The festivities, which take place on and around the Green on Thursday 27 November from 6pm, promise plenty of family entertainment.

The sounds of a trio of choirs, Christmas trees sparkling in the historic church and mince pies and mulled wine in the quirky shops will make this year’s late night shopping event in Westerham one to remember.

The festivities, which take place on and around the Green on Thursday 27th November 2014 from 6pm, promise plenty of family entertainment. The soundtrack to the evening will be provided by the Churchill School, Westerham Local Vocals and the Rock Choir. In addition, there will be seasonal stalls, hot chestnuts and a visit by Father Christmas in a horse-drawn carriage. There is also the promise of a surprise visit from an ITV Breakfast Star to turn on Westerham’s Christmas Lights – don’t miss it!

That day will also see St Mary’s Westerham come alive with its annual Festival of Christmas Trees, which transforms the historic church into a veritable Christmas grotto. Local schools, businesses, clubs and societies, families and individuals contribute elegant, quirky or entertainingly decorated trees, lighting up the aisles.

Shops, as well as staying open late, will be packed with unusual gifts, special offers and festive fare. The schedule for the evening is as follows:

Free parking in the town from 5pm; Christmas Tree Festival open

6.15pm Churchill School Choir on The Green

6.25pm Celebrity guest arrives with Father Christmas by horse drawn carriage

6.30pm Celebrity guest speech & lights switched on
