Datchet Candle Light Procession, 2017
2 December, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 7:30 pm
A candle light procession is a lovely way to get into the festive spirit and is just one of the Christmas activities happening in Datchet on 2nd December 2017.
The day starts with the St.Nicholas Fayre at St.Mary’s Church from 12.30pm to 3pm. Come and enjoy a traditional Christmas bazaar for all the family. Buy Christmas gifts and decorations, have a go or two on the bottle stall and tombola, visit Santa in his grotto, browse the beautiful selection of secondhand designer clothes, bric-a-brac,… read more and books stalls, be tempted by the yummy cake stall, and try some delicious food at the Christmas cafe which will be serving lunch and afternoon tea. There’s so much to do, and don’t forget the St.Mary’s Grand Christmas Raffle too – there are lots of fabulous prizes to be won so make sure you buy some tickets.
From 3pm Father Christmas will be hosting tea at St.Mary’s Church. Come and tell him what you want for Christmas and have a slice of cake!
The Family Advent Carol Service with Marlow Town Band will start at 4pm. Come and sing with the choirs of St.Mary’s Church, St.Mary’s Primary Academy and Eton End School. Churchmead Church of England School will also be performing Advent readings along with representation from other organisations in the village.
A candlelit procession from the church will follow the service and that’s when the festivities will start on The Green.
Join us for more carols by candlelight with Marlow Town Band, and more Christmas songs from St.Mary’s Primary Academy and Eton End School. Enjoy food and drink from local businesses and organisations as we switch on our Christmas tree lights. And after all that, you can browse the Christmas gift stalls, go and visit Father Christmas in his grotto, have your face painted, and maybe enjoy a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie. Lots of Christmassy fun for everyone to enjoy! We’ll start on The Green at 5pm and be finished by 7.30pm.
