Head to Highcross Leicester for Festive Fun
This Christmas, Highcross is the place to be to make festive dreams come true for all the family. With new stores including Zara and Jo Malone, a German Jägerhaus, and even the big man himself, Santa has taken residence – Highcross has everything you need.
Alongside new openings are a number of special pop-ups including The White Company and Cath Kidston. The centre has become the dream destination for finding amazing presents – including the Highcross Gift Card, which opens up everything on offer; from shopping to dining, and even rock climbing at the newly opened Social Climbing. The gift card is available in denominations from £5 to £500, and the recipient can use it as their very own centre debit card.
Take a break from hectic Christmas shopping at one of the centre’s 35 restaurants and cafes. ‘Tis the season to treat yourself; so, tuck into sushi at Yo! Sushi or indulge a sweet tooth at Millie’s Cookies. December also sees the opening of hotly anticipated MOD Pizza, a great location to dine with all the family once the festive holidays start.
In addition to the shopping and dining offering, visitors to Highcross will be able to meet Santa himself as he settles into Highcross’ winter garden from now all the way up to Christmas. He has a gift for every little shopper, so be sure to book a slot to visit him at his log cabin located on the lower mall outside Debenhams.
For those looking to indulge this Christmas, it doesn’t get better than a warming glass of hot toffee apple cider – which you’ll be able to enjoy at the festive bar located in St Peter’s Square throughout the Christmas period. The Jägerhaus is a German themed bar set up in the heart of St Peter’s Square for the first time. Don’t forget to take a look at the breath-taking Christmas decorations, including a sparkling reindeer perfect for selfies!
Film fans are also in for a treat this Christmas as Leicester’s premier Cinema de Lux, will be showcasing all the box office hits across its twelve screens. Highlights this festive period include Surviving Christmas with the Relatives opening 30th November, and Mary Poppins Returns, hitting screens on 19th December.
Highcross is open throughout December, closing its doors only for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Shoppers can also enjoy later opening hours, with trading hours extended as late as 10pm.
Highcross’ general manager Jo Tallack said, ‘We are over the moon to be hosting such a wide array of festive events over this year’s Christmas period. We truly have something for all the family at Highcross.’
