Christmas Festival

WHEN: 17 Dec, 2017 | Santa Run 10.30am, Elf Trail 1pm, Market 11am-3pm WHERE: The Shirehall, Hereford

This year’s Christmas Festival takes place in the heart of Hereford at the city’s Shirehall.

Get into the festive spirit by donning a Santa suit before running through High Town and the Old Market during a circular 5K.

The younger ones can enjoy an Elf Trail around High Town helping Eddie the Elf complete his trail questions.

Everyone taking part will receive an elf hat, and at the end, Eddie will present those completing the trail with a certificate of Congratulations.

To make the trail extra special, we can also guarantee a snowy finale with snow canons.

The Christmas Market, in the Shirehall’s Great Hall, will be packed with stalls selling handmade and products you won’t see on the High Street.

Light refreshments will also be available.

Children can meet Santa between 11am – 1pm, although he will take a well-earned break between 11.55am – 12.10pm.

There’s the chance to have a festive family photo with the big man for just £2 per child. Any number of family members can join in on this.

The family photo will be available for you to download from Facebook after the event.

As a token of our appreciation we’ll present you with an ‘Elf Flumpet’ in a special presentation ceremony before the trail.*
