Raynes Park Christmas Festival

Friday 05 December | 3.30pm – 7pm 

This Christmas, following the success of last year’s inaugural event, another “Raynes Park Christmas Festival” is being organised for the local community. On Friday 05 December, from 3.30pm – 7pm there will be live music around the Christmas tree, a Santa’s Grotto, a kid’s Advent Calendar, a live nativity, and a children’s tombola. The big moment will be at 5pm when the Christmas tree lights get switched on. Key partners include “MyRaynesPark”, Merton Council, the Raynes Park Association, plus local businesses, churches and schools. 

This will be a great event for people of all ages to come together and celebrate the beginning of the Christmas season in Raynes Park. Children will enjoy the opportunity to visit Santa, and the live nativity (complete with real farm animals that can be petted). Adults will be able to do late night shopping at many stores, and will appreciate the free mince pies, mulled wine and assorted other refreshments being put on by local businesses. 

Main venues will include the Christmas tree and live music outside the train station, Santa’s Grotto at the Tavern, a nativity near Waitrose, and carol singing outside Absolute Abode and St Anthony’s at the Raynes Park Health Centre. 

Two other events will also celebrate Christmas this December:

·                     ‘Twas the Week before Christmas: Tues 16 December, 7.15pm – 9.15pm, the Library. An open evening of Christmas stories, poems, readings… anything spoken word.

·                     Carols in the Tavern: Thurs 18 December, 8pm – 10pm, Raynes Park Tavern.   A live band will lead a Christmas sing-a-long of yuletide songs and fun.
