town centre plans for Christmas 'Frostival' unveiled
Town Council will be helping to make the town centre more festive
this year by offering a free LED lantern to businesses and households
- and promoting Christmas events under a 'Frostival' theme.
LED lanterns will be given to shops and businesses in the town
centre to be placed in their front windows over the Christmas
period in a bid to make Burnham more festive.
council is also planning to promote Christmas across Burnham as
a 'Frostival' this year and to publish a leaflet featuring the
dates and times of festive events such as public fairs, concerts
festive celebrations begin with Burnham's Christmas lights switch-on
on Saturday 21st November, organised by the Chamber of Trade.
wide range of street entertainment is being planned for every
weekend in the run-up to Christmas, including giant roller skating
baubles, brass bands, lost elves, carollers, stilt walkers and
several other surprises too.
is a simple plan to bring all the town centre together over the
festive period by lighting up the hundreds of windows; on the
main streets but also on the side streets too. I hope that everyone
will say yes to being a part of lighting up the town every evening,"
said Town Centre Manager Bev Milner Simonds.
event organisers have sent in their plans for the season already
and a great calendar of concerts, fairs and services is planned.
If you have a booking for a venue, a concert or a public party
planned please do let me know so it can be publicised as widely
added: "We have had a great response to the lanterns with
many businesses and residents signing up within hours of getting
the letters. We want to get the Frostival guide out to residents
and to the surrounding towns and villages to encourage people
to spend time locally this Christmas."
