ABOUT THE CROWD FUNDER PROJECT - BIG Christmas Weekends! Christmas needs to be extra special this year.
Enjoy the gift of giving to the community in 2016 - we need your help to shine a brighter festive light on Plymouth's stunning Waterfront!
We hope to create a magical experience for local residents and visitors alike, involving Christmas lights, reindeer, real snow, Santa arriving on the RNLI Lifeboat, Elfie Selfies, huge Christmas trees and a recreation of A Christmas Carol - yes, Scrooge will take you on a tour through his Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future!
We're working across multiple areas including the Royal William Yard, The Barbican, The Hoe and Sutton Harbour. Whilst we can afford to do a few activities, our community is keen to do more - we need more help.
This Christmas we're also launching a new 'Snowflake Trail' for families to enjoy a day out in Plymouth's amazing Waterfront, linking different areas through a family walking route. Children can find the Snowflake names and be in with a chance of winning fabulous prizes donated by local businesses.
We have some money to create all of this, but we need a little more help to make this an extra special treat. Help us to create an amazing and unforgettable experience for families all across the city.
Our aspirations don't end there. We're keen to provide genuine learning opportunities for our young people. We're working with students from City College Plymouth to give them work experiences - their Carpentry students are doing a fabulous job to create a lovely log cabin for the Elfie Selfies where you can create your own Christmas card portraits amidst real snow.
We're also working with students from the Plymouth College of Art using cutting edge laser technology to build four feet high Snowflake sculptures to help us create a new Snowflake Trail with prizes on offer for families taking part. We've already secured significant partners for the project - we're working with Urban Splash at the Royal William Yard, Sutton Harbour Holdings at Sutton Harbour and Plymouth City Council in the Barbican. We're working with artists and performers from the Barbican Theatre and we're looking to provide opportunities for residents to come out and enjoy Christmas parties in their streets.
Everyone's contributing, giving something to help, the community is pulling together. But we need a little extra help to make sure all of these plans can go ahead and really dazzle this year. Please help us - pledge something toward the campaign and we'll give something back to you as a thank you. Come on down and join us too - enjoy our BIG Christmas Waterfront Weekend events on either:
19th and 20th November, BIG Christmas Weekend, The Barbican and Sutton Harbour 24th November, Illuminate Thanksgiving, The Barbican and Sutton Harbour 4th December, The Winter Wonderland, Royal William Yard We think Plymouth's Waterfront is amazing! There's nowhere else like it, with its history and heritage, marine education and pristine marine environment.
We want to celebrate the Waterfront this festive season. Help us to celebrate with some extra sparkle, please make a pledge today. Thank you very much. Plymouth Waterfront Partnership http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/big-christmas-weekends
