Fun for the whole family when the lights are switched on
Raynes Park will come alive with the Christmas spirit with a range of entertainment for the whole family on Friday December 1 from 3.30-7pm.
This year there will be a larger stage provided by Clownfish Events and located in the car park outside Waitrose.
Merton Council have this year selected Raynes Park for the official Christmas lights switch-on, and the Mayor of Merton, Councillor Marsie Skeet, will speak at 5pm before pushing the mayoral plunger.
A live nativity will be performed with real animals and children can pay a visit to Santa’s Grotto to receive a gift from Father Christmas.
There will be entertainment by two brass bands, Stage Coach Mitcham and local school choirs from West Wimbledon Primary, Sacred Heart Primary, Holly Mount Primary, Joseph Hood Primary and Raynes Park High plus performances by adults from the Lantern Community Choir.
The festival is made possible thanks to the generous support of the following local businesses: Absolute Abode, Clownfish Events, Confidental Dental, Coombe Residential, CS Architects, Elite Car Services, Howell-Jones Solicitors, Lantern Café, Living Centre, Kings Lettings, Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward, Place Design, R&R Plumbing, Living Centre, Universal Flooring, Waitrose and Wimbledon Brewery.
With a range of trade stalls, Friday 1 December promises a great afternoon of Christmas spirit, seasonal live music, drama, entertainment and fun for all.
