Gannow Christmas Party

Christmas is coming!

Get yourself ready for Christmas with this year’s Gannow Christmas Party. On Saturday 24th November the Gannow Christmas Party kicks off at 12pm and the fun doesn’t stop until 2pm!

BPRCVS are hosting our annual Gannow Christmas Party at Gannow Community Centre, Adamson Street, Burnley, BB12 6RB. Everybody is welcome to come along and join in the fun, why not when it’s free entry!



This year’s Christmas Party has a wide variety of things going on through the day and is jam packed with festive fun for the whole family.

Bring your kids to come and meet Father and Mother Christmas and their elves in Santa’s Grotto, let your kids tell Santa what they would like for Christmas this year and they will receive an early Christmas present. And that’s not all we have this year! Let your children go berserk in the chocolate Santa hunt. There will be lots of chocolate Santa’s hidden around Gannow Community Centre all you have to do is find as many chocolate Santa’s as you can in this finders keepers game which was a hugely popular attraction last year!        

We are bringing back the massively popular Spot the Christmas Cracker competition and this year we are introducing a load of new festive competitions so come along and join in. We’ve got a guess the weight of the Christmas cake competition and if you guess the right weight you can win the beautifully tasting homemade Christmas cake. We also have several other competitions that you can get involved with, such as guess the name of the teddy and how many sweets are in the jar. All competitions are free entry and you have a chance to win some amazing prizes.

Take part in the Christmas tombola. There’ll be hundreds of prizes to be won! These have been provided to us by local and national high street businesses.

Learn how to make Christmas decorations. We have craft workshops for adults and children to make beautiful Christmas decorations that you can put up in your home this Christmas.   

This year we also have The Book People joining us at the Gannow Christmas Party. The Book People will be selling all different kind of books that you can either buy for yourself or buy for somebody else!

We have Face painters this year so make sure you bring your kids along to get their face painted into their favourite characters or favourite animal at the Christmas Party.  

While you get stuck in to all the activities that we have on offer enjoy some tasty snacks and refreshments in the Gannow Café.

This year’s Gannow Christmas Party is the best event this year! So make sure you don’t miss out!! Everything is free and it’s fun for all the family. So come along and get a jump start on Christmas with this amazing Christmas Party.

We hope to see you there for a community Christmas celebration.
