Witham Christmas Fayre

4 Dec 2023

Christmas Fayre is a Resounding Success!

Witham Town Council is delighted to announce the resounding success of the Witham Christmas Fayre 2023 that took place on Saturday, 2nd December. This year saw an increase in the size of the event with stalls along Newland Street, within the United Reformed Church, and both the Newlands and Grove Shopping Centre.

The festivities commenced with a traditional Church Carol Service held in the Grove Shopping Centre at 2pm, setting the stage for the afternoon. The event reached its pinnacle with the Christmas light switch-on at 6pm.

The Witham Christmas Fayre showcased an array of stalls offering unique and locally crafted goods, alongside a selection of festive food and drink. The main stage featured live performers, while the 'Crafters' Corner' within the United Reformed Church provided a haven for those seeking one-of-a-kind handmade gifts. Many local shops and businesses chose to stay open late to capitalise on the increased footfall in the town which also contributed to the atmosphere of this event.

Some families had the opportunity to meet Santa Claus in his Grotto in the Town Hall and receive a special gift while the Grove Shopping Centre played host to live reindeer, Blitzen and Steve.

Witham Town Council would like to express its sincere gratitude to all who attended and participated in the Witham Christmas Fayre 2023 and to its sponsors, Holmes & Hills Solicitors and the Grove Shopping Centre. Our thanks also go to the Witham Community Hub for providing the PA system for the Carol Service.

Councillor Phil Barlow, Leader of Witham Town Council said “Witham Town Council has held several Christmas events, such as the Dickensian and Cockney Market but we feel that this has been our most successful to date. By working with local businesses to include a larger area than last year we have been able to ensure the whole of the town centre benefit from the Christmas Fayre. We look forward to continuing this free event next year for the residents of Witham”.
