Shopping centre celebrates its biggest event of the year, the Christmas Parade

26th November 2019

Families visiting the Peterlee Shopping Centre this weekend were excited to join their biggest yearly Christmas spectacular.

Castle Dene Shopping Centre brought back their amazing Christmas Parade, which featured an afternoon of festive entertainment including Christmas music from Sun FM, local performances from amazing local dance groups and singers, then the main event – Santa’s Parade.

Elsa, Anna and Olaf also performed their greatest songs then joined the parade, meeting and greeting children and shoppers. The day also featured Christmas market stalls, traditional fairground rides, free face painting and much more.

Suzanne Chaney, Centre Manager, it was a great success and despite the horrendous weather our shoppers still came along.

She said: “This was undoubtedly our biggest event of the year and I thank all the amazing performers who were involved on the day.

“I was also thrilled to see so many of our retailers and local traders getting involved in the event, the day brought the local community together and filled the centre with Christmas spirit.
