Christmas officially begins at Regent on Saturday 23rd November when the big man himself, Santa Claus, arrives in the centre at 12pm, before switching on the town centre Christmas lights with the help of boyband, Five at 5:30pm.
From the 23rd November, visitors to the centre can expect to see Santa and his elf walking around the centre, posing for photos and chatting to customers. You might even get a sweet treat.
The popular Elf Workshops are back for another year. Each child who attends will leave Regent as a certified elf, complete with an official certificate and a free elf hat.
Post your letters to Santa before the 18th December and get a reply direct from the north pole. The big red Regent postbox will be in the centre beside our new Christmas tree from the 23rd November with regular collections to ensure swift replies.

School Choir Competition
Our Annual School Choir competition is back for its 6th year! We have been as busy as elves visiting lots of local schools for the preliminary stages and have been amazed at the talent on offer. Only 10 schools will get through to live performances and we’ll be letting the successful schools know in the coming days.
Catch them in the centre during the first two weeks of December and vote for your favourite school here
closes Friday 13th December at noon. The winning choir wins £500 for their
music department so make sure you cast your vote and make it a Christmas to
remember for one lucky choir.
