Reepham’s Christmas event, the Festival of Light, is being held on Thursday, 7 December, starting at 4.30 pm.
Graham Andrew of Funforce will be heading up the children’s entertainment and family fun with music and games – and snowballs!
The festivities will once again start with a magical children’s lantern parade from St Mary’s Church at 5 pm.
Any child who wishes to join the parade may do so and can bring a torch or home-made lantern – but no candles or lanterns with naked flames please. Children (and parents) should gather in St Mary’s by 4.45 pm in readiness for the parade.
Following the parade, Santa will be arriving in magnificent style to his new grotto.
There will also be around 30 stalls dotted around the market place, carol singing, music and a craft fair in St Michael’s.
Setting up for the event takes some considerable time on the day, so we have obtained permission to close the Market Place to traffic from 1 pm onwards.
We would be particularly grateful if residents and other Market Place users could move cars from the roadside between the Market Place and the church and between the Market Place and Townsend Corner by 1 pm as these spaces will be needed for stalls on the day.
Finally, when you come along to the Festival of Light, please bring a light. Then we will indeed see you there.
Brenda Gostling, Chairman, FOL Team
