It’s Christmas week and seasonal festivities are well underway in and around Peterborough One! From great last-minute gift ideas to tempting treats and Christmas carolling to local events, there’s no better place to be on the lead up to the big day!

Open for Business

If you’re yet to get goodies for your nearest and dearest, then don’t fret, PE1’s stores, services and eateries will be open until Christmas Day. Please note that individual store opening hours may vary, so check with retailers before visiting to avoid disappointment.

Skate Van Hage

Don’t forget that our ice skating rink is open over the Christmas and New Year period. The magical rink is made of real ice, and comes complete with atmospheric lighting and festive music. It is open from midday to 8pm daily until Monday 8th January. You can book tickets here.

Christmas Market

Be sure to visit our Christmas market up until Christmas Eve. Experience the sights and sounds of the season in a Christmassy setting and find unique crafts and last-minute gift ideas for family and friends in our wooden chalet stalls. You’ll find a variety of handmade and vintage items from local traders, a selection of arts and crafts and decadent home décor.

Offers and Promotions

Many of our stores already have sales, offers and discounts available to shoppers – it’s the perfect time to bag a bargain! After Boxing Day, however, you can expect to see even more cut-price finds in our shops. Don’t miss out and be sure to head back to PE1 from Boxing Day onwards.


PE1 is looking forward to the New Year and everything 2018 will bring. Along with an ever-evolving retail mix, there are plenty of exciting events, sparkling shows and great giveaways lined up. Keep your eyes peeled to our website, Facebook and Twitter to ensure you’re up-to-date with all the latest developments.

Targetfollow, managing agents for PE1, says: “2017 has been a very exciting and busy year for the renamed Peterborough One Retail Park. We’ve hosted several eye-popping events throughout the year, including our Summer Carnival, Halloween Spooktacular and Christmas Lights Switch on. Christmas is always a hectic time, but we’re thoroughly enjoying all the festivities the season has to offer. We’d like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you at PE1 throughout 2018.”
