November 13, 2013 4:41 pm

With a little over six weeks until Christmas, Altrincham’s Christmas Programme is swinging into action with the launch of the Altrincham Forward Christmas website –

Altrincham at Christmas is even more exciting this year with the launch a fantastic new Great British Christmas Market on Sunday’s and the popular Thursday Twilight markets are back!

Altrincham Town Centre Manager, Paul Armstrong said: “There’s a jam packed programme of events and shopping experiences taking place in Altrincham this year meaning local people don’t have to go far to find those unique gifts or to simply absorb some festive cheer.  With late night shopping on Thursday’s throughout December in the Stamford Quarter until 8pm and the market a hive of festive entertainment and treats from 14th November, there’s no other place to visit – Altrincham truly has a unique offer.”

Paul paid a visit this week, along with the Mayor of Trafford Cllr Dylan Butt, to the Village Toy Company on Stamford New Road – Altrincham’s magical independent toy shop, which has been trading in Altrincham for nearly a year.

Owner of the Village Toy Company and Altrincham resident, Lisa McCarthy, said: “This will be our first full Christmas period in business and will be by far the busiest time of year for us. We have worked hard to establish ourselves as a destination toy shop over the past year and, as an independent retailer, give customers something a little bit different. On Saturday 30 November we will be celebrating our first birthday by offering a 10% discount to shoppers.”

The website is a ‘one-stop-shop’ of information and listings showcasing what Altrincham has to offer this Christmas – with new events and offers being added all the time. Visit or follow @altrinchamFWD on Twitter.
