Celebrate Christmas in Whippingham

It's not difficult to find a really excellent Christmas event on the Isle of Wight this December, with plenty going on from Ryde and Sandown to Shanklin and Cowes. With such a community spirit present on the island, it'll be a special experience wherever you choose to go.

However, if you're in the vicinity of Whippingham on December 11th, it's definitely worth popping along to the community hall, where the locals will be putting on a bit of an extravaganza with the help of the nearby drama school.

The event is being held by the Whippingham Community Association with the aim of raising funds for Age UK on the Isle of Wight, so as well as enjoying some fine festive entertainment, you'll also be contributing to a very noble cause.

While the mince pies and mulled wine on offer will carry a charge, every effort has been made to make this an open community event that anyone can enjoy, so it won't cost you a penny to pop along and enjoy the performance courtesy of the Centre Stage School.

As well as carols, readings, music and song presented by the students, there will be a number of colourful and talented local personalities. So you can say you've really experienced something more than just the tourist attractions of the Isle of Wight.

The fun gets started at 7pm, although folks are welcome to turn up earlier. Tickets are obtainable on the day from Whippingham Post Office on Alverstone Road, or Age UK's office at 147 High Street in Newport.

If you're interested in watching this community event, be aware you can easily catch a ferry to the Isle of Wight from Southampton to Cowes, which is just a short journey from Whippingham by car.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801667157-ADNFCR
