Christmas Parade at White Rose Centre

Merry GIFmas: Christmas Cheer Aplenty with Magical Parade at White Rose

White Rose Shopping Centre is kicking off the countdown to Christmas with a spectacular Christmas Family Parade – free to attend, complete with a special white-bearded visitor – and a fun GIF booth so that visitors can create their own animated festive greeting messages.


Santa Claus himself will be heading up the Parade from 4:30pm on Thursday 10 November 2016 and welcoming the festive season at White Rose, which sees extended late-night opening hours from 9am up to 10pm Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm on Saturdays, and 11am to 5pm on Sundays. Shoppers can expect plenty of giveaways, freebies, and amazing offers from various shops and restaurants in the centre.

Steven Foster, General Manager of White Rose Shopping Centre, said:

“Our Christmas Family Parade is always one of the highlights of the year, and we pride ourselves on making it a fun and family-friendly affair. This year, our GIFmas booth will add even more festive cheer to the occasion, inviting families to snap animated Christmas images to send on to friends and loved ones.

“We’re also celebrating the launch of our extended opening hours, which, in addition to our thousands of free parking spaces and the convenience of so many great brands under one roof, helps to make Christmas that little bit easier for the families of Leeds.”

The White Rose Christmas Family Parade begins at 4.30pm on Thursday 10 November – head down early to grab a great viewing point. The White Rose GIFmas booth will be open for visitors to use from 10am for one day only.
