There will also be a small Christmas Market with stalls offering a range of street food, festive treats and stocking fillers from local artisan traders.
Free fun for the family!

Get into the Festive Spirit with The Walton Village
Dog Charity Photoshoot
The Walton Village
The Walton Village are hosting a doggy charity photoshoot, raising funds for Crisis. For just £5, the exceptional Tania Naneva will snap your pooch and send you digital copies of the best five shots!
All the cash will go straight to Crisis who work tirelessly throughout the year to help end homelessness. This is especially important at this time of year when the most vulnerable in our society need warmth, shelter and love.
Pop on down with your pupper and get some lovely doggy snaps while helping those who need it most.
Festive Drinks & Tap Takeover
The Walton Village
Getting us all into the Christmas Spirit, The Walton Village have got some special treats lined up!
Local craft brewery Siren will be taking over 6 beer lines and showcasing their world-class award-winning beers for the weekend.
Plus, from the front of the pub the team will have their “Hot Stuff” stand, serving up warming mulled wine and delicious hot chocolates. Perfect while you stand and watch the entertainment on the stage opposite! (And yes, you can top up your hot chocolate with a boozy kick if you want to 😉)

Please note, this event is taking place instead of the Festival of Light this year. We want everyone to feel safe this Christmas and given the large crowds involved and ongoing concerns around the coronavirus pandemic, we have taken the difficult decision to not go ahead with the usual Festival of Light parade. We hope to bring it back to its full glory in 2022, but in the meantime, we hope you’ll join us for lots of festive fun in Walton this Christmas.
