Clarendon Square’s Christmas event is not to be missed

Visitors to Clarendon Square are in for a sleighful of fun as the shopping centre spreads the Christmas cheer, with the arrival of a furry friend from the North Pole.

In celebration of the most wonderful time of the year, young shoppers and their families are invited to meet Bjorn, a life-size animatronic polar bear. The four-legged guest will be meeting and greeting the good boys and girls of Hyde on Saturday 8 December between 11am and 4pm at the centre’s winter wonderland on the mall.

Bjorn the Bear and his handler will be entertaining shoppers for 20 minutes at a time at 11am, 1pm and 3pm, and children will have a very cool opportunity to pet Bjorn and take photos with him. The fun doesn’t stop there, oh no ho ho! There will also be Christmas crafts and activities throughout the centre, with indoor and outdoor markets for the whole family to enjoy a fantastically festive day out.
Sophie Stephenson, centre manager at Clarendon Square Shopping Centre, said the excitement for Christmas is snowballing and its activity would add to the merriment. She commented: “The festive season is finally here, and we can’t wait for families to get into the spirit at our Bjorn the Bear event.

“Our animal friend will bring some wonderland magic to Hyde, with plenty to keep everyone thoroughly entertained during their Christmas preparations at the centre.”
