What’s On in Nottingham: December

Vicki Mileson

Thursday, 1 December 2022

Lingo Magazine’s go-to guide for the top cultural events going on in Nottingham this month. December is promising to be the month of Christmas fun, ice skating and comedy acts before we all head home for the winter break.

Christmas at Wollaton Hall – from 2 December to 1 January

Are you really a Nottingham student if you haven’t ventured over to Wollaton Hall in the freezing cold to see some Christmas lights? Wollaton Hall will transform into a winter wonderland with lights set to delight all ages – perfect to take any friends or family who you are lucky to have visit you.

Nottingham Contemporary Craft Fair – from 2 December to 4 December

For the first weekend of the month, the lowest floor of the Nottingham Contemporary will house a range of stalls for you to browse and buy handmade stocking fillers. Over 40 designers will attend the event and it’s a great way to shop locally this Christmas. It is free entry and there is no need to book.


Nottingham Vintage Kilo Sale – 3 December

Sustainable fashion lovers unite! Organised by Worth The Weight, St Mary’s Church will transform into a vintage kilo sale from 11am to 5pm, with over nine tonnes of stock for you to sort through and find those hidden gems. General admission tickets to enter the event are £2. For early bird admission, the ticket is £3.  


Beeston Christmas Lights Switch On and Christmas Market – 3 December

In the heart of Beeston, there will be an array of market stalls and street theatre acts as well as a choir to keep you entertained and in the festive spirit. The light switch on will take place at 5:30pm, with fireworks kicking off at 6:30pm.


The Canalhouse Comedy Night – 14 December

Featuring a variety of established acts, the Canalhouse will be taken over for a night of laughs. Tickets are £2 and are available here.


Swiftogeddon: The Taylor Swift Club Night – 16 December

As if putting a load of Swifties in one room altogether wouldn’t be chaotic enough, this time it’s a club night too. Rescue Rooms will host a night of Taylor Swift fan favourites and her Christmas songs.

Nottingham Winter Wonderland 2022 – until 31 December

The Christmas market has returned. You’ll have until New Year’s Eve to check out the various hot chocolate stalls or try a Yorkshire Pudding Wrap, and then top it off with a trip to the ice rink’s skate-through bar.


Christmas Skating at the National Ice Centre – until 8 January

If you think there’s no better way to get into the festive spirit than seeing your friends fall over on the ice and laughing at them, head on down to the National Ice Centre for their Christmas skating.

Being a bilingual family (French mother and British father,) living in France I thought your article was extremely interesting . Have you research on bilingualism ? It seems that when the mother is British and the father French and they both live in France their children seem to be more bilingual than when the mother is French and the father is British . This is what we called mother tongue , isn't it ?
