This year’s Christmas in Ringwood event is scheduled for Sunday 1st December 2019.

The event marks the start of the Christmas period in the town with entertainment for children and families, the turning on of the Christmas Lights and a Christmas Market showcasing local crafts, foods, drinks and gifts.

This year we have brand new Christmas Lights in the Town which extend further than in previous years.

The official switch-on will take place at 6 p.m. after a day of festivities in the Town Centre which will include two parades with Santa arriving in his grotto and then arriving again to turn on the lights, street and stage entertainment, children’s fairground rides and a Christmas Market.

There will be free parking in the Town’s car parks.

The event is organised by Ringwood Events Team acting on behalf of Ringwood Town Council.

More information about performers and timings will follow.

Its not too late to get involved!
