Christmas Lights at The Exchange

The Christmas Lights Event at The Exchange on Saturday 30th November was an overwhelming success, with over 12,000 people visiting the centre throughout the day.

Visitors saw the switch-on of the centre's Christmas lights and were entertained by incredible close-up street magic from the wizardly Roy Bond, live festive music from the renowned Thoresby Colliery Band, giveaways and sweet treats. Customers were also able to enter a free draw to win £1,000 in Exchange Shopping Vouchers.

The Exchange has been especially popular with visitors over Christmas since it opened more than 90 years ago, with the wonderful architecture of the building the ideal backdrop for the centre's seasonal decorations, which have become a noted Nottingham attraction.

Neil Fincham, The Exchange Centre Manager commented, "Whilst The Lights Event is ultimately designed to attract people to the centre to shop, the added value elements of live entertainment and music contribute significantly to its overall appeal and success.

"Competition in retail is intense at any time," he continued, "arguably even more so these days with increasing options for shoppers both online and on the High Street. Keeping shoppers engaged with the centre is something we can never be complacent about, so it was especially pleasing to see attendance this year so high once again."

The centre's fully interactive digital Christmas Gift Guide is also now online, with all products featured clickable, meaning readers can buy online directly from the guide and pick up their purchases when they next visit the centre via Click & Collect. Click here to shop the guide now.
