Barrow Town Centre is definitely worth a visit this Christmas. With a programme of family-friendly events and entertainment, there’s more than meets the eye in Barrow Town Centre.
Christmas officially starts on Saturday 23rd November with the Christmas Light Switch On event on the Town Square outside the Town Hall. This year Barrow BID has invested in new Christmas Lights for the town, so you will see new LED lights along Dalton Rd and Portland Walk, new 2D shapes in the ginnel beside The Forum and new LED lights in town centre trees.
The Christmas Light Switch On event will include a Santa Dash which will see 100s of Santas of all shapes and sizes running around a town centre course. There will be live music and street entertainers in Barrow town centre to fill visitors with festive cheer.
With a wide range of National and Independent Shops and the largest indoor market in Cumbria, Barrow is a great place to find the perfect Christmas gift. With late night shopping on Friday 6th, 13th and 20th December and Sunday opening in the run up to Christmas, you can shop when it is convenient for you.
