Christmas in Berkshire

Berkshire has some great events lined up for Christmas this year including the Great Woodley Extravaganza on Sunday 7th December.  In its 18th year, Santa will arrive with his reindeer and greet children with a free gift in his Magical Den.  Entertainment from local dance groups, choirs, jugglers and clowns throughout the day, along with a climbing wall, roundabout rides, bouncy castle and a big Ferris wheel, will keep children fully entertained, for more information visit the Woodley Town Centre website.

For those of you who want to step back in time, Hungerford’s Victorian Extravaganza is being held on 12th December.  All the shops are adorned with Victorian style decorations and the shop keepers are dressed in keeping with the era.  Steam engines, organs punch and Judy shows, stilt walkers and side stalls are just part of the entertainment on offer.  Fairground rides, a big wheel and street entertainment is in abundance accompanied by the Hungerford Town Band and Scottish Pipe Bands. At 7pm the annual Grand Parade begins and children get the chance to see Father Christmas again. Prize giving for the best dressed shops, assistants and stall holders follows; and the event’s finale is an awesome firework display at 9pm, truly worth a visit.

Give your children the experience of Lapland at LaplandUK which returns again this year to Whitmoor Forest, Windsor.  Open from 29th November until Christmas Eve, it has received international acclaim.  Your child will receive a personal invitation from Santa asking for their help in his toy factory, travelling through the Elves magical forest with their special passports, they travel through the snowy backdrop to arrive at his Toy Factory to help the Elves.  Mother Christmas then arrives and takes them to her kitchen for help decorating gingerbread whilst reciting Christmas tales.  A visit to Lapland’s ice rink follows to meet the huskies and reindeer before their very own personal meeting with Father Christmas.  A visit you and your young child will treasure forever.  For more information visit Lapland website.

And whilst you are thinking about your Christmas festivities, the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel offers a traditional Christmas dinner with Champagne and canapés on arrival, a four course meal, coffee and mince pies.  Father Christmas is on hand to give out one last extra special gift to our young visitors, and live entertainment will keep the whole family entertained throughout the day.  Book early on 01753 202825 or at [email protected].
