The town is getting into festive mood to ensure visitors and locals have the best season ever.

Woodbridge Mammoth Christmas Street FairWoodbridge Mammoth Christmas Street Fair

Woodbridge is gearing up for this year’s Christmas festivities. Events include numerous visits from Santa, the mammoth Christmas Street Fair and a community Christmas carol service on Market Hill.

On November 20, Santa will be at Notcutts Garden Centre to open his grotto and families can visit every weekend in the lead up to Christmas. Santa is working with The Rotary Club of Woodbridge to raise money for local charities. Visit Notcutts’ website for more details and to book a special breakfast with Santa.

Saturday December 3 will see Small Business Saturday in Woodbridge, and on Sunday December 4 the mammoth Christmas Street Fair will make Woodbridge a bustling hive of activity, as stalls line the Thoroughfare and Cumberland Street selling a range of seasonal gifts and produce.

On Thursday December 1, Deben Rotary Club hosts its annual carol service and supper at Woodbridge School. After that the Rotary Club of Woodbridge hosts its annual carol service on Market Hill on Wednesday December 21 at 6.45pm. Everyone is welcome. There will be collecting buckets in support of Rotary charities. Woodbridge Violin Shop, 26 Market Hill, will be selling Christmas lanterns throughout December to add some festive glow to the occasion.

In addition to this, Choose Woodbridge will be holding a Countdown to Christmas with Town 102’s Nick Pandolfi speaking to ten diverse personalities around Woodbridge.
