All New Christmas Festival
Hemel Hempstead’s popular Christmas event is back this year, with free festive fun on Saturday 30 November 2019.
We’ve organised the All New Christmas Festival with Hemel Hempstead Business Improvement District (BID), Riverside Shopping Centre, Marlowes Shopping Centre and Saunders Markets.
The revamped event takes place in the town centre from 11am to 7pm.
Starting at 11am, activities include a giant snow globe, train rides, snow slope, climbing wall, go karts, toboggan slide, under-six rides and a festive market.
The rock choir will kickstart the live entertainment on the Rainbow Stage at 1pm, followed by a pantomime performance.
The light switch-on takes place at 5pm, with a firework display at 5.15pm.
