Christmas 2019 at The Exchange

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, as over the last 30 years the centre has become justifiably renowned for its beautiful decorations which look truly splendid in the arcade's rich Edwardian setting.

The Exchange has been at the heart of Christmas shopping in Nottingham since it opened in 1929, with millions of new and returning customers making it a must-see destination when visiting the city. Last year saw the arrival of a brand-new decoration scheme for the centre, with the magnificent 50ft tree a true focal point positioned beneath The Exchange's stunning 200ft high central dome.

Christmas at The Exchange is also noted for the live music performed in the centre's magnificent arcade, and this year there is a programme of appearances from some of the region's top singing ensembles and choirs:
