🎄💞🎅🤶12 Days of Christmas Give Back🤶🎅💞🎄
We are super excited to be taking part in the #YorksGotYouCovered 12 days of Christmas give back campaign this year which has been organised by Technology in Play.
If you want to get involved, all you have to do at any point in the 12 days of Christmas (26th December to Jan 5th) is visit our collection point in the Information Centre and drop off your old coat. TiP will collect the coats, arrange for them to be cleaned and in partnership with Carecent York, The Lunar Project & Arc Light to distribute them to those in need this winter.
This year we are super excited to announce that we are taking part in the York Ice Trail! The York Ice trail is the biggest outdoor ice trail in the UK and will completely transform the city into a magical and glittering place.
The Ice Trail will take place on 9th and 10th December from 10am – 5pm each day. If you come along and visit our ice sculpture and take a selfie with it you will have the chance to win £100 shopping vouchers if you either tweet them to us @monkscrossshopping or share it to our Facebook page! The sculpture can be found outside the information centre, next to New Look. You can also enjoy FREE gift wrapping on the 9th December too so come along and get some of your Christmas shopping sorted 🙂
Reindeer visit Monks Cross!
Reindeer have to be one of the most magical creatures, especially at Christmas time. Come and meet the beautiful reindeer here at Monks Cross! There will also be FREE gift wrapping and face painting taking place inside the Information Centre on the day. Unbrass Band will be carol singing outside the information centre too!

Bling your Bauble!
Visit us on Sunday 10th December and you can get a personalised bauble! Pick your bauble, ribbon and then get a name printed on. You can then take your bauble home in a gorgeous little craft Christmas box to keep it safe. They will make the perfect little gifts for friends and family or why not create one as a lovely treat for yourself!
Whilst you wait for your bauble to be personalised you will also get a yummy mince pie… what more could you want!
Activity will take place in the Information Centre next to New Look.

Christmas can be a crazy time for everyone searching high and low for that perfect gift! Thankfully we have got two days of FREE gift wrapping at Monks Cross to help you out by wrapping your gifts to the highest standard! It is time to get the bows out and spread that festive love 🙂
FREE gift wrapping will take place in the centre information centre on Saturday 9th December and Saturday 16th December from 11am – 4pm on both days!
All you need to do is show the receipt from a gift you have bought at Monks Cross and then let the talented team wrap up your gifts, in true Rowan Atkinson Love Actually style!
