Christmas Schedule Announced For Shoppers

Monday November 17 2014

FROZEN characters, Postman Pat, Santa and a whole host of festive treats will greet Barnsley's shoppers this Christmas.

As the countdown begins, the Alhambra has unveiled details of its programme of events, which kicks off with the grand opening of its Christmas grotto on Friday December 5.

Late-night shopping will take place every Friday in December until 7.30pm, with the shopping centre being open until 6pm on other days.

Postman Pat and his faithful cat Jess will be present on December 12, while Frozen favourites Anna and Elsa will appear with Olaf the snowman the following Friday.

Marketing manager Steph Higham said: "We're all very excited for Christmas. This year's been a great one for the Alhambra and we want to end it in style."

Sounds lovely.
This will work better for me than the Wednesday nights.
But. I know that Wednesdays were better for quite a few people that I know for various reasons.

I think the decision to open on Friday instead of Wednesdays will backfire on the Alhambra, can you image what Mad Friday`s going to be like in town for shoppers when all the revellers have had a few bevvies.

yes late nights used to be until 9pm but since town goes empty at about 7:30 it's not worth it

When I used to work in the Alhambra we were busy right up until closing time at 8pm on late night shopping days. It's a shame to split the days, seems rather like the centre managers just expected all the shops to follow suit. I'll be sticking with the Wednesday nights as much as I can.

Sorry to sound stupid but this means they're opening late on Friday but the other shops are still doing late night on Wednesday's?
