Berkhamsted Festival of Light

27 November 2016

Sunday 27 November 2016 (from 3.30 pm until 6 pm) is the date for this year's Festival of Light. Please do come along and join in the fun and festivities. The High Street will be closed from Castle Street to the Kings Road junction from 1pm to 7.30pm.

There will be stalls lining the High Street selling festive fair, crafts, mulled wine and mince pies.

In the Civic Centre Mrs Claus will be looking after the Elves' Posting House and children can write, crayon or design a special message to Father Christmas. Entry to the Posting House is £2 per child.

At 4.30 pm there will be a Nativity tableau, carol singing and readings followed by the Town blessing.

The Ashlyns samba band will lead the way for Father Christmas and his sleigh after the lights switch on at 5.15 pm. The results of the Best Dressed Window competition will also be announced.

This fantastic, family event takes place with the help of many dedicated voluntary organisations. It is also supported by Marks and Spencer, Waitrose and Tesco who provide refreshments for the many volunteers on the day. London Midland Railways also provide free parking in the station car park. The Town Council would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who contributes to the event making it the success it is.
