Join in with Boscombe’s ‘Countdown to Christmas’ on Saturday December 1st 2012, courtesy of our friends at the Coastal BID (www.coastalbid.co.uk/)
Head down to the Sovereign Shopping Centre where from 10am – 4pm, you’ll be able to keep the kids entertained with face painting and a host of children’s entertainers. Prepare to be amazed by magic tricks and balloon modelling too! Between 2pm – 4pm the adults will also be treated to some timeless classics from the 50s and 60s.
The Precinct comes fully alive in the afternoon as a series of entertainers will take to the stage (2pm – 5pm), offering jazz, storytelling, dance displays, a Punch and Judy show, juggling elves and angels on stilts!
As the natural light begins to fade, make your way to Boscombe seafront for a display from ‘FLAME’ the amazing flame thrower, before heading to see our little sister Urban Reef! Cosy up on the Reef deck, grab a blanket and tuck into a hog roast, sup on a glass of mulled wine and enjoy some fantastic live music from the ‘Luke Adams band’ (5.30pm) who will be playing on the balcony out towards the sea – dance and sing along to a host of modern covers and some Christmassy tunes.
And to end your day grab a glow stick and join in with the countdown to the grand finale – the fireworks at around 6.15pm. If you’ve done all of that, you’ll be truly ready to welcome in the festive season in style.
Love the Urban Beach crew. Xx
