Christmas Lights

Peterborough One Retail Park and Heart are inviting you to enjoy a festive family day out as we continue the countdown to Christmas.

Join us on Saturday 25th November from 4.30pm for an event packed full of entertainment.

Christmas Light Switch On

There are plenty of fun activities happening at Peterborough One Retail Park in the build up to the big switch on.

You can enjoy a magical winter skate to all of your favourite songs on the Van Hage Ice Rink, meet special guests Sid & Scrat from Ice Age or even make a visit to Santa's Grotto to find out if you're on the naughty or nice list!

There will be a FREE Lantern Craft Workshop, where children can personalise their own Christmas lantern and then take part in a Lantern Parade. Stilt-walking Lantern Holders will join them on the journey that leads to this year's 50ft Christmas tree in the heart of the park!

Producer Josh from Heart Breakfast will be hosting the event, where there will be live music and performances from Saldance and the Illuminated Ribbon Dancers. There will also be chance to win shopping vouchers and other exciting prizes.

Make sure you have all of your Christmas shopping done before 7pm, as Sid and Scrat will be turning on the lights set to a festive fireworks display at 7.15pm. Click here to find out how your family can win the opportunity to turn on the Christmas lights alongside Sid and Scrat!

Skate Van Hage

The sessions are 45 minutes each, costing £5 for children and £7 for adults. Tickets are available to purchase from Van Hage in PE1, or you can book online here.
