Squire’s Garden Centres caught the Christmas spirit last week with festive events at two of its Surrey outlets.
The retailer’s Badshot Lea and Shepperton branches both held ‘Prepare for Christmas’ evening shopping events.
Customers browsed Squire’s selection of Christmas goods, while enjoying a complimentary glass of wine, live music, a Christmas card making demonstration, and a charity raffle which raised £390 for local charities Change of Scene and White Lodge Centre.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Waverley attended the event at Badshot Lea, and enjoyed it so much that they will be back to see Squire’s new Traditional Circus.
This is one of two new 60-minute shows taking place over the festive period. ‘Santa’s Got Talent’ runs from November 26 to December 24. Squire’s says: ‘Santa is throwing a party for his elves to thank them for their hard work sending presents to children all over the world’. The audience will watch as circus acts audition for the party and help Santa choose by voting for their favourite act.The event features clowns and acts including juggling, diabolo, aerial straps/ropes & balancing acts. After the show, children in the audience will receive a wrapped present from Santa.
After Christmas, the ‘Traditional Circus’ takes place from December 27 to December 31, featuring ‘a succession of world-class acts’.
Meanwhile, Santa’s Grand Arrival takes place at Badshot Lea at 10am on Saturday November 26 and Saturday December 3 in his horse-drawn carriage.
Celebrating 80 years, Squire’s is a family-owned garden centre group with 15 centres across West London, Surrey, Berkshire and Sussex. Badshot Lea is the largest.
