Christmas 2021 to be the biggest festive period EVER!
2020 was, to say the least, a nightmare.
When the country first went to lockdown in March 20 no one suspected that it would lead through to Christmas and beyond.
Everyone in the country had a challenging Christmas in 2020 and so many missed out on their usual festive experiences.
Visits in the home from Christmas performers could not happen, many Santa grottos were forced to close and it all led to a rather disappointing time.
However, there is huge hope for 2021 as things ease back to normal and people in the UK are looking to celebrate Christmas 2021 like never before.
The cloud of fear and expectation that plans may need to being cancelled is certainly lifting and people are already planning earlier than usual to ensure this Christmas is one to remember.
This begs the question, when is too early to start planning and booking Father Christmas for 2021? The simple answer is that it’s never too early.
A ‘normal’ year will see Christmas performers being fully booked by the end of September. However, with most businesses banking on the final quarter of 2021 being fantastically busy there has been a huge surge in businesses and household booking Christmas performers early than usual so they do not miss out.
Why it’s important to plan ahead and book Father Christmas?
