Christmas in Solihull is one you can really believe in.

The festive fun begins with our all new sparkling Christmas Market where you will find inspiration for those stocking fillers whilst enjoying a mulled wine, beer and delicious street food. The market opens on the 23rd November and closes on the 6th December to make way for our programme of seasonal entertainment across the town centre.
Mell Square is a perfect hub to take a seat, relax and let the young ones enjoy our Saturday entertainment. Their charity gift wrap service can help with those sticky wrapping issues located in Poplar way. Watch out for our mischievous elves, storytelling tent and even a fascinating Victorian magician. The Dickensian carol singers will set the tone whilst you take some pics in our stunning sleigh, you might even spot our giant scrooge wandering the streets.
Touchwood have an even more sparkly grotto where Santa awaits, and the bear family are back too.
Finally, it’s your chance to follow the 3 wise men on camels, visit the centre on Saturday 2nd December and Saturday 9th December when you will even have an opportunity to meet the camels up close too!
Top this off with a photograph in the shiny red sleigh and let Solihull make this Christmas, a Christmas to remember.
