Original Shrewsbury launches anticipated Christmas video ‘All You Need for Christmas’

The wait is over. Today Shrewsbury Business Improvement District (BID) launches its annual Christmas production on You Tube, which shows heart-warming footage of Christmas in Shrewsbury.

Opening to a moving adaptation of ‘Silent Night’, the 90 second video tells the familiar story of a mum, played by Olga Lewis, preparing for Christmas. As the video unfolds, we see Shrewsbury’s magical offer at its best, with seasonal shopping, mistletoe moments, present giving and festive celebrations with family and friends.

Kirsten Henly, Shrewsbury BID Executive Director, said: “With this year’s video we wanted to capture the magical essence of Christmas that is so synonymous with Shrewsbury. It’s a busy time for shopping, eating out and events and we hope this video encourages everyone to come into town and experience seasonal Shrewsbury for themselves.

“All of the scenes were filmed with local actors and extras, with support from town centre businesses. We would like to thank everyone who got involved, including our Christmas competition winner Claire Bryers who inspired the spirit of the film with her winning poem from our recent Christmas competition."

Shrewsbury BID partnered with Shropshire based SMN Film for its Christmas production. It was produced and directed by Tom Middleton and Miche Parkinson of SMN Film.
