Christmas Festival 15th December 2019

Updated: Jun 23, 2019

Dereham Carnival is delighted to announce their Christmas Festival, a magical festive family experience!

Visit our magical Elf Village on the 15th December from 2pm to 7pm at Dereham Football Ground and meet some of the Elves in their very own homes. Father Christmas will be waiting in his cosy little cabin with Christmas gifts for the children.

Mother Christmas will also be there with some sweets for the good children she meets, so look out for her. The Christmas Fairy and the Talking Snowman are going to be joining us too. Grandma Christmas is visiting us this year; she says she is looking forward to telling the children lots of stories, including some about Father Christmas when he was a little boy.

We have lots for the grown-ups to do too with music, festive food and bar plus our lovely Christmas Market to browse.

There will be a Christmas Story Competition this year, we are looking for the best story for children written by a child and a children’s story written by an adult. To enter simply send your story to before 1st December 2019. Please include your name and age with your entry.

The competition winners will be announced at the Christmas Festival.

Tickets to see Father Christmas himself will be available from 1st November at various locations in town (details to follow nearer the time).
