Santa's back with a bang

Aylesbury town centre’s popular Santa’s Sunday Spectacular returns to the town on Sunday 21 November to herald the start of Christmas.

The festive parade is made up of local dance groups, professional entertainers, bands and community groups. Previous years have seen more than 400 people taking part in the event and this time the invitation has been extended to any local business or organisation that wants to get involved.

The parade will leave late morning and after its finale, the event will continue with activities and street food throughout the town until 4.30pm, concluding with the Christmas tree light-up.

There will also be a range of street food, and the organising team would like to hear from vendors of Christmas treats, such as hot chestnuts and mulled wine.

Steve Bowles, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, said: ‘Our Aylesbury town centre team would love to hear from local businesses, non-profit groups, community groups, dance or theatrical groups or musicians to join the parade with free entry and/or have stall space in the town centre during the day.

‘This is a fantastic opportunity for people and groups to promote themselves and join in the festivities.’

Diana Fawcett, Aylesbury Town Centre and Regeneration Manager, said: ‘The Christmas parade is one of the most popular Aylesbury events and we’re so pleased we’re able to host it this year after sadly having to cancel the event in 2020.’

Organisations or businesses wishing to get involved and promote themselves in the parade or in the fun day afterwards should email Diana Fawcett on
