Abingdon Christmas Extravaganza 2020
The Abingdon Christmas Extravaganza 2020 is scheduled to take place on 27 November 2020 to kick-off the festive season in Abingdon.
Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council will provide the Christmas Lights display in the town centre. A large Christmas tree will be erected by staff with contrubution from loyal Monday Charter Market traders. Abingdon-on-Thames Chamber of Commerce then undertake a lot of the organisation of a Christmas Extravaganza to celebrate the switching on of the lights.
In previous years, 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 is also entertainment and many attractions on the Market Place and in Bath Street all day, with the day concluding 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.
In 2020, planned events for the day may have to be altered in line with Government guidance on size of gatherings.
Attractions on the Market Place and in Bath Street and a finale act on the stage in the Market Place followed by the switch on of the Christmas Lights at 6pm and fireworks will all be adapted if there is Government guidance on size of gatherings.
