Handy Summary of Events and dates
A reminder of the main event….
As we previously revealed, visitors will enter the glowing light trail via the Mistletoe Market – a Christmas Market brimming with Chalets filled with hand-crafted and unique Christmas gifts, tipples and treats, including a special offering from local legend Tom Kerridge. Mid-way through the trail, visitors will then encounter the Winter Village, where the sounds of choirs and musicians performing live carols and classic Christmas songs will fill the air, alongside firepits, pop-up bars, gourmet food trucks and a mini fairground. As the journey continues, they can visit the Elves Workshop, where children can help the jolly band of elves from the National Elf Service with their preparations for the big day.
Event Organisers, Brand Events, are also the people behind Pub in the Park.
Managing Director, Miranda Martin, says of the festival: “We are thrilled to reveal the full range of experiences on offer and our programme of events which will give people a fantastic new way to celebrate the festive season with their friends and family this December in the beautiful setting of Marlow”.”
“Christmas in the Park has been made possible with the support of Buckinghamshire Council and Marlow Town Council, who have been very supportive of the staging of the event for the whole town and surrounding area.”
