This year, Cleethorpes will be illuminating its Christmas tree on St Peter’s Avenue on Friday 2 December. The Christmas tree has been sponsored by Parkway Cinema and characters from their forthcoming Panto, Pinocchio, will be attending for you to meet plus music and entertainment.
Alongside the event, an evening Christmas Makers Market will take place at St Peter’s church hall featuring local makers and artists. Open 4.30pm to 7.30pm with visits from Santa.
There will be a road closure from 4.00pm to 7.00pm on St Peter’s Avenue between Albert Road and the roundabout at Cambridge Street/Mill Road.
At 5pm outside St Peter’s Church, join the fun and sing along with your favourite ‘Ice Queen’, ‘Snow Princess’ and friends, at 5.15pm – why not meet them, have photographs taken and ask them to sign autographs, all for free. Cheeky Charlie the Elf will be performing his favourite Christmas tunes from 5.15pm.
Parkway Cinema’s panto cast of Pinocchio will be in attendance for the countdown to the official tree lighting. The lights will be illuminated by the cast at approximately 6.15pm.
Themed stilt walkers will be in attendance for more fun photo opportunities, and you may bump into some ‘cheeky elves’.
The RNLI will be in attendance and collecting for charity with Stormy Stan and Rookie Reindeer. They will also be publicising their festive Reindeer Run which takes place in Cleethorpes on Sunday 4 December, so please give what you can afford.
Selected businesses on Sea View Street will open subsequently for late night shopping on the evening.
