Christmas Lights in Petworth

Christmas Lights in Petworth


11.00am - 8.00pm

Petworth Town Council is pleased to announce that it will be holding its annual Christmas Event on Saturday 2nd December 2017.

This event has been growing year on year and the council hope that this year can be their biggest yet!

On the day itself the Market Square and Leconfield Hall are filled with stalls which extend up Lombard Street and the High St.  All day entertainment in the past has consisted of singers, local choirs from schools and choral societies, the Town Band, Father Christmas, lantern making and parade, buskers, magician and funfair. There is also a live nativity with Darcy the donkey which processes from St Mary’s Church down Lombard St and into Market Square. The shops stay open until 8 pm and there is a shop window competition and live window displays throughout the day.

The switch on of the tree lights is at 6:30 pm with community carol singing lead by the local churches.  It is an ideal opportunity to do your Christmas shopping and a great start to your Christmas festivities.

A full programme of activities will be posted here 2 weeks before the event with timings.
