Get in the festive spirit with new Christmas Comes to Town campaign

From festive feasts to merry markets, residents are being encouraged to get in the festive spirit as a new Christmas campaign arrives across the district.

Christmas Comes to Town, a new campaign by Malvern Hills District Council, takes place from November until Christmas Day, across all five town centres in the district.

The campaign has been created as part of the council's new Town Centre Plans to support local town centres and businesses.

Town centres involved include Great Malvern, Barnards Green, Malvern Link, Tenbury Wells and Upton upon Severn.

The campaign will shine a light on fun, family activities and free Christmas events across the town centres, including:

  • Christmas markets and events
  • Christmas shopping guides
  • Festive food and drink guides
  • Christmas parades
  • Free Parking from 1 - 24 December, between 3pm and 11pm
  • Free Family Festive Trail (Elf themed)

Cllr Daniel Walton, Portfolio Holder for Tourism and Economic Development at Malvern Hills District Council, said: "We are really looking forward to supporting our local traders during the festive season with this great new campaign. Our town centres have everything needed to get families into the spirit of Christmas, and we would encourage everyone to continue to support our local businesses by shopping locally and taking advantage of the free family entertainment on offer."

The campaign will run on Malvern Hills District Council's social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) and in the local news. There will also be blogs with further information on the Visit the Malverns website.
