More About Grand Arcade Christmas:

From now until Sunday 27th December, Grand Arcade Christmas will play non-stop festive favourites and tips on getting ready for the big day.

Centre manager Paul Bentham says, “We’re looking forward to welcoming shoppers back to Grand Arcade again in December.

“In the meantime we’ve created the perfect soundtrack to get people feeling festive in their homes with our friends at Star Radio.”

Star Radio’s Managing Director Freddie Scherer says, “After a year like 2020 we need Christmas music more than ever!

"Listeners can count on us for loads of seasonal spirit to help spread joy, hope and love across the city in the run-up to the big day.

"We’ll have fun contests, a few new surprises, and of course, lots of wonderful Christmas music.

”We know that people in Cambridge are now ready earlier than ever to get into the seasonal spirit… so we’re thrilled to be working with the team at Grand Arcade to bring the city’s first dedicated Christmas station to reality.”
