Christmas in Fareham 2022

Saturday 19th November 10am - 7pm on West Street, Fareham Town Centre

A huge thank you to the thousands of Fareham residents who attended the Christmas Lights Switch On event on Saturday 19 November at West Street!

There was something for everyone, with face painting, fun fair rides, festive gift stalls, delicious food and drink and activities all day. The Grinch made some mischief in Fareham Shopping Centre and Father Christmas himself also made an appearance.

There were street entertainers delighting the crowds throughout the day, non-stop performances on the main stage and the crowd cheered as the Christmas lights were switched on by the Mayor and Mayoress of Fareham, Father Christmas and even the Sugar Plum Fairy. The whole event was concluded with a very special Nutcracker themed finale show.

The Council also launched its Nutcracker Trail for children, and you can find details of how to get involved in this using the button below.

A special thanks goes to our event sponsors: The Agency UK, M Coghlan funeral directors and Fareham Shopping Centre for making our street entertainers, Christmas tree and Nutcracker Trail possible.

Now that the Christmas lights are shining, help support your local businesses by completing your Christmas shopping in Fareham!
