On Saturday 2 December Beckenham Town Centre will be hosting its annual Christmas Market on the Green and a candlelit parade.
Christmas on the Green, including entertainment on stage, is organised by Copers Cope Area Residents’ Association, and starts at midday. The candlelit parade, organised by Beckenham Business Association, gathers at Croydon Road Recreation Ground at 4pm, ready to leave by 4:30pm and finishes at Beckenham Green for the Christmas lights switch on at 5pm.
Father Christmas will be there, helped by his little elves who’ll be handing out Christmas gifts (with thanks to F M Conway and their float) along the route. Leaving from Croydon Road Recreational Ground at 4.30pm, the route goes along Croydon Road and through Beckenham High Street, with lots of singing and fun along the way. It culminates on Beckenham Green for the official turning on of the Christmas Lights and Carol singing at 5pm. There will be pretty Christmas (battery) lights for the children, entertainment, bands and lots more fun for all the family.
This is a great opportunity for businesses to promote themselves along the route. If you would like to take part in this event in some way, please let us know, so that we can promote and help you with this.
