Queensgate’s Festive Fiesta 2019 kicks off at 10am with the shopping centre getting into the Christmas spirit with mince pies, mistletoe, candy canes, carols and twinkling lights.

There will be everything from dancing bellboys, nutcracker ballerinas and musical drummers to mischievous elves, the hilarious Ugly Sisters and Rudolph’s reindeer buddies.

And of course Santa’s grotto will make its return to Central Square, where the big man himself will be ready to find out what is on those all-important wish lists.

“The excitement is building and this is going to be the best Festive Fiesta Peterborough has ever seen,” said Rebecca Keefe, marketing manager at Queensgate.

“We’ve been doing our shopping for the Generation Game and the prizes are out of this world. You’ve got to be in it to win it, so come along on the day and get involved!”
