Once again the 4 Heatons Traders Association have organised a family festive extravaganza for the community to enjoy. The Christmas Festival takes place on Saturday 26th November from 3pm until 8pm on Shaw Road in Heaton Moor with Santa arriving at 4pm.

There will be plenty to see and do for the whole family including Santa’s grotto, crafts for the children, a mini fairground and face painting. There will be a stage with a full line up of acts including theatre groups, singers and the Heatons’ very own Square One. ‘Frozen’ stars Elsa and Anna will also be visiting.

For those looking to do some Christmas shopping Heaton Moor Producers Market will be there and local shops will be open for business so don’t forget to bring your bags for life! Local shops are also taking part in a best dressed window competition and hosting a hunt the hedgehog competition so plenty to keep everybody busy. 

Local eateries, Tusk, Backs Deli, Thom’s Bar and the Kushoom Koly will be serving up tasty food and drink too so plenty of opportunity to eat, drink and be merry! 

Four local businesses have kindly sponsored this lovely community event. They are Heaton Moor based solicitors Clifford Johnston & Co, John Mellor Estate Agents, Tusk Heaton Moor and our new dental practice Heaton Moor Dental. 

Local solicitor and 4 Heatons Traders Association Chairman, Shane Flannery commented “The 4 Heatons Traders Association has had a fantastic year: we put on our biggest ever Summer Festival in June, we launched our new website fourheatons.co.uk, persuaded Stockport MBC to spend £200,000 on street improvements in the Heatons and then won the special recognition award at this year’s Stockport Business Awards, so the Christmas Festival is a great way to close a brilliant year! We’re incorporating some indoor activities this year as we know the weather can be a little unpredictable so we hope that will encourage families to come along, even if the sun isn’t shining. The Heatons business community works really hard to ensure that the Heatons is a great place to live, work and prosper.”
