Fun filled festive week of activities

Published on Tuesday, 11th October 2016

Another exciting programme of festive events has been organised for Nuneaton and Bedworth in the run up to the busy Christmas period.

A comprehensive programme of live music, street entertainment and funfair attractions will once again form the basis of the celebrations.

The events will bring thousands of families and shoppers into the borough during what will be a fun filled festive week.

Nuneaton Christmas Light Switch On will be on November 20, Bulkington on the November 22 and finally Bedworth in association with the annual Folk Festival will be on November 26. 

Christmas Markets will be held in Nuneaton on December 22 and 23 and Bedworth on December 22.

This year The Civic Hall Pantomime Company will be performing Cinderella. Plans for the show are well underway and the opening night is set for December 3 at 7pm. 

Tickets are on sale now from the box office on 02476 376707.

The pantomime cast will be at both Bulkington and Bedworth Christmas lights switch-on giving a taster of what is to come with songs from the show.

“This year we have taken the decision to consolidate our Christmas Programme into one week starting in Nuneaton on November 20 running through until the following Sunday, which also the final day of the annual Bedworth Folk Festival.

“The festive season is a very important time of year for our retailers, market traders and charity organisations and we as a Council are fully committed  to working alongside our partners to ensure that 2016 will be a year to remember. 

“The Christmas lights are in the process of being tested and the ever popular firework displays,  which form the climax of the evenings activities in Nuneaton and Bedworth, will once again delight the crowds who always support us in their thousands.

“I am also pleased that we will be once again supported by the Showman’s Guild who will be providing a range of children’s rides and stalls for everyone to enjoy.”

Dennis Harvey, Leader of Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council
