Cuckfield Christmas Street Festival - Fri 8th December 2017

Cuckfield Christmas Street Festival 2017

Cuckfield Christmas Street Festival is a popular event in the village that attracts hundreds of visitors each year who enjoy the true spirit of Christmas, coming together and having fun.

The event on Friday 8th December, starting at 6pm, is organised by Cuckfield Parish Council for the community and coincides with the opening of Holy Trinity’s Christmas Tree Festival. Cuckfield High Street will be closed to traffic for the event and will be managed by marshals, the event finishes at 8pm and the road reopens at 8.30pm.

The High Street is lined with stalls, shops are open and festive music from Mid Downs Radio fills the air. 

There will be street entertainment and carols sung by Cuckfield Baptist Church. Evolution Brass Band kick off proceedings with Christmas cheer followed by the opening address of our newly-elected Mayor, Evelyn Stenning. The craft fair will be located in the Old School next to Holy Trinity Church.

This is also a time for our children to join in and there will be a fancy dress competition. Father Christmas will be there, in his grotto, near the Talbot.
