Whitchurch Christmas Lights Switch-On

Saturday 30th November 2019.

A great day in town for the whole family!

So much more than just a switch on, Whitchurch is offering a packed day full of fun on Saturday 30th November. The day kicks off at 10am with a large Christmas Market both inside the Civic Centre and outside in the High Street. The market will showcase high quality craft with a large food and drink element, with many producers returning from the town’s Food & Drink Festival. Make sure you come early as these producers sell out quickly.

As the light fades the outdoor stalls will be lit with festive Christmas lights; a perfect opportunity to start your Christmas shopping early and spread the festive cheer! From warm G&T’s and one of the best Craft Breweries in the region to freshly made cheese toasties, burgers and crepes you will be spoilt for choice. Don’t forget to visit The Bullring where you will find the children’s mini fairground and Rotary Club’s Father Christmas.

Children can make a lantern in the Market Hall ahead of the parade whilst their families enjoy a hot drink and cooked breakfast at Sarah’s Café.

St Alkmund’s Church is hosting their annual Crib Festival from 9.30am – 6pm with a wonderful array of nativity scenes. Warm up in church with coffee and mince pies.

The lantern parade leaves the Market Hall at 4.30pm in preparation for the big switch on outside the Civic Centre at 5pm. Crowds will be treated to a live performance from Josh Whittall.

Enjoy late night shopping at the town’s independent businesses until 6pm.
