Christmas at Bents has been under wraps for the past ten weeks. But on Wednesday 16th October at 2pm, the wait was over. This years themed displays are now on show.

Hundreds of customers joined Bents for the occasion. They followed Father Christmas, who made a special appearance, into this year’s magical wonderland.
Matthew Bent, Managing Director said: “Christmas has been a part of our family business for as long as I can remember. It never loses any of its charm or excitement. Especially when we’re surrounded by such beautiful and inspirational displays.

“We have our very own team of set designers and joiners who work together to create our magical scenes. Once again they have delivered another fantastic wonderland for our customers to enjoy.”
Cllr Maureen Creaghan, Deputy Mayor of Warrington joined Bents for the occasion. She helped with the opening. Daniel Jillings from Bents’ Charity of the Year, Once Upon a Smile drew the raffle.
Bents 2019 centrepiece, Make it Magical, is a stunning combination of blush pink, silver and white decorations. It’s one of many designed show-stoppers. They’re full of inspiration and ready to be re-created at home.
Now that Christmas at Bents is open there is a full calendar of festive events planned at the Centre. This starts with Father Christmas’ Arrival on Saturday 9th November at 10am.
