See Ashbourne come to life with sparkling Christmas Illuminations as the winner of our children's prize draw, accompanied by the Mayor of Ashbourne Cllr. Ann Smith and Santa Claus turn on the Christmas lights at 5:30 pm on Saturday 23rd November in the Market Place.
Entertainment will consist of festive music as darkness falls by Osmaston Wind Band. Gulliver's Mice will once again mingle with the crowds. There will be a Christmas themed Artisan & Crafters Market in the Main Hall of the Town Hall where hand crafted Christmas gift ideas are on offer. Our Visitor Information Centre will also remain open purveying charity Christmas cards and other gift ideas. The indoor market runs from 10.00am till 6.00pm.
