Shambles Area Traders' Association would like to make the Shambles look and feel extra special this Christmas. We propose buying a number of artificial snow machines that will be positioned as high as possible, creating the atmosphere of a wintery snowy street. With the narrow width of Shambles, this should be fairly simple to replicate an create a unique scene. To encourage late night Thursday shopping, we are proposing to use the machines between 4-8pm every Thursday from November 16th 2017.

What we'll deliver:

  • A wintery atmosphere
  • An opening event, street party
  • Performances & music

Why it's a great idea:

York does not really do late night shopping, we hope this will help boost the many independent businesses that operate in and around the Shambles with a boosted footfall and hopefully spend.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying the equipment
  • The big Switch On!
