Christmas on the Hill moves into new era
Published on: 27 Oct 2017
STAPLE Hill will be holding the annual Christmas on the Hill celebration on Saturday December 2 with events and activities around the High Street throughout the day.
Although this will be the first year without a parade, there will be more to see and do than ever.There will be a wide variety of activities along the pavements, around the shops and in community buildings around the High Street and Broad Street.
Organisers are looking forwarding to welcoming the authentically-costumed characters from Star Wars as the UK Garrison makes a popular return and the ever exciting Circomedia will be wowing the crowds with their circus skills.
BBC Radio Bristol will be joining in with the fun and many community groups will be around to explain more about the work being done to make Staple Hill a great place to live.
There will be entertainment, stalls and demonstrations in the Salvation Army, Methodist Church and the You Foundation, with a children’s party being held in the Sanctuary Church.
The afternoon will traditionally come to an end in Fountain Square when the community joins together for carols with the local Salvation Army Band.
Programmes, on sale from local shops, give entry to the annual treasure hunt with prizes donated by Staple Hill traders.
Organisers are busy fundraising to ensure they have a Christmas tree that everyone can appreciate. They are also looking for volunteers who would like to get involved on the day. If you can help please call Ian on 01454 864077.
