Christmas at Victoria Leeds
This Christmas we’ll be bringing a touch of festive glamour to Victoria Leeds, reconnecting shoppers to the joys of in-real-life experiences. Whether you’re keeping celebrations small and cosy, or finally going all-out festive, experience exactly what you want to in our ‘Little Big Christmas’.
Our show-stopping Christmas window takes pride of place on Sidney Street – the heart of Victoria Leeds – until Boxing Day. In true Miracle on 34th Street fashion, toy soldiers recently revealed the window on the street which has been transformed into a quintessential scene from any Christmas classic, including snowfall all day and festive bratwurst and drinks, making for an unforgettable Christmas shopping trip.
A trip to Leeds wouldn’t be complete without heading to the famous Christmas tree in Victoria Quarter for a selfie with our light-up antlers. This year also sees the return of Victoria Gate’s signature giant light-up reindeer and other beautiful twinkling decorations.
With an array of Christmas activities planned, including some very special magical performances from local choirs, the Piano Trail, Leeds Conservatoire and Opera North, we’re encouraging shoppers to ditch last minute shopping and hours of late-night online scrolling, for a truly memorable experience.
Shopping for Gifts and Festive Style
With a selection of luxury retailers, we’re the perfect place to treat yourself or someone special this festive season, so get into the party spirit with a number of high-end boutiques. For those opting for ultimate glamour this Christmas, try Reiss, Ted Baker, Mint Velvet or Vivienne Westwood for an eye-catching look. If exploring the wilder side of winter is more your thing, head down to Seasalt, Sweaty Betty or, the recently opened, Pretty Green – the brainchild of Oasis star Liam Gallagher, offering parkers perfect for the winter months. Our range of jewellers have the perfect piece to dazzle this season, or find a unique gift for a loved one that has it all at Harvey Nichols or John Lewis & Partners.
Show-stopping Feasts & Celebrations
