Christmas Market with a Santa’s Grotto – 5th December 2021

This year, plan to bring your family to visit Santa at his new magical Grotto in Bicknacre, where they can have their photos taken with Santa.  Christmas gifts can be purchased whilst listening to carols and having a warm glass of mulled wine or tea/coffee and cake. There will be lots of wonderful crafts and gift ideas on your own doorstep. So, no need to travel to crushed cities with high parking fees this Christmas.

Free Entrance  – Entrance to visit Santa  – Price to follow

All profits will go to a local charity or to a village project, for us all to enjoy.

To be able to put on all these wonderful events, for you & your family to enjoy – we need help.


Please help – Parish Volunteer Co-ordinators are needed to help marshal and  set up on all events, as well as generally assisting, such as serving the mulled wine or at the

entrance to Santa’s Grotto. Help make these events successful and have fun at the same time…..Please give a little back to your community.
