Christmas at Millennium Point

It’s Christmas at Millennium Point, but not as you’ve ever seen it! Get festive with a programme of exciting events, including the chance to meet Santa himself, craft workshops, stalls, family entertainment and more, all completely free!

Christmas has arrived at Millennium Point, and we want to make sure everybody knows it! We’ve brought sparkle to the Eastside of Birmingham City centre with a giant 39ft Christmas tree, lights and decorations to transform our landmark public building into a winter wonderland complete with a full programme of fun and free activities for all the family!

Bring the kids to meet Santa himself, take a selfie in front of Birmingham’s largest indoor Christmas tree and get crafty with our Christmas craft activities with stalls. All completely for free!

Millennium Point is just a 5-minute walk from Moor Street station and the big Primark, and 15-minutes from New Street and the Frankfurt Christmas Market. Just look for the building with the big stars!
