Fox Valley prepares for the centre’s big festive weekend

21 December 2017

The team at Fox Valley are gearing up for a busy diary of events for Christmas weekend starting with the last indoor Saturday Market

The Saturday Market will run 10am-4pm on Saturday 23rd December in the market hall between Sports Direct and M&Co. There are a range of fantastic local traders lined up with everything from fresh produce, to sweet treats and handmade gifts.

The Market will be accompanied by entertainment from local teen guitarist Alfie Wright who will be performing in the band stand from 12pm.

There is also Christmas Eve entertainment planned by the world famous Grimethorpe Colliery Brass Band who are retuning for a very special festive performance.

From 12pm-2pm on 24th December the band will play festive tunes in the centre’s new band stand located in the piazza area.

Earlier this year Grimethorpe Band played to thousands of spectators as part of the climactic final leg of the Tour de Yorkshire which finished on the centre.

Fox Valley is also preparing for huge Boxing Day starting after Christmas with big fashion retailers taking part including Next, M&Co and Sandersons Department Store. 

Pontis Italian Kitchen is set to host their spectacular New Year’s Eve party on Sunday 31st December which consists of a champagne reception and a three course meal.

Fox Valley Centre Manager Annabel Plumtree said: “There is lots happening at Fox Valley this weekend as we get ready for Christmas, we’re really excited to be welcoming the Grimethorpe Colliery Brass Band on Christmas Eve again.”
