With a wonderful array of seasonal stalls for that special gift and a packed programme of festive entertainment, including marching bands, choirs and bell ringers, this event promises to get you in the mood for the forthcoming festivities.
With plenty of refreshments, including Bratwurst BBQ and Hog Roast, there is ample opportunity to soak up the atmosphere on Candy Cane Lane, as you relax with a mulled wine, warming hot chocolate, mince pie or sweet treat, while the kids have a play in the inflatable snow globe.
Those naughty elves are already busy preparing the ‘Elf Workshop’, where the little ones can enjoy a range of craft activities including decorating gingerbread, writing letters to Santa or face painting, and no Christmas Market would be complete without a visit to see Father Christmas!
Ryde Fire Station’s official Christmas Lights ‘switch on’ will take place at 16:00. The event is sponsored by Merry & Co Solicitors, Care at Home and RPL Construction.
The event takes place between 10:00-16:00 at Ryde Fire Station, Nicholson Road. With free entry and plenty of parking, there is fun for all the family!
Kathryn Grimes of The Wight Brainy Bunch says:
“We really love this event and work hard to ensure we create a truly magical atmosphere for all our guests, so it’s lovely to see so many of them return each year”.
The Wight Brainy Bunch was set up by Ryde Firefighter Mark Grimes and his wife, Kathryn, following his own diagnosis of a brain tumour in 2015. The charity now provide emotional support and financial assistance to dozens of other families on the Isle of Wight facing this devastating diagnosis.
