Come and experience all that Princesshay has to offer with late night shopping and entertainment for the whole family this Christmas and New Year.  You will be assured of a great welcome and be amazed by great street entertainment for all the family where sparks will certainly fly!

From Saturday 16 November be transported to a twinkly paradise when we unveil our brand-new Christmas lights installation. It’s bigger and brighter than ever! Plus, what’s Christmas without a tree? Princesshay’s giant tree is back and this year is decorated with more than 340 individual decorations.
