The Christmas Countdown is well underway at the Town Council with plans for a whole weekend of great events for the whole family on 2-3rd December. Market stalls selling arts, crafts and locally sourced food and drink will stretch from the Town Hall to the Market Square. The fun will continue right through to 8pm on Saturday evening and from 10 till 4 on Sunday with shops able to open throughout each day for all that all-important Christmas shopping.

Traditional entertainments are planned in the Market Square and close by.   The Town Council is very keen for as many Community Groups and local people as possible to bring their skills and talents to share and celebrate Christmas together. The Town’s Christmas Tree will be right in the centre of the Market Square with space nearby for performances and carol singing. The Christmas Light Switch-On is timed for early evening on Saturday.

If you would like to run a stall, put on a performance or have a bright idea and want to be part of Dover’s Community Christmas celebrations please get in touch by phone on 01304 242625, by email to council@dovertowncouncil.gov.uk or by calling in to our offices at Maison Dieu House next to the Town Hall.
