Starlight the Polar Bear puts in special guest appearance at Hampton Hill Christmas Event!
With December fast approaching there is a slightly frenzied feel about the air this year. We are racing to put up trees and decorations early, encouraged by the shop displays that were put out before Halloween!
Everyone is so busy: buying presents for loved ones; making plans to see family and friends and
booking events to get us into the Christmas spirit. In the local boroughs we are spoilt for choice, with festive events in Twickenham, Teddington, East Molesey and Hampton Hill!
The variety of events is particularly impressive this year with such delights as Wreath Making at Marble Hill Park, Winter Shire Horse Carriage Rides at Richmond Park and the highly-anticipated ice skating rink at Hampton Court Palace.
Our own Hampton Hill Christmas Event will take place on Saturday 27th November from 12-4:30pm at the square between Tesco and Clarence House.
The event will include:
Official naming of The Square with Richmond Borough Mayor attending to unveil
Live music, including Christmas Carols
Stalls- including art, jewellery, gifts, food and lots more
Children’s entertainment from Crafty Tales
Tombola- including lots of prizes from businesses on the High Street
Christmas Post Box for children to post their letters to Santa
Main Christmas Tree Light switch on at 4:30pm
And lots more….
To top it all off Starlight the Polar Bear will be taking a break, from rehearsing Ellie and Starlight’s Christmas Adventure at Hampton Hill Theatre, to assist the Mayor of Richmond with turning on the Christmas tree lights at 4:30pm.
We feel blessed that actor Peter F. Gardiner has agreed to reprise the role of Starlight the Polar
Bear, bringing his usual mixture of humour and warmth with him.
If you were lucky enough to see Dramacube’s 2019 production of Ellie and Starlight the Musical, you’ll know to keep your wits about you, as he is one cheeky bear!!
You can join Starlight and his best friend Ellie at this year’s Christmas show which runs from 20th to Christmas Eve at Hampton Hill Theatre. Click here for more information.
