Download as iCal file
Friday 18 November 2022, 08:00am - 07:30pm


From 4pm to 6pm kids can drop in to the Town Hall to see Father Christmas where there will also be FREE kids craft activities, while the grown-ups can enjoy a cuppa at the Rotary cafe. 

From 5pm you'll be able to spot street entertainers in and around the market, and look out for Santa's sleigh a bit later too!

For one night only we're transforming the steps of the Town Hall into a stage, all set for a fabulous line-up of festive tunes from the ever-popular MAD (Marlborough Academy of Dance and Drama) and students from St John's, then, once the lights go on at 6.30pm, local duo Amanda & Phil will round off the entertainment with a Christmassy set.

For the safety of those attending the event please bear in mind that the High Street will be closed between 5-8pm and, to ease the flow of traffic, parking will be suspended on George Lane and Pewsey Road from 3pm
