This year’s free extravaganza is another jam packed day of festive fun for the whole family, ahead of the main event when the lights will be switched on, bathing the town in Christmas cheer.

Festivities take place throughout the day from 14:00 including live music, fairground rides, a festive market, treasure hunt, craft activities in Ankerside Shopping Centre led by Tamworth Community Café, a nativity under the Town Hall, the St Editha’s Church Christmas Tree Festival, walkabout characters, dance performances and face painting.

Entertainment will centre around the Touch FM stage in St Editha’s Square, which will feature performances from a range of acts throughout the afternoon from 13:00.

Young visitors will also enjoy guest appearances from Father Christmas at intervals throughout the afternoon in Ankerside Shopping Centre and will be at the lights switch on alongside Father Christmas.

The Christmas market returns this year, lining George Street with stalls selling a range of Christmas gifts, crafts, novelties, local produce and festive food.
