The list of goodies includes dinner for two with wine at The Bank Restaurant, a £50 voucher for The Entertainer, £25 to spend at Topman/Topshop, a family Cinema experience at The Light, £100 to spend on kids wear at Debenhams, a £30 voucher for Kids Fashion Mart, an almond milk and honey gift box from The Body Shop, play experiences and adventure golf at Amazonia, Carrs Pasties vouchers, a meal for four at Nando’s, lunch for two at Patio 44, a £20 voucher for Pepe’s, Pink Prosecco at The Cave, a Prosecco and Ale gift set from Great Ale, a Starbucks gift set and lots, lots more.

Market Place’s shops will be open from 10am 5pm on the day, with The Light cinema and The Vaults open until later, and every half an hour, throughout the day, there will be spot giveaways.

And the centre will be giving away a £500 shopping spree for one lucky winner on New Year’s Day.

All you have to do is like Market Place Bolton on Facebook and ‘check in’ at the centre for a chance to win. The lucky winner will be chosen at random and contacted the next day
