Coronation Street star kicks off Christmas at the Priory

A much-loved Coronation Street star is set to swap the Cobbles for the Priory to switch on the shopping centre’s Christmas lights on Saturday 25th November.

Steven Arnold, who played popular character Ashley Peacock, will be turning on the Priory Christmas Lights at 4:30pm. The day will be filled with plenty of fun festive activities starting at 3pm where shoppers will have the chance to win a £200 shopping spree around the centre!

The build up to Christmas at the centre has already begun with the opening of the Help for Heroes Christmas store. The shop will be open seven days a week, selling Help for Heroes branded merchandise and clothing, all raising money to help servicemen and women who have been wounded or injured in the line of duty. To celebrate the opening, the Help for Heroes bears will also be at the Christmas light switch on, alongside Steven.
