Harvey ThreeChristmas officially came to Harlow on Saturday 14 November – with an all-singing, all-dancing festive extravaganza at The Harvey Centre.

Shoppers may have spotted a number of unusual characters during the day, including maids a milking, French hens and a partridge in a Pear Tree, as the centre brought to life the famous Christmas song, ‘Twelve Days of Christmas.’

Harlow Playhouse’s Snow White, ‘living’ Christmas trees, roaming candy canes, snowmen and other Christmas characters also greeted visitors on Saturday, alongside free festive face painting and giveaways.

For shoppers wanting to meet Father Christmas himself, The Harvey Centre grotto is now open. Set in a beautiful festive scene with woodland creatures, the grotto is open seven days a week and tickets are priced from £4.50 (with a gift or picture included).

In addition to The Harvey Centre, Harlow Council and the Water Gardens also put on a host of seasonal entertainment for the town, including Frozen characters and local performances.

With a range of both big brands, like Primark, HMV and Argos, and independent stores, The Harvey Centre has everything you could need for the festive season, from party wear and accessories to a wide range of gifts and food. To ensure shoppers get the most out of their festive shop, the centre will be staying open until 8pm on the last three Thursdays before Christmas (3rd, 10th and 17th).

Bryan Young, The Harvey Centre’s Manager, said: “Last Saturday was the official launch of Christmas here in Harlow and we wanted to make sure it was bigger and better than ever. The centre had a host of Christmas characters and entertainment to really get our shoppers into the festive spirit. With our magical grotto and late night shopping evenings (3, 10 and 17 December), we’re giving our shoppers the best festive shopping experience.”
