What’s on at the Lexicon this Christmas in Bracknell
I wrote back in September about the opening of the new Lexicon shopping centre in Bracknell which has really been an amazing addition to our town. It’s transformed so much for the local residents and is so great to have such a buzzing town centre, with loads of great places to eat out and shops to visit. My friends and I are looking forward to enjoying a Christmas meal out at one of the restaurants next week and this is the first year we haven’t had to travel further afield.
My children and I attended the turning on of the Christmas lights back in November which was turned on by none other than the Snow Queen. The grand finale saw snow fluttering across the high street much to the children’s delight.
Bracknell has always been great for family activities, even before the Lexicon opened. But with the new town centre opening in all of its glory there are lots to do this Christmas.
Post a Christmas Wish for a Loved One
A giant post box has been placed outside of Pandora in the shopping centre where people can post a Christmas wish for a loved one.
To take part, all you need to do is nominate a loved one that has been a star this year and deserves a treat. Which is such a lovely idea and a great way to recognise people in the community who support and help others.
The post box will close at 5pm on the 17th December so that the Lexicon can make 5 people’s Christmas wishes come true.
Christmas Wishes Workshop
There will be a Christmas wishes workshop on Sunday 10th December, where children can create their own Christmas wishes cards. The workshops will take place on the High Street, opposite Game, no registration is required.
Give the Lexicon Gift Card this Christmas
The Lexicon now also have their own gift card that has launched just in time for Christmas. It can be spent at over 70 shops and restaurants and can be purchased in £5 denominations.
