Description

Cheadle High Street is to host its first ever Living Nativity. Actors, singers and more will process towards the Market Square acting out the famous Christmas story. This is to take place as part of the town’s annual Christmas Light’s Switch-on celebration and provides the event with this year’s theme. Shop windows will be dressed and visitors are encouraged to dress as someone who may have witnessed the nativity.

This popular event takes place on Saturday 25th of November and will include a carefully selected Christmas Market, Street Entertainment and Traditional Fairground Rides. Santa will be greeting youngsters in his specially constructed grotto at the top of the Market Place. There will be a traditional Punch & Judy, Swing Boat Rides and even a Fire Eater in attendance.

New for this year are Busk Stops along the route where singers and family entertainers are encouraged to showcase their talent. Local businesses will be getting involved hosting their own brand of Christmas Cheer with special offers and mini events throughout the season and particularly on the day. The Discovery Centre in Lulworth House, will be exhibiting “Toys through the Ages” bringing a touch of nostalgia to our historic town.

Also new for this year is the Angel Selfie Program, visitors before and on the 25th are encouraged to visit local businesses and groups taking part, take a “selfie” with the specially designed angel and post it on the Team Cheadle Facebook page. Prizes will be awarded for the most popular picture. Details of how to get involved and what’s on are also on the Facebook Page.

The High Street at the junction with Cross Street will be closed from 12 noon and festivities will run from 2-6 pm with the High Street re-opening at 7pm. Car Parking will be free for 3 hours on the Tape Street Car Park.

The Christmas Lights will be switched on at 5 pm by Town Mayor Phil Routledge and competition prizes will be handed out by our Elsa lookalike who will also entertain the crowds.
