This Christmas, Gunwharf Quays introduces its new and exciting festive attraction, ‘Gunwharf Quays Christmas Village’, opening Saturday 13th November 2021 in the Plaza and running until Sunday 2nd January 2022.
To celebrate the launch on 13th November, and to add to the Christmas festivities, Gunwharf Quays has invited the Kings Theatre Christmas Pantomime cast members to the event for a meet and greet. From 4pm the Jack and the Beanstalk cast, including Love Islander Amy Hart, will be walking around the Christmas Village, and performing a mini-sequence.
‘Gunwharf Quays Christmas Village’ will follow a traditional European style, with craft and gift traders in wooden chalets selling all the best Christmas gifts. Surrounding The Christmas Village will be rows of snow-covered Christmas trees along with selfie spots using giant Instagrammable Christmas decorations.
The highlight of the festive attraction will be the 22.5 metre high Giant Observation Wheel, providing guests with spectacular views of Portsmouth’s harbour. The Observation Wheel will be accompanied by other traditional carnival rides, including a festive Carousel.
For those guests that are looking for some much needed relaxation and refreshments after their Christmas shopping, they can head to the festive ‘Alpine Lodge Bar’. Imported from Germany, the ‘Alpine Lodge Bar’ will be serving warm spiced mulled wine as well as beers and lagers from local, and imported, breweries. To compliment the seasonal beverages, there will also be a ‘Pyramid Swing Grill’ serving traditional, high quality, German Bratwurst sausages.
Yvonne Clay, Centre Director at Gunwharf Quays, comments: “We are delighted to welcome the new ‘Gunwharf Quays Christmas Village’. Being able to offer our guests a fun and festive experience after a day of shopping is a great pleasure and we can’t wait to share the Christmas spirit with our community.”
Gunwharf Quays Christmas Village will be open Sunday-Wednesday 10am-6pm and Thursday-Saturday 10am-8pm.
