Blokes Shopping Day and Christmas Classic Car Meet

  • Date: 16th December 2018
  • Location: Melton Mowbray Town Centre
  • Time: 10:00 - 16:00
  • Cost: FREE

Not finished (or started) your Christmas Shopping yet ? Have no fear the Melton Christmas Elves are here.

Blokes Shopping

Have you left your shopping until the last minute, or perhaps not even started it yet? Then Sir (because you are probably a man) don’t fret as the Melton Elves are coming to Melton town centre !

Christmas is meant to be exciting so leaving your shopping to the last minute surely only makes you much more Christmassy. Santa doesn’t deliver his presents in advance of Christmas Eve for an easier life does he !

So to help make your Christmassy shopping experience even more enjoyable the Melton Town Centre Managers have dedicated a day to take the stress out of your shopping.

Head to Melton Mowbray’s Market Place on Sunday 16th and look for the two elves - surrounded with an array of gift tags, ribbons and gift paper to suit all tastes.  Leave your gifts with the elves and they will send you packing with vouchers for coffee or a beer or two so whilst you relax in the warm surroundings of The Cutting Room pub or the friendly More Coffee Shop. Upon your return collect all your purchases, professionally wrapped and labelled, to find their rightful place under your Christmas Tree.

The service is absolutely FREE (including the drinks vouchers!) so why worry about choosing gift wrap or running out of cellotape ! Let the Elves do it all for you – that is their job after all !

To add to the ambiance there will be a special Christmas Vintage & Classic car meet, gift and craft stalls and entertainment by 103 The Eye.

You will be surprised at the amount of shops open as local businesses come on board to support the event by opening their doors to Sunday trading. Don’t forget that all car parks are free as well !

The event runs from 10.00am until 4.00pm.
