever he goes! Will you be lucky enough to get an Elfie Selfie?
