Spalding Christmas Celebration

8th December: Hall Place, Spalding

There will be plenty of festive fun in Spalding on Saturday 8th December, as a Christmas Celebration takes place in Hall Place and at Ayscoughfee Hall Museum and Gardens.

The event will run from midday until 5pm at Hall Place and 11am to 3.45pm at Ayscoughfee, and will include a range of activities, performances and entertainment to bring the community together, as well as to promote a local Christmas shopping experience using the variety of independent and other shops and stalls on offer in Spalding.

At Ayscoughfee there will be craft-making sessions running inside the hall (charges apply for the craft making kits), Christmas story time with Father Christmas, Garden Eye-Spy and a very special Christmas trail to explore. In the afternoon there will be the opportunity to meet Father Christmas, as well as some of his Reindeer, in the gardens to make sure he knows exactly what present you're hoping for.

Hall Place will have street entertainment including Christmas themed stilt walkers and Circus Elves, and musical performances throughout the afternoon from Spalding Brass Band, Vibe Choir and Holbeach Brass Band, who will be performing traditional Christmas carols and songs.

Father Christmas himself will close the event from around 4.30pm, when he switches on the town's Christmas tree lights which will remain lit throughout the festive period.
