Winter Wonderland


15 November–31 December 2018
Old Market Square and Long Row

Christmas lights switch on: Thursday 15 November

From 15 November until 31 December, Old Market Square will once again transform into Nottingham’s very own Winter Wonderland.

While away the hours browsing over 70 traditional, Bavarian-style stalls, searching for the perfect gift among handmade jewellery, woolly winter wear and wooden crafts as well as sampling the delicious homemade and artisan cheeses, chutneys and chocolates on offer.

Kids can enjoy the traditional rides and helter-skelter, and the whole family can show off their skating skills on the real, 750m² ice rink.

After all that, chill out with a drink (or two) in some pretty cool surroundings—the UK’s biggest mobile ice bar. 2018 also sees the return of last year’s hugely successful ski lodge-style bar, Sur La Piste, which will see live entertainment and some exciting new additions this year... watch this space for more info!
