Christmas at Liverpool ONE

This event has now ended, Check back later in the year to find out about Christmas 2017.

Join us this season for a host of festive fun. Our iconic Christmas tree is back, as well as all of your other favourite decorations to bring some sparkle to every corner of Liverpool ONE. Participating stores will be running festive workshops and events and Christmas returns to Chavasse Park, with traditional tasty market treats and the classic carousel and helter skelter rides, so keep an eye on this page as we update activities over the next few weeks!


It wouldn’t be Christmas without a ginormous tree (more room for presents), so that’s exactly what we’re giving you. Our 30 metre tall Christmas tree is back, 280 heart lights and all!

Catch the daily light shows, which will dazzle while you Christmas shop. Father Christmas introduces the message of Christmas, followed by a few Christmas party favourites to dance along to! The Christmas Party show will play daily at the following times:

Monday – Saturday
4pm, 5pm, 6pm, 7pm

4pm, 5pm

Tip: Standing in the middle of Paradise Street, between Smiggle and H&M, is the perfect place to enjoy the daily light animation. Each light animation lasts 5 minutes,

LEGO Santa Express

The LEGO Santa Express has pulled into Liverpool ONE and will be stopping here throughout the Christmas period! The train is made entirely of LEGO bricks – over 500,000 in fact(!) – and features three carriages: the engine and driver’s cabin, a carriage full of presents and a carriage delivering a Christmas tree.

Get your cameras ready because the train is complete with special effects such as lights and sounds and will make the perfect selfie spot with our 30 metre Christmas tree in the background.

Share your photos on social media using the hashtag #LetsBuildXmas

The LEGO Santa Express is free to board. Find it on Paradise Street until Thursday 29 December.
