Christmas at Finlayson

The atmospheric lighting and the experience wall at the Väinö Linna Square bring joy to the darkening evenings of the end of the year! The beautiful factory area has many design and Christmas shops as well as wonderful events also during the Christmas season. While shopping for design products, you can also visit art exhibitions at the Himmelblau Gallery and the Palmroth exhibition, for instance.

You are warmly welcome to enjoy your time at the centre of art and culture.

 

Enjoy the atmospheric Christmas square

The Väinö Linna Square will be adorned with Christmas decorations! The Christmas lights, the experiential light artworks projected on the wall of Kuusvooninkinen starting from early evenings as well as the Christmas calendar stories create an atmosphere straight out of a fairy tale. The Christmas Square will be open from 28 November to 6 January between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m.

 

Fill Santa’s sack with gifts from the design and Christmas shops

In November and December, there will be as much as four festive pop-up shops in the area.

DOT design shop, a Christmas shop selling local design and art, will be open in Terde from 13 November to 19 December.

Pukimo POP UP will be serving customers in the Media 54 building from 13 November to 23 December.

NYTdesign, a pop-up shop selling Finnish design, will be charming people for the fourth time in Vooninki from 2–22 December. This Christmas, the Martha Organisation’s Christmas sales will also join the area’s offerings with Finnish handicrafts and Christmas delicacies from 10–11 December on the 4th floor of Väinö Linnan aukio 15.

 

Activities and entertainment for children

Little elves will have their own day of entertainment in December! Children are invited to the Lasten Finlayson: Tonttujen Werstas (Children’s Finlayson: Elves’ Workshop) event on 4 December between 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. at the Finnish Labour Museum Werstas, where they can visit an elf trail and enjoy a children’s concert, among other activities.

Hiirulaisen joulukalenteri  will have a sequel, and there will be a lot to experience both online and on the wall at the Väinö Linna Square. We’ll share more details as we get closer to December!
