Trinity Leeds is kicking off the Christmas celebrations in style with a two-day spectacle full of freebies, giveaways, deals – and plenty of surprises.
‘Wonder Weekend’ on November 4 and 5 will be a festive extravaganza full of free treats and live entertainment – culminating in the magical switch on of Europe’s biggest Wishmas Tree.
The stunning light switch on includes a balloon drop and a show-stopping performance by contortionists and aerial acrobats from Cirque Bijou, and starts at 5pm on Saturday.
To make the most of Wonder Weekend, shoppers are invited to pre-register for a free ‘Trinity Treat Card,’ which can be used to redeem extra special freebies such as entry to a VIP pamper parlour, sherbert shack, slumber cinema, edible bubble experience, champagne pong, toffee apple workshop, and even a ball pool bar. There are also 5,000 Trinity tote bags full of goodies to give away.
Dan Wharton, marketing manager, said: “It’s hard to put into words just how incredible Christmas is going to be at Trinity Leeds this year – the list of surprises, entertainment and giveaways is endless and we can’t wait to get the people of Leeds swept up in the excitement of the festive season.
“Some of the best treats are available to those who sign up for a ‘Trinity Treat’ card – you’ll have to be quick though, as we only have a limited amount!”
Trinity Treat Cards are available by visiting www.trinityleeds.com/wonder-weekend-trinity-leeds.
Shoppers who don’t manage to bag a Trinity Treat Card can still fill up on free candy canes, mince pies, roasted chestnuts and mulled apple juice.
Throughout the weekend, visitors will also be treated to performances from stilt-walking, super-sized trees, soulful choirs, living doll performers – and even a singing nun known as Musical Ruth.
Vlique will also be returning with a pop-up fitness experience hosted by influencers and music from a live DJ, and the West Yorkshire Playhouse will hide wardrobes around the shopping centre, which will be filled with theatrical costumes for visitors to try on in the run-up to The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
As part of Wonder Weekend, Trinity Leeds is also offering the chance to create your own edible selfie. Lucky golden ticket holders will win the chance to get their head made entirely out of chocolate, courtesy of Candy Mechanics – keep your eyes peeled for a member of the Trinity Leeds concierge team and ask them for a golden ticket to take away your chocolate lollipop.
Drivers who park at the Trinity Leeds car park during Wonder Weekend will also get the chance to play ‘Spin to Win’ – where they could win free parking, or a free piece of tasty Yorkshire parkin!
