We want people to bring their family and friends and enjoy all that we have to offer at this time of year with activities perfect for all members of your festive group.”

The festivities begin on Sunday, November 26 when visitors will have the chance to enter the Mill Gate hall of fame by taking on the snowboard simulator between 11am and 4pm.

On the same day, shoppers can enjoy community spirit as the Bury Lantern Parade will be passing through the Mill Gate after 3.30pm on its way to Fire Installation in Kay Gardens.
