Christmas in Fareham 2020

Unfortunately, like many events this year, the Christmas lights switch on event in Fareham has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the current Government restrictions.

Whilst there will be no public event this year, the Christmas lights in the town centre will still be switched on and will stay on throughout December. The lights will be on from Monday 23rd November, so those visiting Fareham for essential purposes throughout the lockdown will be able enjoy them.

Hopefully, once the national lockdown ends, and shops are able to re-open (from 3 December subject to any further restrictions), everyone will have the opportunity to enjoy the festive lights.

Check back here for further updates!

Fareham's Virtual Christmas Market 2020

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, unfortunately the usual festive Town Centre celebrations cannot take place this year; however to kick start the Christmas spirit you can see the celebrations that took place last year by following this You Tube link. External Hyperlink

Instead, we have created a virtual Christmas Market where you can still take a look at some of the stall holders and local businesses that would have come along to our Christmas market to help you continue your festive shopping throughout December.

If you are a local business and would like to be added to the Virtual Christmas market please email the name of your business, what you sell, a link to your website and a photo of your products to
