Christmas in Hemel starts on Saturday 20 November with a Christmas light event.

Organised by the Hemel Hempstead Business Improvement District, entertainment will be spread along the length of the town centre and in Bank Court throughout the day to minimise crowds gathering in one place and giving you plenty of opportunity to see the fun.

There will be children’s interactive shows, arts and crafts in the Dacorum Creatives hub, walkabout acts, a balloon modeller, LED shows after dark and the Made in Hemel Pop-Up Market.

The Marlowes Shopping Centre is also running an Artic Adventure themed Grotto where you can meet Father Christmas. All donations for tickets go to local charity DENS. 

At the grand finale will be lights and a pyrotechnic display!

The Tring Christmas Festival, organised by Tring Together, is on Saturday 27 November from 3 – 8pm. Enjoy Christmas market stalls, late night shopping, festive lights, entertainment and an appearance by Father Christmas.
