A starry night at Bethlehem
Christmas is all about tradition, and this year Bethlehem Town Centre is aiming to start a new one, with the very first, ‘A Starry Night at Bethlehem’.
A family evening out featuring food, music, fun and an outdoor movie at sunset.
Circus in a Flash will be providing entertainment with roving performers and Christmas-themed instructors for a Have A Go workshop.
There will be children’s entertainment and games with ‘Follow Your Dream Entertainment’ and live music featuring a range of local artists.
Night Owl Cinema will be providing the night’s main event, with the classic Will Ferrell movie Elf on the outdoor big screen.
The movie will begin at sunset – just after 8.30pm – with sweet treats available throughout, including candyfloss, real fruit ice creams and popcorn.
Bethlehem’s marketing manager Dan Weck says the aim is to provide more to do for families and the surrounding Bethlehem community with regular events at Bethlehem Town Centre.
“Bethlehem is a bit different than your traditional ‘mall’, being outdoors, and we want to make the most of that. Especially in the summer months, hence the outdoor movie. So, bring a beanbag, cushion or chair and we’ll take care of the rest.”
Late night shopping will be available, as well as an appearance by Santa for selfies and giveaways. He’ll also be available 5pm-8pm in Santa’s House for photos.
A Starry Night at Bethlehem will be held in Main Street Bethlehem, between Columbus Coffee and Coffee Club, on Saturday, December 19, from 5pm to late. The movie will start at 8.30pm.
