A Christmas never to forget

Whilst this is a Christmas like no other there is lots to look forward to in Princesshay including:

Christmas lights
If you are needing to get in that festive mood then Princesshay is a guaranteed way to immerse yourself in that inimitable Christmassy feeling. Wrap up, step outside with your family to take in the thousands and thousands of twinkling lights in Princesshay. As you stroll through Princesshay pause by Chief the stag, the illuminated throne and a huge Christmas tree decorated with over 300 individual decorations. There are queuing spots near are most popular installations so please remain socially distanced.

Giving Hub
Princesshay is collaborating with Exeter Homelessness Partnership with a new ‘pop up’ Giving Hub on Roman Walk which will be taking donations of winter coats, sleeping bags, boots and some other specific items for the charity. There will also be a ‘tap to give’ contactless donation point where shoppers can tap to donate £3 to Exeter Homelessness Partnership.

Christmas Charity Trees
Whilst a little later than planned we are pleased to be welcoming back the Charity Christmas Trees to Roman Walk. In a year when charities have taken a big financial hit while continuing to deliver desperately needed services in the toughest of circumstances it is fantastic to be able to showcase so many worthy causes and help raise awareness of the amazing work our local charities do. The Charity Trees will be lit up from Thursday 10th December for all to see.

The Chiefs Trading Post van will be onsite in Princesshay with all the merchandise any superfan needs this Christmas. Located in Eastgate in between Next and River Island it will be open Monday – Saturday 10am – 5pm, Sunday Sunday 11am- 4pm.
