Christmas Lights Switch On

Weds 7th December 2022

Pop along to the Piazza to join us in marvelling at the NEW FOR 2022 glittering Christmas lights, indulging in festive treats, singing along to Christmas music and cracking on with your Christmas shopping.

Share your Christmas wishes, send us a short video or text message and we will display them on the Big Screen.

The lights will be on from 5pm, but which renowned campus celebrity will have the honour of pressing the button this year? Well, it could be you! Join us from 4pm to enter the free raffle to turn on the lights.

Christmas Market

Maybe you've already wrapped all of your presents this year, or maybe you haven't started shopping yet (guilty!). Come and check out the Christmas Market for handcrafted and original gifts from independent stand holders, even if it's a Christmas gift to yourself.
