Christmas in Fleetwood
Nativity! The Musical - Wednesday 15 - Saturday 18 November 7pm - Marine Hall
Every child in every school has one Christmas wish, to star in a Nativity, and at St Bernadette’s School they’re attempting to mount a musical version!
Only trouble is teacher Mr Maddens has promised that a Hollywood producer is coming to see the show to turn it into a film. Join him, his teaching assistant the crazy Mr Poppy, hilarious children and a whole lot of sparkle and shine as they struggle to make everyone’s Christmas wish come true.
Feel-good, funny and full of yuletide joy, Cou-Cou Theatre Productions presents ‘Nativity! The Musical’, featuring all of the favourite sing-a-long hits from the film including Sparkle and Shine, Nazareth, One Night One Moment, She’s the Brightest Star and a whole host of new songs filled with the spirit of Christmas!
Fleetwood festive AR trail - available from Saturday 25 November and continues until the end of December
The trail follows the story of Nic Clause who is enjoying his stay in Fleetwood. He has arrived for a peaceful holiday with his brother before the busiest time of the year, until something happens that puts all his hard work at risk. Now he needs your help to save Christmas before it’s too late.
Designed to complement Fleetwood’s festive activities, families have five unique and exciting Augmented Reality (AR) experiences to discover, and puzzles to solve to help Nic Clause and save Christmas.
Once the app is downloaded, players can use their phone to follow the trail story by scanning the QR code on snowflake markers found at various locations across the town, launch a different AR challenge at each location and collect something at every stop.
With an original story, bespoke illustration and a uniquely Fleetwood feel, it’s a great way to try something a little different this festive season. Available on Google Play and the App Store.
Festive lights lantern parade and Christmas concert - Saturday 25 November 4:30pm - Ash Street, Fleetwood
Santa will be arriving at 4.30pm on the HMS Blackpool illuminated tram at the Fisherman's Walk tram stop. There will be time for some quick photos before he climbs onto his sleigh and joins the parade.
The parade will get underway at 5pm with new additions to surprise you along the route as it follows the tram tracks before arriving at the Euston Gardens tram stop where there will be a brief pause for the tram passengers to disembark and join the parade. It's then a short walk along the Esplanade to pass the Mount where the hill will be illuminated with projected animated Christmas scenes.
After the concert a grand draw will take place with Santa drawing the winner who will be pressing the switch to turn on the Christmas tree lights in the Marine Gardens. The evening will draw to a close with all concert performers taking to the stage to sing " We wish you a Merry Christmas". Audience participation would be very welcome.
After the concert you might like to retrace your steps along the parade route where a number of shops and cafes will be open for refreshments and Christmas purchases.
