Join in the festive fun this
Christmas in Leicester
The festive season is a magical time in Leicester – lights twinkle across the city, shoppers hurry around for gifts and there’s seasonal cheer in the air as family and friends gather to celebrate.
Visitors and residents alike delight in the lights switch-on triggering the official start of Christmas in Leicester with this year’s ‘white Christmas’ themed snow covered tree. And seasonal attractions and entertainment such as Christmas Wheel of Light, Santa in the Square, De Montfort Hall pantomime Peter Pan, Curve’s production of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas and Treasure Island at Haymarket Theatre offer family fun throughout the holiday time.
And what better way to feel the holiday spirit no matter what the weather than visiting the Jubilee Square Ice Rink housed in a covered marquee with clear roof. The rink is real ice and twice the size this year, perfect for groups as well as Christmas parties. Come skate or spectate – either way you’re bound to get in the Christmas spirit!
