On Saturday 23rd December we’re collaborating with the lovely team at Square Pegs again to bring you a day of good tidings and fun. Starting at midday until 3 pm, little ones can get involved with screen printing their very own gift wrap and Christmas cards and have a go at making a geometric Christmas decoration to go on the tree.

There will be live festive tunes from local artist Gina Holt, mince pies and lots of other festive treats (dodgy Christmas jumpers are essential).

All activities are free for little ones to get involved in, so what better way to enjoy the build-up to the big event.

We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the Family Friendly Tourism Venue of the Year at the Marketing Cheshire Awards. More than 60 individuals, initiatives and businesses will compete for top honours at the 13th Marketing Cheshire Annual Awards next month at Chester Racecourse.

The awards celebrate excellence and outstanding achievement by local businesses and individuals with the winners of some categories going on to represent Cheshire at the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2018, and it is an honour to have been nominated.

The nominees represent the great variety of businesses that contribute to Cheshire’s visitor economy which was worth £3.3 billion and employed over 42,000 people in 2016.

Katrina Michel, Chief Executive, Marketing Cheshire said: “The quality and high standard of entries in this year’s awards demonstrates the strength of our visitor economy in Cheshire, which grew by 8.8 per cent in 2016. Tourism is still an underrated sector. It is worth nearly £130 billion which is 2.5 times the automotive sector and is growing faster than digital. Cheshire is home to a growing number of globally recognised tourism brands and a growing group of world class tourism professionals. The award ceremony which will take place at Chester Racecourse on 23 November will celebrate their achievements and hopefully reveal some stars of the future.”

We’ll keep you updated with how we get on!
