Boston Christmas Market and Illuminate Parade to return

Boston Christmas Market and Illuminate Parade is returning again this year to Boston Town Centre.

Starting on Thursday 24 November at noon, there will be a Christmas Market in the Market Place which will consist of Christmas-themed market stalls, food stalls and small children’s rides available for people to browse at their leisure through until 8pm. There will be outdoor entertainment with a street organist, singers, performers, elves, snow globe, stilt walkers and more.

From 4pm onwards there will be street and pop-up entertainment throughout the town with Transported Arts undertaking the ‘Illuminate Parade’ on the theme of ‘осветявам’ – Bulgarian for Illuminate – from 5.30pm, and in the form of trails around the town centre throughout the duration of the event.

In addition St Botolph’s Church will also be bringing you some indoor festive entertainment from noon with a Christmas music and song extravaganza, Christmas arts and crafts, Christmas trails, Christmas selfie photo opportunities, fun giant games and a face painter, with the return of the ever popular Reindeer located outside on the Church grounds from 4pm until 8pm.

Cllr Tracey Abbott, portfolio holder for town centre, said: “It has been a tough few years for everyone and we are once again delighted to be able to bring some Christmas spirit to the town. There is some great entertainment lined up for our residents and visitors and I do hope that everyone can pop along and get into the Christmas spirit.

“We also have a new Christmas tree coming to town which will shine throughout the festive period and into the New Year.”
