Christmas Lights Event – 22nd November 2014

The Exchange is Nottingham's oldest shopping arcade, with its magnificent Grade II* listed buildings a spectacular sight at any time of year. This is doubly true at Christmas, when the centre is justifiably renowned for its beautiful Christmas decorations which look truly splendid in the centre's rich Edwardian setting. The décor will look even more spectacular this year, following the refurbishment in the summer of the arcade's stone floor, with the mellow York Stone providing an ideal contrast to the green and purple of centre's scheme.


The decorations go up on Saturday 22nd November, which is also the day of our popular Christmas Lights Event.

Visit the centre from 11.00am on the day and, as well as being amongst the first to see the decorations, you'll also be able to enjoy a live entertainment and music including:

Amazing close-up Street Magic from the wizardly Roy Bond, who promises some jaw-dropping tricks and amazing sleight of hand. There'll be a feast of festive music to really get you in the Christmas spirit and children will particularly enjoy the wonderful balloon creations & face painting. There'll also be giveaways and sweet treats - so be sure to arrive early!

What's more, when you purchase anything from any of The Exchange's stores you can also enter our fabulous prize draw to win one of 5 prizes of £200 each in Exchange Shopping Vouchers! Redeemable in all the centre's stores, they're the perfect thing for Christmas shopping, to give as a gift or even for a little self-indulgence.

The Christmas Lights Event runs all day from 11.00am on Saturday 22nd November.
