ASDA will be the 2017 GOLD Sponsor at Weymouth’s BIG Xmas.
ASDA have taken the Gold sponsorship package for Weymouth’s BIG Christmas. This is the first time that a national chain has stepped forward to sponsor a local event in Weymouth.
WPCC members also sponsoring so far include Sherrens Printers, Weyprint, Resort Magazine and Oakes Insure all shown in our main photo.
Darren Rideout, Store Manager at Asda Weymouth “We are very happy to support the Weymouth’s BIG Christmas, this year promises to be bigger and better than ever offering lots of things to do and encouraging people to spend more time in Weymouth enjoying the real ice rink and the entertainment which has been arranged for 1st December when the Christmas Tree and Christmas lights will be switched on. I know my colleagues in store are really looking forward to it and will be bringing the ASDA Christmas Cabin to the heart of Weymouth town centre on 9th and 10th December”.
The Silver Sponsorship opportunity is still available plus 4 Bronze sponsors who can take advantage of advertising around the ice rink and radio advertising with Wessex FM. One of the Bronze sponsors, Paul Hay of Fish n Fritz said “Each year the Big Christmas celebration in Weymouth just gets bigger and better, we have really noticed an upturn in business each December since it has started and we are really excited to be involved with it this year”.
Many businesses are supporting the event by taking Bronze sponsorship and any businesses who are interested in one of the remaining packages should contact the BID office as soon as possible as sponsorship booking closes on 20th November to allow time for business logos to go on all marketing materials.

Steve Newstead Weymouth BID Chair said “We have taken a lot of time and effort this Christmas to make sure that businesses have the opportunity to be involved. Sponsorship is an important part to delivering a successful event but there are also lots of other ways that businesses can still join in by creating competition prizes, and using the BID to promote special Christmas offers or promoting events on the WeAreWeymouth.co.uk website. “
The BIG Christmas Ice Rink will open on Thursday 30th November when it will be opened by the Mayor of Weymouth & Portland for VIP skating sessions for sponsors and guests. Special £5 Friday tickets will be available for everyone on Friday 1st December after which bookings will be open for all ice rink tickets at £7.50 for a 45 minute ice skating session which includes skate hire. Book at www.weareweymouth.co.uk/christmas. New for 2017 will be “More space to Skate” sessions for families with younger children, Silent Disco evenings and also competitions with Dorset Echo and Wessex FM to win skating tickets.
