Join us at Deepdale on Sunday 26th November for our first ever Whites Wonderland event!
With the Christmas period just around the corner, we’ll be hosting a special day at Preston North End – in tandem with North End events – for people of all ages to come and enjoy.
You can expect festive food and drink stalls, family entertainment, player appearances, and The Gentry Bar will also be open. Manager Ryan Lowe will also be there to kickstart the build-up to Christmas with a lights switch-on.
Starting at 2pm and closing at 7pm, all supporters and those in the local area are invited to welcome the festive season with us at Deepdale!
Food, Drink and Entertainment
As with any Christmas markets, there'll be no shortage of food and drink on offer, with The Flying Pig Pizza Company, The Hot Potato Tram, Rivington Brewing and Spirit of Garstang among those joining us!
There will also be plenty of chance for you to stock up on your Christmas presents with a number of stalls in attendance, including Happy Box UK, Red Rose Darts, Wick Craft Wax and Tropic Beauty. You can find a full list at the bottom of this article.
Concourse kiosks will also be open in the Sir Tom Finney Stand for even more offerings, meanwhile there will be plenty going on in The Gentry Bar.
Tabitha Belle will perform live music, while there will be other entertainment provided later in the day from DLN Dance and PrimeMover SoulStarz.
Santa, from around 4.15pm, will be taking a couple of hours out of his busy schedule ahead of Christmas to pop by at Deepdale to hand out presents to children in attendance! The club would like to pay a huge thank you to principal partner PAR Group who have very generously teamed up with Santa by donating presents.
Manager Ryan Lowe will be at Deepdale on Sunday to officially kickstart the build-up to Christmas with a lights switch-on, expected to take place around 4pm. Please note, this time is subject to change.
There will also be a number of first team players dotted about throughout the day!
There will be chance for supporters to win some impressive prizes on the day through our £1 raffle.
Among the prizes up for grabs are a 2024/25 season card, a signed PNE home shirt, a hospitality package for four guests, and many more!
You can buy a raffle ticket on the day from PNECET members of staff, with cash and card payments accepted, and all winners will be announced at around 6pm. A full list of winners will then be confirmed after the event on the club website and on social media.
Preston North End Community and Education Trust and Rock FM will be in attendance accepting donations for the Mission Christmas toy appeal which supports the most vulnerable families in Preston.
Please consider bringing an unused, unwrapped toy to drop off, which will no doubt make somebody's Christmas.
You can also donate cash to the cause, with all contributions helping to ensure vulnerable people in the local area can wake up to a present this Christmas.
