The return of The Glow Room Article
The must-loved Glow Room is set to make a return this Christmas, with new interactive elements to celebrate our 50th birthday.
The free experience, taking place between 2 December and 2 January, will treat visitors to a visual light performance featuring over 30,000 hanging lights, accompanied by popular Christmas songs and interactive, projected images.
Paying homage to the creator of the Emett Clock, Rowland Emett, and his love of butterflies, one wall of the Glow Room is set to be filled with interactive butterflies that change colour when touched.
The room, situated on the upper mall, will focus on providing families with a sensory experience that invites shoppers to get into the festive spirit.
Last year, over 31,000 people took a trip through the centre’s enchanted Glow Room, raising £5,500 in voluntary donations for charity, making it one of the centre’s most popular installations.
This year, voluntary donations from visitors will go towards our new charity partner, Hope Nottingham, a one-stop community support centre and food bank provider, in partnership with the Trussell Trust.
