The Great Reindeer Round-up launches in Nottingham


Help is needed in Nottingham city centre this Christmas time to round-up Santa’s Reindeer who have snuck out to do some Christmas shopping!

The Great Reindeer Round-up is being launched by It’s in Nottingham on Monday 10 December 2018 and with over 70 shops, including John Lewis, House of Fraser, Marks & Spencer, Tesco – Fletcher Gate, Hotel Chocolat, Paperchase, White Stuff and TK Maxx taking part in this free event, it is the perfect opportunity to discover more of the city centre with your family.

Pick up a free map from Nottingham Tourist Information Centre on Smithy Row and follow the trail which shows all the businesses taking part.  Look out for a ‘Find our Reindeer’ sticker in the window of participating stores before going in to hunt down the missing reindeer.


People just need to write down the name of the reindeer they find against the corresponding business on the trail map.  People have two weeks to find ten or more of the decorative reindeer before returning their maps to the Tourist Information Centre before 2 pm Monday 24 December to collect a sweet reward.


“After the success of the Halloween Trail that we organised in October Half Term, we  thought it would be another great way for people to keep their children entertained for free this holiday time whilst doing their Christmas shopping in the city centre,” said Naomi Hartley, a director of Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID), the organisers of this It’s In Nottingham initiative.


Christmas activities will also be taking place on Bridlesmith Gate in the city centre on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 December 2018. People can have their photo taken in the snow globe that will be towards the end of Bridlesmith Gate on Low Pavement, on the Saturday between 10am and 5pm and on Sunday from 11am to 4pm. There will be alcohol-free mulled wine and hot chestnut giveaways until stocks last and carol singers will be keeping shoppers entertained from midday until 5pm on Saturday and until 3.30pm on Sunday.
