Get in the Christmas spirit at Crystal Peaks
Schoolchildren to sing at shopping mall
The sound of Christmas comes to Crystal Peaks on December 21 as children from neighbouring schools sing a selection of their festive favourites.
Pupils from the Westfield family of Schools - which includes three nursery infant schools, three junior schools, three primary schools and a secondary school - will be outside the award winning shopping centre’s East Mall from 6pm as they present a special concert of Christmas songs for evening shoppers.
“We always work very closely with the Westfield Family of School and are delighted to welcome them again on this special Christmas evening,” said centre manager Lee Greenwood.
Before that, on Sunday December 17 at 4.30pm, the Crystal Peaks Food Court will be the setting for the centre’s annual carol service, led by the Rev Stephen Horton of Crystal Peaks Church.
“The Crystal Peaks Church is very much a part of the centre’s life,” Lee explained.
“A few years ago we thought that it would be good to organise a carol service so that we could have a little of the original Christmas meaning on display.
“The feedback we receive is always excellent, with many people making a special trip to the centre to sing carols and it’s now become an important part of Christmas life at Crystal Peaks and one that many of our visitors really look forward to.”
