Stockton Town Centre is getting ready to sparkle more than ever before this Christmas.
It is just over two weeks until the launch of this year’s Stockton Sparkles festival and already larger than life decorations are arriving in the Town Centre.
Yesterday (8 November) a gigantic dazzling gift box was positioned above the Shambles Market Hall, meanwhile a giant glittering bauble was placed on Dovecot Street.
They will be among several extra-large, illuminated installations which will form part of this year’s spectacular festive lighting.
Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, Councillor Norma Wilburn, said: “Stockton Town Centre will look magical this Christmas. The giant gift box and bauble are just the first of an array of extra-large decorations which will make Stockton Town Centre glisten.
“Anyone who visits Stockton Town Centre in the run up to Christmas is in for a treat. The town will be a shimmering winter wonderland this year – a perfect back drop for shopping, socialising or simply soaking up the fantastic festive atmosphere.”
The super-sized decorations will be switched on during the launch of Stockton Sparkles which will take place between 5.30pm and 7pm on Thursday 26 November.
