NAILSWORTH Noel – the town’s highly popular start to Christmas shopping – will take place on the evening of Friday, November 29.
This year’s Noel will be packed full of attractions, including a Winter Wonderland, by kind courtesy of Cheltenham Yurt Hire – and hidden in there will be Santa in his magical grotto.
Don’t worry about the weather, as Snow Business will be making sure it’s seasonally snowy.
The Noel evening is full of family attractions, including a fun fair; a farmers’ market with food, drink and crafts; a classic car show; a local Denis Brown & Sons steam engine; and a river of light illuminating the town’s stream.
Music comes courtesy of Stroud Rock Choir /The Revolution Band and DJ Dubbu.
Markets and the fair begin from 3.30pm. And the Christmas magic really kicks off when Mr and Mrs Claus lead a festive parade around the town – joined by the children of Nailsworth – starting from the fire station at 5pm.
The evening finishes at 11pm.
A park-and-ride service, courtesy of Rover Coaches, is available from 4.30pm at the Barn Site, Avening Road; and from 6pm at the Blue Diamond Garden Centre, both until 9.30pm.
