Christmas Event Working Group
The Christmas Event is held on the first Saturday in December and is a Petworth Town Council sponsored event which gives the community of Petworth along with the local businesses the opportunity to promote the uniqueness of our wonderful Town to the many residents and visitors alike. The working group consists of representatives from the Town Council, Residents, the Community Association and Businesses.
The team of volunteers put up the lights which are provided by the Town Council with the power supplied by businesses and residents, with the two Christmas trees donated from the Leconfield estate. On the day itself the Market Square and Hall are filled with stalls which extend up Lombard Street and Golden Square. All day entertainment consists of singers, local choirs from schools and choral societies, the Town band, Father Christmas, Lantern Parade, Buskers, Magician and Funfair. The shops stay open until 8 pm. and there is also 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.
