As part of our work with The Mall at Cribbs Causeway, we spent the day with Union J at the big Christmas light switch on in Bristol…

What do you get one big boyband, 10,000 fans and the biggest ice rink in the South West? That’s exactly what we were there to find out last week as we continued our work with The Mall, working on PR and social media for their massive Christmas light switch on event.

The event aimed to raise more than £20,000 for The Grand Appeal, which helps patients and families at Bristol Children’s Hospital.

Journalists from Points West, Heart FM, The Post, Made in Bristol TV and many other local titles came along to cover the action. Twitter and Instagram went into meltdown as fans rushed to share photos and videos of their idols.

The event marked the start of Christmas at The Mall, which houses a 1000 sq. metre ice rink, nursery rink and Santa’s enchanted ice castle as part of it’s huge Winter Wonderland attraction, which is open until 11th January.

Check out the video below to find out what happened….

We had a whale of a time working on this project – early stats suggest this could be a very merry Christmas indeed in terms of social media mentions for the attraction, all of which give us a warm, fuzzy festive feeling! We can also confirm that Union J are possibly the nicest chaps in pop right now – every bit as polite and well-mannered as they seem on TV. (Our fave was Jaymi but sssh… don’t tell anyone!)
