SPINNAKER Tower is due to get festive and celebrate Christmas in the past, present and future.

The iconic tower in Gunwharf Quays is putting on a Dickensian event.

It will be launching a Christmas Carol-themed celebration from Friday, November 30, to Sunday, December 30.

Called Christmas Past, Present and Future, visitors will be able to experience nostalgia and the fun of previous Christmases with toys from a ‘Christmas past’ on the view decks.

They can also give a ‘present’ of food to a food bank in exchange for an admission discount.

Finally they can write hopes and dreams for 2013 on decorations to adorn a sparkling Christmas ‘future’ tree.

For more information on the tower and its opening times, go to or call (023) 9285 7520.
