Rye Christmas Festival

About

Roll up, roll up! Saturday December the 8th sees the fourth Rye Christmas Festival come to town and it's set to be more bonkers than ever!

From 10:30am until late, throughout the town of Rye, you will be witness to all the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas, with an extra SPECTACULAR twist!

All of the regular faces and features will be there;
Father Christmas and his grotto, the reindeer, Mother Christmas, the procession, carol concert at St Mary's, pantomimes, fair rides, performances
and much more including extra characters and street performers to ensure that carnival atmosphere is spread throughout town.

Start off the day at The Strand Quay at 10:30 am to see Father Christmas arrive by boat, grab some grub from one of our specially picked
street vendors, pop in for a panto show or listen to our street buskers before heading in to warm up at the grotto or one of the many workshops.
