Discover the Magic

Christmas at The Quarry Centre

Last year, The Quarry Centre is pulled out all the stops for the festive season and converted the space into a magical Christmas wonderland. With an immersive Santa’s Grotto experience for children of all ages, show-stopping Christmas lights, a night market with live music and kids’ entertainment, late-night shopping, and more, the whole family is invited to discover the magic this December.


Santa was at The Quarry, along with his most trusty Elf, listening to special requests from your little ones, throughout December. But that’s not all, there were special events such as ‘Letters to Santa’, Stocking Making, and Bauble Creating workshops as well as Christmas-themed face painting and so much more to get your youngsters even more excited for the festive season.


To help you get all your Christmas shopping done in one go, the We Heart Hilton Christmas Market was held for the first time at night. Filled with all sorts of lovely local gifts, crafted by incredibly talented local people, the night market is not to be missed.  And, if you didn’t find what you were looking for at the market, all shops at The Quarry Centre were open for late-night shopping too. While you shop, don’t miss the magical display of Christmas lights which will officially be turned on as the sound of live festive music and the smell of mulled wine and roasted nuts fills the air.


A little later in the month, the annual Carols by Candlelight service took place and, if you still needed some last-minute gifts, all shops were open for late-night shopping again too.


The spirit of Christmas is about ‘togetherness’, about supporting one another and showing kindness to your neighbour. This is what The Quarry Centre has been about for the past thirty years.


Nestled in the heart of Hilton, The Quarry Centre has been an integral part of the local community for nearly three decades. Famed for its breathtaking views, and its convenient and family-friendly shopping experience, The Quarry Centre is so much more than just a place to shop.


With everything you need in one place – from two supermarkets, a thriving pharmacy, health shops, book shop, hair and beauty salons, home décor and fashion stores, gift shops, a specialty cake shop, two family-friendly restaurants, coffee bars, banks and ATMs, a fitness studio, biltong barn, gas shop as well as plenty of secure parking, easy access and new, exciting shops coming next year, The Quarry Centre has been here for the community’s needs for thirty years and will continue to be for the next thirty.
