From Northfield Town Centre Partnership:
FIRST WE BROUGHT THE BEACH, NOW THE NORTH POLE!
The North Pole is coming to Northfield this weekend with Northfield Wonderland children’s event in the town centre on Saturday 15th to Sunday 16th December between 10am and 4pm each day.
The ambitious event has been organised and funded by Northfield BID (Business Improvement District) in order to draw people into the town centre and bring the streets alive with free children’s activities. Northfield Town Centre Partnership and Birmingham PlayCare Network are also supporting the event.
Following the huge success of this summer’s urban beach event ‘Northfield by the Sea’, businesses are putting on a programme of events throughout the year that appeal to families.
Children will receive a Northfield Town Centre passport and can ‘earn’ stamps by helping with free arts and crafts activities in our replica Elf Workshop, including making Christmas decorations and decorating gingerbread. Once they have collected four stamps, they can graduate as an ‘Official Northfield Elf’.
Other entertainment includes Santa’s grotto, the largest snowman bouncy castle in the UK, face painting and festive scenes including 50 adorable penguins playing in the snow.
To coincide with the event, Northfield Christmas Market will also be held in the town centre on Saturday 15th December between 10am to 4pm, with stalls selling a range of goodies from food, gifts, jewellery to vintage accessories.
Liz Newton, BID Manager for Northfield BID, said: “The new Northfield Business Improvement District (BID) is great news for Northfield and we have many more exciting projects in the pipeline as part of our ‘more reasons to visit Northfield’ campaign.
“We are determined to put Northfield on the map for feel-good events and Northfield Wonderland promises to be another fantastic event for children.”
Northfield Wonderland will take place in Price’s Square (near the Post Office) on Northfield’s main high street.
