When it comes to festive events, Leicester’s got all you want for Christmas. From the Jubilee Square Ice Rink and Santa in the Square to Christmas shows in our theatres – there’s something for everyone.
Leicester’s Wheel of Light returns to Jubilee Square, offering birds-eye views of the twirling skaters on the ice rink and beyond, plus strike a pose at LightWeight on New Market Square, a giant inflatable sphere lit up with shimmering colours and live animation.
The annual Open art exhibition at New Walk Museum & Art Gallery provides a showcase for artistic talent from the East Midlands. With works of art for sale, this is a great opportunity to start your own art collection or purchase a one-off Christmas gift for the art lover in your life.
The medieval Guildhall provides a special festive atmosphere with Christmas shows and carols with Kingfisher Chorale, Christmas Through the Ages and Don’t Go into the Cellar presenting Another Xmas Carol.
Enjoy some Christmas crackers at The Phoenix Cinema with a fabulous festive programme bringing seasonal classics back to the big screen with something for the whole family.
A warm welcome awaits at Leicester Cathedral, with traditional services including three carol services, Christmas Eve midnight mass and a service on Christmas Day.
