It's a Winter Wonderland at Wilton Shopping Centre on Friday 16th November as Santa, Mrs Claus and their elves arrive at Wilton Shopping Centre. The centre is extending a warm invitation to families of all sizes to join them for turning on of the Christmas lights at 7pm on Friday 16th November. The magical experience continues as Elsa and Olaf from Disney's Frozen join up with Santa to make the party that extra special. “We are really looking forward to Christmas this year at Wilton.” said Susanne Irwin, Manager of Wilton Shopping Centre. “We have so much to offer shoppers this festive season with a gorgeous choice of gifts, free customer parking and over 60 shops under one roof. We even have the elves’ free gift-wrapping station ensuring that all gifts bought here are wrapped by Santa’s little helpers; Wilton Shopping Centre is the perfect place to start your Christmas shopping this year!” Santa Claus is waiting to meet all the boys and girls at Santa’s Grotto and to hear their wishes for Christmas. So, you had better get your list ready for the big man himself and go along to get your annual picture with Santa taken. There will be face painting, balloon modelling, and lots of singalong Frozen fun! Maybe you would like to take some time to capture the true heart of Christmas and remember loved ones in the hustle and bustle of Christmas at Wilton Shopping Centre’s Remembrance Tree. To take away some of the holiday stress, Wilton Shopping Centre have a gift-wrapping service at the Customer Service Desk. This is a free service with donations going to Cork City Hospital Children's Club and Brú Columbanus. If you are looking to give the perfect gift to that special someone who has everything then why not give them a Wilton Shopping Centre gift voucher. Gift vouchers are on sale in denominations of €10, €20 and €50 and can suit every budget. Opening hours have been extended throughout December, and the Wilton Shopping Centre will be open from 9am to 9pm Monday to Friday, 9am to 7pm on Saturdays and Sunday’s opening hours run from 11am to 6pm.
