Warm Up This Winter With Highcross

Highcross Leicester provides the perfect escape to beat the winter blues with a range of exciting events for the whole family to immerse themselves in, with some festive fun and retail therapy while enjoying mouth-watering food and drink and showstopping entertainment.

Get into the Christmas spirit by exploring St. Peter’s Square to admire the dazzling giant reindeer and beams of sparkling light which flood the outdoor space. Stop off at the Jägerhaus pop-up; a festive snug, serving up delicious hot chocolate and mulled wine to keep you cosy as you wander through the holiday oasis. There’s plenty to keep you fuelled, with a freshly grilled Bratwurst, Cheese Krakaur and a selection of traditional German and British seasonal food and drinks.

Whether you’re in need of some post-work retail therapy, last minute Christmas gifts or a delicious dinner – Highcross provides the perfect festive setting, making Christmas shopping easy for you.

There’s plenty of options for recharging and relaxing during the holiday rush too. Book into Clarins spa to help you unwind or take the load off with some friendly competition on the greens at Treetop Adventure Golf. Whatever you’re after, there is no shortage of leisure and entertainment options at Highcross.

And if you want to kick back with the family during those harsh winter days, cosy up with some popcorn, your favourite sweets and a movie at the impressive 12-screen Cinema de Lux which will be showcasing blockbuster hits including the latest instalment of Star Wars and the highly anticipated Frozen 2: Into the Unknown.
