Winchcombe Christmas Festival
Winter wonderland welcomes you in Winchcombe
Winchcombe’s annual Christmas Festival returns on Tuesday 6th December when the picturesque ancient town’s independent shops, galleries and restaurants throw open their doors in a warm festive welcome to all.
The late night Christmas shopping evening is becoming an increasingly popular Cotswold Christmas tradition, with the town beautifully lit up with sparkling Christmas trees giving a truly festive experience for all the family.
The family friendly festive fun takes place between 5 and 8pm, offering an early Christmas treat for families, shoppers and foodies alike.
With live music entertainment, festive food and gift stalls from a variety of Cotswold craft traders who descend on the town in a one off Cotswold Christmas market, it is one of the biggest events in the Winchcombe calendar.
Last year over 2,000 people attended the community celebrations to mark the Christmas season and support local businesses and traders.
For the music lovers there will be festive music from choirs, singers and primary school performers as well children’s entertainment, Morris dancing and live radio broadcasts on Radio Winchcombe throughout the evening.
For those looking to tick off some items on their Christmas shopping list there will be over 40 stalls on North Street and Abbey Terrace offering local food and produce, jewellery, local crafts, arts and decorations galore.
For foodies the town’s popular pubs and cafes will be open serving up something festive and delicious including mulled wine and festive sweet and savoury treats.
Father Christmas will be the guest of honour in his special Grotto in the town’s Guide Hall, supported by Winchcombe Rotary Club and a team of happy Elves.
Angela Teasdale from Emporium on Winchcombe’s North Street is organising the festival this year. She said, “Winchcombe is a beautiful working town rich in Cotswold history and heritage. The festival is all about opening our doors, welcoming everyone in to share what we have to offer. It just captures the real meaning of Christmas. The event is organised by a team of volunteers from local businesses and residents to put something on for the local community to celebrate our town, and the local community responds by turning out in force to enjoy the Christmas celebrations with us.”

Vegan for November
Jennie Davis is currently working as a residential carer and recently had support from Kate's. She has described them as a wonderful palliative team based in Stow on the Wold and wrote the following:
They were my baseline and main contact when I looked after a client who died. They were absolutely amazing in their support, nothing was too trivial to ask. Their team was set up by a lady called Kate who needed palliative care, Their staff are fantastic. I intend to go vegan for November in support of their team; any donation will be greatly received and sent to them. I enjoy cheddar cheese, milk in tea and yogurt and I think soya cheese and yogurts are pretty awful, so this won't be particularly easy. I'm hoping to raise for £10 a day over 30 days towards Kate's palliative team funds. 'Vegan for November' is a World initiative.â€‹
Jennies, Virgin Giving page is shown above should you wish to support her intitiative.
