Middlesbrough’s Dundas Shopping Centre for Christmas, re-starting a thirty year old tradition. Traidcraft has opened every year during the festive period since 1985 in different retail units in Middlesbrough town centre. It is a Fairtrade business which trades with a bias to the poor and enables producers to receive a proper return for their skill and hard work.
Little ones can post their letter to Father Christmas in a special interactive Santa’s Post Box and watch their letter be whisked off to Santa’s home of Lapland. Santa’s Post Box is on the main shopping mall from 19 November, in good time for the switch-on of the town’s Christmas lights on 22 November and the Magical Middlesbrough Parade on Sunday 2 December.
