On Friday 1st of December, Huntingdon will be transformed into a winter wonderland as the doors to a THREE DAY Traditional Christmas Market open! 12 noon is the start time and Santa’s Grotto and his trusty Elves will be hard at work from 3pm to 6.30pm. That same evening at 7.00pm, the town will light up with beautiful new Christmas lights, so make sure you don’t miss the big countdown on the Market Square! HCR104fm will be there with our outside broadcast van covering all the action from 12 noon. There’s a stage in the Market Square for the three days and live acts will be performing throughout the whole weekend.
For three days, Father Christmas and his elves will be in town, along with face-painters and the balloon man and the Market Square will be full of a fantastic range of festive food, drink and gifts and snow! Yes our own snow, just in case the weather doesn’t produce some itself we have some on hand to make it a really Christmassy occasion. Lots of craft things to do for the children in the Elves Workshop and a free gift for each child who visits Santa himself.
This all comes with a wide range of Christmas entertainment, music and merriment, all brought to you by Huntingdon Town Council and The Market Square Group.
So, remember, Friday 1st until Sunday 3rd of December, Huntingdon’s first THREE DAY Christmas Market, with the Christmas Lights Switch On at 7.00pm in the Market Square on Friday 1st – make sure you don’t miss it!
This event is supported by: Huntingdon First, HCR104fm, The Rotary Club of Huntingdon Cromwell, Huntingdon Tesco Extra Community Space and the Snack Shack!
