Looking forward to having a stall at this years Petworth Christmas Event. 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.
