Haverhill’s weekend of fun, family activities this Christmas
Haverhill Town Council is pleased to announce another weekend of fun, family activities this Christmas. On Friday 4 December between 5.30pm and 8.00pm, the town centre will be open for late night shopping for the Family Christmas Night. There will also be charity stalls, street entertainment, children’s rides, refreshments, evening market and more! The Town Centre will be closed to traffic between 1.00pm and 11.00pm.
At 6.30pm on the Market Square there is the Christmas Light Switch On. Switching on the brand new lights in the town we have Janey Lee Grace, star of Radio 2 and the Fairy Godmother in this year’s panto. She will be wearing a beautiful dress that was made by the same person who designed Princess Diana`s wedding dress. The Ugly Sisters may very well try to steal the limelight and extra entertainment will be in the form of a special show with songs from a very icy kingdom!
Later on Friday night, head down to the Recreation Ground at 8.00pm for the Grand Fireworks Display. The skies will light up with a spectacular display fired to a special soundtrack including some of the big pop hits of 2015 for this highlight in the town’s calendar. The Fireworks Display is free with a voluntary bucket collection.
Saturday 5 December sees Seasonal Saturday a range of Christmassy entertainers and attractions in the Town Centre from 11.00am.
Nick Keeble from the Town Council said
‘The Christmas weekend is just the ticket for getting in the mood for all the fun and festivities ahead. Come and pick up a Winter in Haverhill brochure from the Arts Centre to see what other Christmassy stuff is going on in town’
