Christmas comes to town

Mayor Cllr Rosie Sutton with stilt walkers at the Christmas Live @ Hemel Hempstead eventChristmas came to Hemel Hempstead on Sunday (25 November) as residents got in the festive spirit at our annual light switch-on event.

DJ Kentastic kicked off the party on the Rainbow Stage with live music and games. There was a mini snow slope provided by the Snow Centre, climbing wall activities courtesy of Phasels Wood and the chance to try out winter sports such as curling.

Young entrepreneurs from Dacorum schools were also there raising money for local charities as part of the Connect Dacorum Dragon’s Apprentice Challenge. The challenge matches budding young business minds with business mentors and local charities to develop and encourage business-related skills.

The event finished with a fantastic firework display.
