A BARROW store is offering up a unique way to bring festive cheer to the year.

Bumblebee at The Hive, based on Scott Street, are releasing slots for you and up to four of your friends to browse their Christmas wares in the lead up to the big day.

Slots for private use of the store will be available from October 18.

The slots will take place on Thursday and Sunday evenings.

Taking to social media, a spokesperson for the store said: "We still want to keep the magic in Christmas, let's decorate and light up our homes.

"We will of course be flexible and accommodate our customers needs.

"As always, thank you for supporting us and other businesses by shopping local."
