What’s On this Christmas

We’re dreamin’ of a bright Christmas…

It’s nearly Christmas in Southport and that can only mean one thing…all is fun…all is bright…

This year, we’re pulling out all the stops! For a Christmas to remember, look close to home and join us in Southport. We’ve got loads of activities for you to enjoy over the festive season.

We love nothing more than getting our families together and enjoying a festive day out in our favourite town. Southport in the Christmas season is magical and full of sparkles - Victorian streets are decked with lights, there’s proper pantos, grotto’s galore, our beautifully lit tree, Christmas carols, and if you look extra hard you might manage to meet the man in red.

Wrap up for some outdoor music - an afternoon of carols and songs around the Christmas Tree is planned for the Festive Fun Day on November 19, with the Bandstand will be the focus of festivities. There’s a whole sleigh load of family fun planned for across November and December you can find out more about event dates and tickets here.

Follow the Gingerbread Trail around the town for your chance to win an iPad! Find out more here.

Plus, it’s a great chance to sneak into the shops for some final shopping when you see that perfect thing in the window.

Once you’ve shopped til’ you drop and can’t carry any more presents…pop over to Southport Market for some proper Christmas cheer. There’s a host of live music, festive films, elf craft workshops, Frozen experiences, and themed events. There’s plenty of fun for all the family at Southport Market. Enjoy some good food, good company and good times with an extra sparkly entrance!

What would a real Christmas be without a show and without a real panto? We’ve got it all here this Christmas. The Atkinson's packed programme includes the traditional fare of Aladdin, A Christmas Carol, and a brand-new version of Snow White. Find out more here.

And The Little Theatre is showcasing a production of Sleeping Beauty, the Bijou Cinema is screening classic Christmas movies and Victoria Park is showing your favourite Christmas Films in our outdoor drive thru. There’s so much more going on this year!

Little ones only have eyes for one person at Christmas and there are opportunities to see Santa in Southport. Make your way to Wayfarers’ Arcade to find Santa in his grotto - accompanied by mischievous elves. Later in December, there’s a Frozen grotto to visit with Ana and Elsa. Make sure you book your visit as they are very popular! 

The party season is a wonderful time to get together loved ones - after a long day shopping, and seeing the lights, gather around a long table in one of our lovely restaurants or pubs and enjoy your holidays.

Come and see us this Christmas, we’ve got so many things planned to make your holiday season special. With love from Southport.
