While we’ve never been to a Christmas market at a football stadium, an opportunity to do just that has just presented itself. Well, Hamilton Stadium invites everyone to get into the spirit of things at a magical Winter Village, located at the event space at Hamilton Accies FC Football Stadium.
From Tuesday, December 12, 2023, to Sunday, January 7, 2024, the Hamilton Accies Winter Village is transforming into a festive hub of joy, laughter, and all of our favourite holiday traditions. Overall, the Winter Village will see eco-friendly ice skating, Santa’s Grotto, local businesses and the usual festive goodness. The festive event will boast free entry, with an extra charge for those wishing to participate in the ice skating or Santa’s Grotto.
The sustainable skating experience, Glide On Glice, boasts an “eco-friendly rink made with innovative waterless, zero-energy Swiss technology”. Designed for date nights, family outings, or even a dance-off at one of our Dance On Glice discos with live DJs, the rink offers 45-minute skating sessions for ages three and older.
For the little (and big) ones wishing to pay Santa a wee visit, Santa’s Grotto will be open until December 24, from 10 am to 6 pm. What is more, locals and visitors alike can support small businesses at the Christmas market, by purchasing unique gifts from local artisans and suppliers. So, you can find that perfect, thoughtful gift while backing local craftsmanship and trade!
