Christchurch Christmas Festival Success


People in their thousands flocked to Christchurch in beautiful winter weather for the annual Christmas Festival, with the later lights switch-on giving more time for Christmas shopping.

Due to concerns of overcrowding in previous years, this year Father Christmas and his reindeer paraded down the High Street at 4.30 with the Christmas lights switch-on taking place at 6pm.

Panto stars from Bournemouth Pavilion’s production of Aladdin – Scott Maslen, Chris Jarvis and Bobby Crush – joined Heart FM’s Zoe Hanson and the Mayor of Christchurch, Cllr John Lofts, for the countdown to the switch-on from the Mayor’s Parlour.
