Sunderland seasonal screenings get in the festive spirit

frost-village-jpgSHOPPERS wanting to take a well-earned break and enjoy some festive fun can make their way to Sunderland’s Frost Village this weekend.

Movies ranging from a Christmas classic to some family favourites will be screened outdoors at Keel Square, where visitors can enjoy one of the free shows.

And a whole host of new exhibitors will also be arriving at the winter market, providing the perfect opportunity for anyone wanting a last minute, unique gift.

The Frost Village has already welcomed more than 15,000 visitors since it opened and hopes are high that a full programme of activities over the next few days will further boost the figures.

On Saturday at 11am visitors can enjoy White Christmas on the big screen, followed by two special showings the following day – Gremlins at 11am and Scrooged at 3pm.

10 December is also the day to see a real seasonal showcase of local talent, with Ha’Way in A Manger running from 2pm to 5pm at Keel Square.
A whole host of young people, choirs and musicians from churches, schools and community groups will be dancing and singing throughout the afternoon, to create a really festive feel to the city centre.

And in between times there will be plenty of chances for people of all ages to take a spin at the Frost Village’s ice rink and visit the Merry Monk bar, along with checking out the new additions to the market.

This weekend stalls include jewellery, leathercrafts, cakes, furniture and cosmetics, along with a number of retro gift ideas and original pieces of art.
Gemma Dishman, Marketing and Communications Manager from Sunderland BID which has organised the Frost Village said there was something taking place to suit everyone this weekend.

“For anyone wanting to really get into the spirit of Christmas, there’s nowhere better than the Frost Village this weekend,” she said.

“It’s the perfect place for some family fun and we’ve gathered some fantastic stall holders with some brilliant last minute gift ideas for everyone.

“People have really enjoyed the ice skating so far and we’re hoping that even more visitors will turn out in force and give it a try.”
