The Spirit of Christmas

This Christmas, no matter what you have, there’s something special for everyone to enjoy at the Arndale.

We understand that this Christmas may be particularly difficult for many people in our local community. Everyone deserves to have a special Christmas Day and it’s the Manchester way to look after our own. 

We’re taking the opportunity to give back to our community through our charitable partnerships and Christmas events, and our goal is to make things better and bring joy to people across Greater Manchester.  

From 18 November, we’ll be collecting donations for Mustard Tree at our Giving Grotto, accepting warm clothes, children’s toys, Christmas gift sets and more.

We’ll also be running a schedule of FREE festive family events, including our pop-up cinema, storytelling sessions, Christmas dance lessons, face painting and craft activities.

There’s something special for everyone to enjoy at the Arndale. For the fashion lovers, treaters, gamers, and entertainers. For the window shoppers and the deal coppers, the coffee catchups, Friday night looks, last minute stocking filler and I can’t wait for Christmas dinner!

We’re here for you; whatever you need us for and whether you have a little or a lot. Ahead of your visit, discover places to eat, drink, play and shop this Christmas right here.

We are the Arndale, the spirit of Christmas.
