The countdown to Christmas is on as Victoria Square kick starts the festive season with a bang on Wednesday 13th November both with its Spectacular Christmas Lights Switch On from 4pm and the premier of its joyful Christmas TV ad for 2013.
Travel on a sleigh-ride with six year old Sammie from Bangor in the ad, reveling in the snow as the iconic dome of Northern Ireland’s premier retail, residential and leisure complex is transformed into a magical winter wonderland, complete with snow and a real life reindeer! Watch a sneak peak of the TV ad before it goes live on Wednesday 13th November:
Fashionably styled by Personal Stylist Rebecca McKinney and filmed by Northern Irish company Street Monkey with the aide of a remote controlled helicam, the Victoria Square ad is set to get you into the festive spirit and of course inspire your Christmas shopping; offering a vast array of choice for the perfect gift, all under one roof!
Art director John Leslie, along with his team of little helpers, spent over a week building the set in the Linen Mill Studio in Banbridge where acclaimed series the Game of Thrones is filmed. The set was brought to life using 20 spruce trees, 15 birch trees (from John’s own farm), 28 bags of snow, two snow guns and a life sized log cabin – making sure it’s a white Christmas at Victoria Square, whatever the weather.
