Xmas Late Night Shopping Event - Friday Dec 2nd Planning Underway

Xmas Late Night Shopping Event 2016 – Friday Dec 2nd Planning Well Underway

The Cheam Chamber of Trade’s Late Night Shopping Event attracts over 3,000 visitors to the Village every year. pirateThe Event is held on the evening of the first Friday of December and falls this year on the 2nd of December 2016.

This year’s theme is Pirates  and will feature Adult Actors from SAVVY Theatre Company performing a A Mini Pirate Panto culminating in switching on the Christmas tree lights at the Cheam War Memorial Green outside Cheam Library. The evening will include various sub events at  Cheam Library, Cheam Baptist Church and at shops and venues In the Village. Radio Jackie will provide music and entertainment on the night and there will be up to 30 stalls with crafts, toys, jewellery, wood products and various food and drink on offer. Fairground rides and children’s activities will also be in place. Radio Jackie’s Mobile unit Van will add to the Entertainment.

The event costs several thousand pounds to produce, even though all the work is put in by volunteers and traders and so we are looking for an increased level and number of sponsors. This is an opportunity for the businesses in Cheam to enhance their branding and presence and to contribute to the welfare of the local community.
