Shine Bright

The Lexicon, is looking to bring some festive cheer to the town centre this Christmas with six weeks of twinkling attractions and family fun.

A combination of glittering lights, dazzling entertainers and sparkling treats will combine to make The Lexicon, the place to shine bright this Christmas.

The star of the show, a 10 metre musical tree, covered in brightly lit stars and playing your favourite Christmas tunes, will go live on Friday, November 26 2021, heralding the start of the festive season.

There’s a Star Trail for families to follow around the town centre, with artwork created by local school children.

And if you’re looking for that perfect Christmas Instagram shot, then check out the two selfie stations in Princess Square and Braccan Walk.

As part of festivities, The Lexicon is also looking for people who have been shining stars over the past year. Anyone can nominate a friend, family member or anyone that deserves a special New Year treat. 

Rob Morris, general manager at The Lexicon says: “It’s not quite the time for big gatherings and events, just yet, but that’s not to say we can’t all get into the festive spirit this Christmas.

“With entertainers and musical acts every weekend, beautiful lights and an array of other activities, we have a festive programme in place that we hope will delight visitors to The Lexicon and support our local community.”

As an early treat, on Thursday, November 18 2021, The Lexicon Christmas Market, will return to the town centre, with its picturesque wooden chalets, selling an array of festive food and drink.

Cllr Marc Brunel-Walker, executive member for economic development and regeneration at Bracknell Forest Council says: “We have worked hard this year with the team at The Lexicon to bring festive fun to the town centre. With COVID rates still high, all events have been designed to ensure that people can enjoy the Christmas activities while staying safe. I can’t wait to visit the ever-popular Christmas market to pick up some Christmas treats!”
