Hire a Santa for Manchester Festive Events and Christmas Parties

Hire a Santa for Manchester Festive Events and Christmas Parties

Manchester is a thriving city and one that loves Christmas. Hosting all kinds of events and festivities, hiring a Santa and elves for these key events is essential.

A date for your diary

We are mere weeks away from the annual Christmas light switch on in Manchester. There is a veritable feast of celebrities turning up for the event including girl group Four of Diamonds who enjoyed recent success on X Factor. It promises to be a great event which thousands expected to gather in Albert Square on November 14th.

Manchester Christmas markets

It’s not uncommon to find Christmas market organisers hiring professional Santa performers and elves in Manchester to attract and entice shoppers and families to their events.

The Christmas markets in Manchester start on Friday, November 8th, a spectacle that can be enjoyed up until Sunday 23rd December.

When you hire festive performers from us, you will have a professional team of festive performers on hand from the start of November right up to the big day itself! The location of some of the markets and stalls have changed, so check it before you go.

Fancy visiting? You’ll find the Manchester Christmas markets open at 10am and close around 7.30pm but extending shopping time until 8pm during December.

The Manchester Ice Village

Another popular spot for people looking to harness the best of the festive spirit is Manchester’s Ice Village. Our winters can be cold but they are rarely cold enough to freeze lakes and ponds. Although we see picture postcards of frozen lakes and rivers from previous winter’s, the last big freeze we experienced in Britain was the Big Freeze of ’63. And we have to rely on man-made rinks, like the one to be found at the Ice Village.

A great way to get into the festive mood, the ice village and skating rink will be open from 11am to 9pm. From 9th November to 5th January, everyone from young families to ice skating newbies can take to the ice.

Attracting families of all ages, why not hire a Santa for an event close to the Manchester ice Village?

Festive food events

As well as gifts and other goods, the festive season is also a prime time for local food and drink producers too. Again, as well as festive promotional staff, many food and drink producers will also hire sampling staff. Giving away tasty little morsels of food or thimbles of drink is a proven method of enticing people to buy.

Green credentials

Everyone is far more conscious of avoiding waste with plastic being the ‘new’ enemy. Organisers of fairs and markets are conscious of this too which is why they are adopting a scheme whereby for £2.50, people can buy a reusable mug that can be refilled at various stalls. It can be used time and again, and not just at this Christmas market but for years to come.

You might also want to consider this when hiring a Santa for a grotto at a Christmas market. Parents and caregivers are keen to avoid hard-to-recycle Christmas gifts. Cut down on excessive packaging too and make wrapping paper recyclable. And consider whether plastic gifts and toys are really the way to go.

Hiring a Santa along with a giggling group of cheeky elves is sure to add an extra sprinkle of Christmas magic to any Manchester event!
