Christmas at Crystal Peaks

Christmas At Crystal Peaks

Sunday 27th November

This holiday season at Crystal Peaks we are bringing you not one but two of Raymond Biggs’ most famous characters that epitomise Christmas – The Snowman and his Snowdog – stars of one of the greatest animated television films of all time and a much-loved classic.

The Snowman has been a Christmas tradition since 1982 when Channel 4 commissioned the Oscar-nominated animated television film based on his 1978 picture book. The Snowdog followed 30 years later.

Families and shoppers will be able to experience the magic of these two popular characters in the Centre where they will be spreading joy and goodwill by meeting and greeting loyal fans at intervals from 11.30am on the day. Oh, and don’t forget your camera, it’s a great photo opportunity!

Have your photo or selfie taken with him and let The Gruffalo magic come to life – but wait…. after all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – or is there? Find out for yourself!
