Bembridge celebrates Christmas

If you are lucky enough to be on the Isle of Wight for the Christmas season, you're in for an exciting time.

Get in on the Christmas magic with a visit to Bembridge, which is getting all dressed up on December 21st for its annual carnival - featuring markets, Santa Claus and as much carol sinning as you can handle.

One of the joys of experiencing the holiday season on the island is that you get to experience an authentic rural community spirit. The fun kicks off in the village centre, where everyone from the local area will be gathering from 11am.

Santa Claus will, of course, be in attendance from the start of the day, so if you have children, take them along to his grotto where they will receive their very first present for this year - a whole four days before December 25th!

There will also be a brass band and carol singers playing until 12:30, at which point they will head off on a tour around Bembridge until they arrive at Steyne Park at 3pm.

But you don't have to wait until then to enjoy what the park has to offer, with festive activities, entertainment and food stalls open for business within its boundaries from 2pm.

If you're struggling with a bit of Christmas shopping, pick up something unique and wonderful from the market that will be operating within the Bembridge Youth and Community Centre (BYCC) from 2pm until 6pm.

Every stallholder will be from the local area, and with a plethora of well-crafted and carefully created presents and decorations on offer, you can be certain of taking back a genuine piece of the Isle of Wight to remind you of your holiday.

Everything will wrap up well before bedtime, so don't be afraid to take the kids along to this fantastic day out.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801667156-ADNFCR
