Lighting up Wyre this Christmas

Reindeer in Fleetwood

Christmas is nearly upon us and to kick off the celebrations we’ve put together a round-up of all the Christmas events taking place in Wyre this November and December.

From Santa's Grotto, to Christmas markets, pantomimes, light switch ons, Christmas fairs and much more, there's plenty of reasons to get in the festive mood!

Fleetwood's Marine Hall is hosting performances of Nativity! The Musical this November and a special pantomime 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' in December. It is also home to its annual Festive Fayre on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 November. The hall will be filled with delicious festive food and drinks, Christmas crafts, gifts and more. To get you in the festive spirit you'll also find carol singing, an elf on the shelf trail and hilarious walkabout acts, including The Brussels' Sprouts.

Fleetwood town will light up on Saturday 25 November with a lantern parade and Christmas concert, kicking off at 4:30pm on Ash Street. 

Fleetwood's festive AR trail will be available to enjoy from Saturday 25 November. Players can use their phone to follow the Christmas trail story by scanning the QR code on snowflake markers found at various locations across the town, launch a different AR challenge at each location and collect something at every stop. With an original story, bespoke illustration and a uniquely Fleetwood feel, it’s a great way to try something a little different this festive season.
