Lots of festive activities are on the way in Falmouth with the Christmas lights being switched on by our Community Champion on the 25th of November.
Just a few days after the lights have been switched on The Christmas Tree Festival will be opening at the Princess Pavilion to really get us in the festive spirit, starting on the 27th and running until the 3rd of January you will be able to come to see a wonderful display right through the Christmas period.
The Grand Switch-on event for the Falmouth Christmas Tree Festival starts at 5:30 pm with the Marlborough School Choir singing on the bandstand, followed by the light switch-on by A&P apprentices, accompanied by The Mayor of Falmouth, Steve Eva, at 6 pm.
A free Carol Concert by St Stythians Brass Band in The Garden Room from 6.15 pm – 7.30 pm will complete the evening's entertainment with the bar open, serving drinks, mince pies, hot chocolate, and mulled cider.
Twenty-seven community groups from in and around Falmouth are each decorating a tree with the theme of 'Sleeping Beauty' to celebrate the return of Miracle Theatre to Princess Pavilion, with their pantomime of the same name.
The 'Tree of Wishes' will again be available for people to remember loved ones or make a wish for the future. All donations will go to the charity Sea Sanctuary, which is based in Penryn, and support people with their mental and emotional well-being using the setting of the sea.
As mentioned if you are unable to attend the switch on the trees will be open to view until 3rd January so you can still go and view the display.
