In snow time it's Christmas!


Or at least it will be VERY soon!

And Houndshill Shopping Centre is the place to be in the run up to the best season of all.

We’ve got Santa, his elves, sweet treats and a very special competition for you in the next few weeks!

Santa's Grotto

Santa arrives at the centre on December 2nd and is here every weekend until the big day so bring your kids (young, old, and the big kids too) between 10.30am and 4.30pm on Saturday and Sunday. For just £1 you’ll get to meet the big man, get a treat while you wait and all proceeds will be going to our charity partner for Christmas, Aspired Futures.

Win a Nintendo Switch!

We also have an amazing competition launching on Monday 4th December (on until Thursday 21st December)! The Elfie Selfie Challenge will give you the chance to win a Nintendo Switch game package – worth over £300! – in time for Christmas.

All you have to do is grab a free Elfie hat, put it on, take a selfie and upload it to our Facebook (link) site. You even get to keep the hat!

Stay chilled with late night shopping!

Christmas is a stressful time of the year and we want to take that stress away with longer opening hours throughout the season. Our Late Night Thursdays this year will be on the 7th, 14th and 21st where we will be open till 8pm and there’s FREE PARKING after 5pm! We are also open late on Friday, December 22nd until 8pm.

We close on Christmas Day but re-open on Boxing Day where the Next Sale starts at 6am and we open at 5am.

From January 1st we open as normal from 9am to 5pm.

So, it’s time to wrap up warm and head out the only place you will need this Christmas.

Let’s shop, eat, drink, take an Elfie Selfie, and be merry!
