Abingdon Christmas Extravaganza 2019

The Abingdon Christmas Extravaganza takes place on 30th November 2019 and kicks-off the festive season in Abingdon. It's a family-focused festive event in the heart of the town where the community comes together as one.

Expect Santa's sleigh and lots of activities in Bath Street, Bury Street, Market Place and town shops, as well as activities for kids at St Nicolas Church.

Abingdon's Christmas lights switch-on will be carried out with panache by Joanna Page (from TV's Gavin and Stacey) so be near Market Place at 5:30 pm. As soon as the lights have been admired there will be a firework display.

Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council provides the Christmas Lights display in the town centre. A large Christmas tree is erected by staff with contributions from loyal Monday Charter Market traders.

Abingdon-on-Thames Chamber of Commerce then undertakes a lot of the organisation of a Christmas Extravaganza to celebrate the switching on of the lights.

A traditional parade takes place at midday with live music which starts on Queen Street, then moves along Stert Street to East St Helen Street, through Lombard Street and back up West St Helen and the High Street to the Market Place.

There are entertainment and many attractions on the Market Place and in Bath Street all day. The day concludes with a final act on the stage in the Market Place followed by the switch-on of the Christmas Lights at 6:00 pm and fireworks.
