THE Chimes Shopping Centre and the Uxbridge Gazette are searching for the most festive family in Uxbridge, to turn on the shopping centre’s Christmas lights.
On Sunday, November 18 between 12pm - 4pm, the Chimes will officially kick off the Christmas season with the switch on of the centre’s Christmas lights. With performances from X Factor star Marcus Collins, up-and-coming band M.I.T.S.O.T.U, as well as local carol singers, it’s an afternoon not to be missed.
Chimes marketing manager Donna Watson said: “We’re revealing brand new Christmas lights and decorations this year, as well as a very special Santa’s Grotto, which we’re all extremely excited about.
“The centre will look spectacular and we’d like to offer Uxbridge’s most festive family the opportunity to officially start Christmas here at the Chimes.”
As well as switching on the lights, the winning family will take part in a meet and greet with Marcus Collins, be treated to a VIP meal on the night at Bella Italia and receive Chimes goody bags.
To be in with the chance for you and your family to win this great prize, simply email Chimesfirstname.lastname@example.org explaining, in no more than 50 words, why your family is Uxbridge’s most festive. Photos will also be accepted.
The winning family will be notified by Friday, November 15 and must be free to attend from 11am to 4.30pm on Sunday, November 18.
