Nottingham’s Victoria Centre has announced details of its opening times in the run up to Christmas.

From Wednesday 14 December – Friday 23 December (excluding Sundays), visitors will be able to enjoy extended shopping hours, with the centre open from 9am-8pm.

As Nigel Wheatley, centre director at Victoria Centre, points out, it’s already proving to be a busy December:

“We all know that Christmas has been a little strange for the last two years, but this December feels very different. There’s a real energy in the centre and everyone seems really excited to be out and about picking up presents for Christmas. It’s great that so many of our retailers are offering an extra two hours of shopping each day from 14 December.

“Our free Glow Room immersive light experience is also proving incredibly popular. Families seem to be making a real day out of visiting the city centre again this year, especially with Winter Wonderland in Market Square back in full swing, too.

“Remember, many of our Clocktower dining venues are open even later so there’s the opportunity to pick up something tasty for yourself on the way home after all that shopping!”

Opening hours at Victoria Centre for the rest of the festive period are:

Christmas Eve: 9am – 5pm
Christmas Day: Closed
Boxing Day: 9am – 6pm
Tuesday 27 December: 9am – 6pm
Wednesday 28 December: 9am – 7pm
Thursday 29 December: 9am – 6pm
Friday 30 December: 9am – 6pm
New Year’s Eve: 9am – 5pm
New Year’s Day: 11am – 5pm

Individual store opening times may vary and shoppers are advised to check on the retailer’s own website.
