Clarks Village gifts Bristol Airport flight special performance of The Nutcracker

Nearly 200 passengers landing at Bristol Airport this week were given an early Christmas present thanks to Clarks Village – the first ever outlet shopping centre in the UK.

As passengers waited to collect their luggage, they were surprised by characters from The Nutcracker ballet who came to life and presented the passengers with special gift boxes. The delighted passengers were thrilled to find inside each box a range of Clarks Village gift cards, TUI holiday vouchers and gift cards for specific stores at Clarks Village including Musto, Ben Sherman, Clarks, Ernest Jones, Raging Bull, Next & Asics.

Chris Davis, centre manager for Clarks Village comments, “Every year we welcome visitors travelling into the south west and we wanted to share some early seasonal spirit. Clarks Village celebrated its 25th birthday this year and as well as the range of free events that we host throughout the year we wanted to create an early Christmas experience with a surprise and delight act of gift giving kindness. Thanks to the support of TUI, Bristol Airport, and the fantastic team at Eye Airports who have collaborated on this idea from start to finish and enabled it to happen.”

The Nutcracker characters were posed at baggage reclaim and gave a pop-up performance to Tchaikovsky’s iconic music.
