The Swindon Designer Outlet is inviting guests to celebrate Christmas and take part in its winter festivities.

The shopping centre will be hosting a variety of events for the public to enjoy this festive season. 

Tina Cumpstey, Centre Manager at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Swindon, said: "McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Swindon is ready to welcome guests to experience a magical holiday season, creating memorable moments for families and children. We can’t wait to see everyone’s reactions as they join us in Centre for the festive season.”  

There will be Breakfast with Santa held at Giraffe from Saturday 4 December. For an extra treat, guests are encouraged to share the name of the little ones who will be attending breakfast for a more personalised surprise experience.  

Giraffe can be contacted on 01793 640 440 to book your place and join Santa and his elves for a fun-filled morning on one of the following dates: 

  • Saturday 4 December from 9:30 - 11am

McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Swindon have also teamed up with local business, SAF-VR to offer children a virtual ride in Santa’s sleigh. The immersive VR experience is said to offer an unforgettable adventure, bringing the North Pole to Swindon. 

Guests will be able to shop for that perfect gift from a selection of premium brands with up to 60% off RRP such as Yankee, Molton Brown and The Cosmetics Company.

At the Centre’s cafés and restaurants, visitors can tuck into festive treats like buttery mince pies, turkey and cranberry toasties, and hot chocolates laced with gingerbread syrup. 

A spokesperson for the shopping centre added: "For extra treats this season, look no further than the cozy Christmas market, offering homemade refreshments from Chocolate kisses, German Bratwurst, Christmas dinner Yorkshire pudding wraps, crepes, fudge and a variety of cheese and chutneys. 

"All are waiting to be discovered in the charming huts throughout the Centre. Those looking for a memorable gift can also pick up a personalised Christmas decoration." 

The Centre says it will offer plenty of picture-perfect moments to capture the festive shots. Santa’s sleigh returns along with a gigantic wreath, positioned around the Centre, which aims to give visitors the chance to capture their perfect Christmas selfie.

Shopper can include #swindonoutlet on the Instagram post for a chance to be featured on the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Swindon Instagram page.  

Members of the public are also invited to make use of the extended opening hours from 22 November, Monday to Friday 10am – 9pm, Saturday 9am – 8pm and Sunday 10am – 6pm.
