* NEW EVENT * Christmas in the Park

| |

MyMarlow is really excited to announce a NEW Christmas event for Marlow, brought to us by the same team as Pub in the Park, so expect something BIG and SPECIAL!!

From 9-21 December Higginson Park in Marlow will be transformed into a yuletide festival that will light up the night sky. Here’s what you need to know about Christmas in the Park, including how to get tickets – it sounds amazing:

An illuminating light trail featuring festive-themed installations will be the centrepiece of the event, featuring light tunnels, photo opportunities to capture memories and interactive surprises.

Visitors will enter via the Mistletoe Market – a Christmas Market – brimming with Chalets filled with hand-crafted and unique Christmas gifts, tipples and treats from hot toddies and roasted chestnuts to cheese boards and marshmallow-topped hot chocolate. Amongst these delicious treats, will be a special offering from local legend Tom Kerridge.

Mid-way through the trail, visitors will encounter the Winter Village, where the sounds of choirs and musicians performing live carols and classic Christmas songs will fill the air. Here you’ll find firepits, pop-up bars and festive food from a hand-picked selection of gourmet street food trucks. And for the young, and young at heart, there will be a mini fairground.

As visitors journey through the woods, 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.


Check out the map we have been sent – really shows the scale of it all!

And there’s more….

This 12-day celebration will also have a number of additional ticketed events taking place on selected dates, in and around, Higginson Park:

  • Classic Christmas Movies – Grab a box of popcorn and enjoy everyone’s favourite festive flicks in the indoor pop-up cinema
  • Family Pantomimes – Catch pantomime performances suitable for all ages in our indoor pop-up theatre
  • Feasting Experiences – A special winter banquet experience in a covered outdoor setting
  • Party Nights – A curated party night experience for groups of adults, including entry to the event

Event Organisers, Brand Events, are also the people behind the annual Pub in the Park festival.

Managing Director, Miranda Martin, says of the festival: “We want to bring the people of Marlow, and further afield, together to celebrate the magic of Christmas with friends and family.”

“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.”

The event is also proud to be supporting the Marlow Mayors charity, focusing on Childrens Mental Health.

NOTE: Marlow’s traditional Carols on the causeway will be on the 14th December this year when Christmas in the park is not running.
