Weekend Before Christmas: Festive Fun in Hitchin

Weekend Before Christmas: Festive Fun in Hitchin

| by Editor | Posted in Hitchin Entertainment, Hitchin Food & Drink

The big day is almost here and the weekend before Santa’s arrival is set to be jam-packed with Christmassy events to get you in the yuletide mood. 

Festive Fun in Hitchin 2018

That’s right, there’s another weekend of festive fun to be had before Christmas Day here in Hitchin. Here are the events that you won’t want to miss. Especially if you’ve still got some last minute gifts to pick up – or if you want to meet Santa before sets off around the world!

Festive Folk Craic-Kers (Thurs 21st Dec / Sat 23rd Dec)

Traditional folk band Celtic Krystal will be performing songs from their latest album ‘The Silver Darlings’ at The Victoria Pub on Thursday 21st and The Old George on Saturday 23rd. The album features 12 traditional folk songs, including favourite tracks such as Fiddler's Green, Caledonia, Fields of Athenry and Wild Mountain Thyme. A great night of wine, beer, great music and getting cosy by the fire. Starts at 8pm in both locations.

Visit the Celtic Krystal website for further info


Christmas Grotto Experience (Fri 22nd Dec / Sat 23rd)

Head over to The Secret Garden on Sun Street this Friday or Saturday to experience Hitchin’s very own Santa’s grotto! There will be three sessions available on both days (9:30-11:30am, 12:30-2:30pm, 3:30-5:30pm) and your visit will include story time with Santa, Christmas crafts, dancing and singing elves, a chance to meet Santa plus a gift at the end. A fantastic day out for the little ones in the run up to Christmas Day.
