Christmas kicks off at The Avenue

East Ren is set for Christmas following a festive lights switch on — and a visit from Santa himself.

The lights went on at The Avenue with comedian Des Clarke hosting a fun day featuring X Factor singer Emily Middlemas, Scott Fletcher and Joanne McGuinness from the King’s panto Peter Pan, and of course, Santa and his elves making a grand entrance and marking the opening of the festive grotto.

The Newton Mearns centre is still offering shoppers the chance to win tickets to Peter Pan — as well as dinner at Ristorante Teatro and a £100 gift card — by sending in pirate selfies.

To be in with a chance, take a photo of yourself striking your best pirate pose at the stand outside the Phones4U store and email it to by November 30.
