Santa Claus is coming to Braehead

The Christmas classics are playing, the festive jumpers are on, and millions of lights fill the streets. There’s no getting away from it - Christmas is upon us! And what a start to the season it has been for Field and Lawn.

Braehead Xmas Install

December saw our biggest client of the year make a flying visit to the City of Glasgow, and the occasion needed to go off without a hitch. 

Thankfully he’s not too much of a diva, only requiring the odd mince pie and carrot for his reindeer. And his stint at Braehead Shopping Centre proved to be a day full of magic and wonder, for young and old alike.

With Mrs Claus on hand to escort visitors around a variety of activities, including a ride on Santa’s sleigh as well as stalls for making reindeer food and Christmas decorations, the Claus clan ensured everyone was catered to. With each visit culminating in a meet and greet session with the man himself, kids and parents all left with smiles on their faces.

As part of his visit, Santa’s little helpers were on the search for something more watertight than their usual space this year, and put in a call to the team at Field and Lawn Scotland to create the perfect festive workshop away from home. 

With 642 sqm of covered space, and structures ranging from 3m to 12m widths, we ensured Kris Kringle, his crew and guests were kept cosy throughout.  The build operation lasted just two days, with the total project build to transform the Braehead boardwalk into a winter wonderland spanning just over one week. What a fantastic start to the festive season!
