The Aylesbury Town Centre Partnership is delighted to announce the return of Santa's Sunday Fun Day, which takes place on Sunday 26 November. This is a family favourite with a parade launching the day-long festivities.
This year, Santa will be joined by two unicorns pulling a beautiful carriage with Cinderella and Snow White aboard, jumping elves, Betty Twinkle, a fairy in a cage carried by a gorilla, real donkeys, a samba band, a marching band and a colourful array of music and dance groups.
The parade of characters and local groups will sing and dance their way through the town from 10.45am, starting from the Upper High Street by Hale Leys Shopping Centre and making their way into Market Square. After the parade, there will be a range of entertainment, including go-karts, a small funfair, donkey rides for the kids, a small eco-farm and an array of street food until 3pm.
Additionally, the ever-popular Santa’s Dash will start from Kingsbury at 9am and make its way through town. People wanting to join this worthwhile event should email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, booking forms are available from Dead Universe Comics, Bourbon Street, Aylesbury or the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity, Walton Street, Aylesbury.
Aylesbury Town Centre Manager, Diana Fawcett, said: “There is a wide range of Christmas activities in Aylesbury town across November and December, both for families and for shoppers. And the Aylesbury Town Centre Partnership is thrilled to be hosting these enormously popular festive events.”
Visitors are encouraged to start their Christmas shopping on the day too, with the town hosting an array of national and independent shops.
Shoppers will be able to park for free after 4.30pm on Thursdays in AVDC town centre car parks in Aylesbury between 7 December and 21 December.
