Christmas light switch on
With less than a month to go before the big day, come along to Newbury Market Place on Sunday 26 November where you can meet Santa in his grotto from 11am. There is more excitement at 12.30pm in the Market Place when there will be live entertainment on stage, including performances from local acts such as the popular Sion Whiley and Paper Houses. As dusk falls, there will be magic in the air as the annual Santa Parade sets off from Market Street at 4.45pm and makes its way around the town and back to the Market Place, ready for the big Christmas Lights Switch-On planned for 5.20pm. Two lucky winners of the Newbury Reindeer Hunt will ride in Santa’s sleigh during the parade.
