Christmas Launch Day

1st December, 11am-4pm

Lakeside Village

Lakeside Village is set to launch the festive season in style this year, rolling out a one-day Christmas extravaganza jam-packed with entertainment and activities for all the family.

Our Fun packed Seasonal Festivities event, hosted by Trax FM, is set to take place on Sunday 1 December from 11am – 4pm, with a headline set from Doncaster’s very own musical superstars, Bang Bang Romeo taking place at 3pm.

For our younger shoppers, Santa’s Workshop will be open on the day giving children the chance to embark on a magical adventure that leads to Father Christmas himself. The experience costs £5, plus a 50p booking fee. To avoid disappointment, pre-booking for the Workshop experience is strongly advised as large numbers are expected. Book here ( for your Santa’s Workshop experience.

Kids can also have their photo taken with a Snow Fairy and an Elf; enjoy a Rocking Robin Hunt, searching for Rocking Robin around the centre to win a festive treat from our Cadburys store; and get crafty, too, with a Christmas Biscuit Decorating Workshop taking place from 11am – 4pm.

Lakeside’s popular, free-of-charge outdoor cinema will also be returning for one day only, showing Christmas favourites The Grinch and Elf on the big screen.
