Come along to this wonderful annual event that celebrates Petworth’s true festive spirit. The fun starts at 11am and continues throughout the day with carol singers in Market Square and an amazing array of stalls and festive food and drink from local producers. There is a Santa’s Grotto and lots of children’s activities available inside the Leconfield Hall all day.
The lantern procession, led by St Mary’s Church Choir in full robes, will accompany the holy family, wise men and the shepherds - complete with donkey and goats (for sheep!) - as they perform a live nativity along the town’s streets from St Mary’s Church at 5pm. The procession travels down the pretty cobbled Lombard Street and into the Market Square where Lord Egremont will switch on the Christmas tree lights at 6.00pm.
Come and join in the fun and say hi. We'll be in the Leconfield Hall.
