Tesco Ireland has announced plans to host a series of customer evenings in Laois in the run up to Christmas.

On Thursday 1st December, customers in the county have the opportunity to pop into Tesco Extra Portlaoise between 6pm-8.30pm to sample some seasonal delights as well as get some top tips and tricks for hosting this Christmas season.

Customers will be treated to tasters of the top festive favourite treats from the finest range including Bronze Turkey and Irish Ham with Mulling Spices to the delectable Safari chocolates and the renowned Rich Fruit Cake and deep filled Mince Pies.

Customers who attend on the night will also have the opportunity to enter into a competition to win a family trip to Lapland which includes a magical husky-sleigh ride, winter fun games and a visit to Santa Claus’ post office and village where all letters sent to Santa from all over the world arrive.

To be in with a chance of winning a family ticket for four customers simply attend on the evening, take a photo with one of the Tesco Christmas hosts and share across Tesco Ireland’s facebook page or Twitter (@TescoIrl) using the #ToTheHosts tag. Photos from all the events taking place will be collated and entered into a draw which will take place on Wednesday 14th December, with the trip to meet Santa Claus himself taking place on Saturday 17th December.

Hosting Christmas Dinner is no small task between keeping turkey moist, roast potatoes crispy and entertaining hungry revellers.

It’s the hosts who truly make Christmas so special, so this festive season, Tesco Ireland is handing over media space to the public to allow them to share their appreciation of their hosts. Customers can nominate their hosts to feature in the ongoing advertising campaign by visiting Tesco.ie/tothehosts.

From mid-November to December 21st, Tesco stores will also have a dedicated Host Post box with thank you cards so that customers can post cards directly to their hosts.
