Festive film triple bill for Darlington town centre
BIG screen festive entertainment is heading to Darlington for the last two Saturdays before Christmas.
A giant screen is being erected in the Market Square which will play a trio of festive films starting at 11am with How the Grinch Stole Christmas, followed at 2pm by Polar Express and Miracle in 34th Street at 5pm.
The triple bill will play over both Saturdays; December 14 and 21.
The initiative has been brought to the town by Distinct Darlington and its manager Alex Hirst said: “All three are great family films and they’re guaranteed to bring some festive spirit to shoppers and residents alike.
“Plenty of chairs will also be provided so they can rest their weary feet during a busy days’ shopping.”
Along with the film screenings, the town centre boasts a variety of activities and entertainment in the run up to Christmas, including children’s fairground rides and the Christmas Wonderland Ice Rink.
The Market Square also is hosting the Christingle Market from December 12 to 19 and the Cornmill Shopping Centre is housing a Giving to Life Tree where shoppers can leave a message to a loved one for a £2 donation to St Teresa’s Hospice.
The Mayor’s annual carol concert takes place at 6.30pm on Tuesday (December 17) with performances by Cockerton Silver Band and a laser light show.
