Winter Wonderland

About

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

Official opening and 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 or whizzing down King Street on the brand-new 30ft toboggan slide, 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 at 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. Enjoy the live music and soak up the festive atmosphere in the Square or sample some delicous tapas-style dishes courtesy of the ever-popular Bar Iberico, Nottingham’s Best Restaurant (NRBAs 2018), who'll be taking over the kitchen. Those with an adventurous spirit will love the all new Altitude Bar; the all-glass chalet, perched up high, offering panoramic views of the Christmas crowds below. With cocktails, table service and a private DJ, the space will also be available for party bookings.

Nottingham Winter Wonderland officially opens its doors on Thursday 15 November. There'll be live entertainment from 6.30pm and the city's Christmas lights will be switched on at 7.45pm.
