Chrispmas is coming!

Chrisp Street Market is being transformed into a Winter Wonderland on Friday 30th November, 2-7pm as we switch on the magical Christmas lights.

There will be activities throughout the day for kids and adults – festive fun for all the family!

Grab your skates and head to the ice rink before taking a family photo in the giant snow globe. Pick up some handmade Christmas presents at the craft market, and take a visit to Santa who’s got some early gifts in his sleigh.

Enjoy performances from local talent, and dance into the evening with music from 5 piece Swing band Palace Avenue Swing.
