  • Christmas Lights – The Big Switch-On
    27th November 2021

    The 2021 Christmas Lights Big Switch-On event will begin at 3.30pm on Saturday 27th November with a Christmas Craft Fair, which will include  the usual stalls from Potton groups and organisations, together with Henry Harris’ fairground rides and other entertainment on the stage in the Market Square. The Switch-On will take place at 6pm and entertainment will continue until 7pm.

  • Father Christmas Potton Visit
    28th November 2021


    Father Christmas and his Elves will be visiting Potton again this year on Sunday 28th November from 4.30pm and his journey will be finishing at 6.30pm at St. Mary’s Church field for Carols by Torchlight.  Facilities will be open in the Church hall for comfort breaks.

    The Elves will have collection buckets for donations towards Potton’s Christmas Lights.  Father Christmas has requested that “vehicles should pass my Elves at no more than 15mph as they are easily scared and one of my Elves was very nearly run over at last year’s event!”

    Look out for further detailed information in the October 2021 newsletter, on social media and town council notice boards.

    We very much look forward to your support.
