Our Christmas Festival will be filled with all the festival activities you could dream of! The festival will be taking place at One Church in Emsworth, on the surrounding fields.

There will be a variety of Christmas items and gifts on offer to purchase, and plenty of food stalls to enjoy. Festive music and festoon lights will add to the atmosphere around the festival. The space will be family-friendly and secure so you can relax into the Christmas spirit.

Entertainment will include award-winning Chichester-based entertainer and event producer, Dawn Gracie, who will be heading up the entertainment during the Christmas Festival. Known for her vibrant hosting and immersive performance stills, Dawn will be bringing a variety of acts to the stage to really help you soak up the Christmas atmosphere. Prepare for nostalgia aplenty and evening parties to really get you in the festive mood. 

Families will be able to visit Santa's Grotto, giving children an opportunity to ask Santa for the gifts they'd love. The Crazee Elf will be bringing Christmas joy around the festival.

A big part of Christmas is heart-warming, comfort food, so we’ve made sure to team up with British Event Catering to cover the Christmas classics and also provide some great food options across the festival ground. Vegetarians and vegans will, of course, be catered for, along with those with other dietary requirements.

Celebrate classic Christmas food and drink options including mince pies, spiced and mulled drinks, and luxury hot chocolates. There will also be a bar at the festival 'Bar Humbug' which will serve beer, cider, mulled wine, soft drinks and more!

Local merchants will be selling local cheese and other delicacies from across Hampshire and West Sussex. These items make for very special, thoughtful gifts. Some stalls will even provide samples, so make sure to come with an empty stomach!

If you’d like to sell your own food items at the festival, we’d love to hear from you.
