Celebrating Christmas with Friends of Gretna

The festive season is looking very different for us all, but throughout December, Gretna Gateway are bringing the Christmas spirit and introducing their Friends of Gretna Christmas Cabins.

Sitting alongside the Centre’s 50 high street names and designer favourites, the four Christmas Cabins will be a space to showcase and support local, small businesses, so you can pick up a unique and locally crafted gift, find that perfect extra stocking filler, or just treat yourself!

Open Friday – Mondays throughout December at Gretna Gateway, Friends of Gretna will feature everything from real Christmas trees and hand-crafted jewellery, to cosy candles and unique sweet treats.

Gretna Gateway continues to follow social distancing guidance, and whilst you plan your festive visit, you can find the best times to shop, with extended opening hours for many stores from Friday 4th – Monday 7th December and late night shopping every Wednesday in December, open late until 9pm.

Santa and his Head Elf are also bringing some Christmas cheer to Gretna, with Gretna Gateway’s socially distanced Santa’s Grotto open 4pm – 8pm every Wednesday evening, and 10am – 5:30pm every weekend. You can even take your furry friend along to see Santa in Gretna Gateway’s Santa Paws event on Friday 18th December. A percentage of proceeds from the grotto will go directly back to local children’s and animal charities.
