Town and Bridge gear up for Christmas shopping

Thursday 01 December 2022

Late night shopping returns this evening coinciding with the first day of December – with numerous local shops staying open until 21:00 each Thursday up until Christmas.

Entertainment will also be available across St. Peter Port including buskers and a market in Market Square selling hot drinks, roasted nuts, and sweet treats.

15 small local businesses have pitches offering homemade gifts and other items, as well as charity stalls.

Musicians will be performing on the High Street, in the Pollet and in Market Square.

Extra buses have been put on specially by CT Plus, with its usual night bus services leaving the Terminus at 21:30 each Thursday.

Le Petit Train is also providing a free park and ride service between Sir Charles Frossard House and Picquet House on December 15 and 22 throughout the evening. 

Parking rules across the piers and North Beach will be suspended and extra spaces are available on the White Rock and St. Julian’s Emplacement.

Korinne Le Page, Head of Retail Development at the Guernsey Retail Group, said the event has become a firm favourite in the yearly calendar for all to enjoy. 

There are some fabulous businesses here and the extended opening hours means Islanders can shop locally and support our local traders and hospitality venues,” she said.

We are fortunate to enjoy a wonderful community spirit in Guernsey so hope the extended hours, entertainment, stalls, and excitement leading up to Christmas all add to the festive atmosphere.

To add to the festive fun, a number of our Town retailers will be offering discounts and running promotions for the evenings in particular and others throughout December.

Late night shopping on the Bridge starts next week, on Tuesdays. Father Christmas will be there to turn the lights on this Friday, after the schools have finished for the week.
