Petworth Town Council Christmas Lights Event Committee have joined forces with both St Mary’s Church, Petworth and the National Trust at Petworth House to present a spectacular Lantern Procession and Live Nativity to celebrate the switching on of Petworth Christmas Lights every December.
The fun starts at 11am and continues through the day with carol singers in Market Square and an amazing array of stalls and festive food and drink from local providers all day. There is a Santa’s Grotto and lots children’s activities available inside the Leconfield Hall all day.
The Lantern Procession, lead by St Mary’s Church Choir in full robes, will accompany the Holy Family, the Wise Men and the Shepherds complete with the donkey and goats (for sheep!) as they perform a live Nativity along the town’s streets from St Mary’s Church from 5pm. The procession travels down pretty cobbled Lombard Street and into the Market Square where the Christmas Tree lights will be switched on at 6.30pm by Lord Egremont followed by the Live Window Competition prizes and the Petworth Town Band leading us in Carols and music.
