Silverburn is bursting at the seams with festive fun

Leading retail and leisure destination Silverburn has announced a full line-up of festive fun for visitors to enjoy while completing their Christmas shopping this year. The celebrations have already kicked off, with viral sensation buskers Simon Sims and Gary Lynas taking to Silverburn’s very own ‘Busk Stop’ to raise the spirits of passers-by with a good singsong. This is only the beginning of the impressive roster of performers who will be busking within Silverburn throughout the festive period. A proportion of the buskers' earnings throughout the month of November will kindly be donated by performers to Silverburn Cares - Silverburn’s community fund. Entertainment continues into December with roaming performers, including reindeer and Jack Frost and his Snow Fairies, joining the ranks of traditional brass bands and choirs.
