Hungerford Christmas Extravaganza

Memories of the Hungerford Christmas Extravaganza on Friday 8 December 2017

 

 

The Hungerford Chamber of Commerce and the Extravaganza committee have taken the decision to change the event name, albeit following 25 successful years of a Victorian-themed event. It was felt that it was increasingly difficult to provide ‘new’ and interesting Victorian content and something that encompassed a broader spectrum of Christmas entertainment would encourage more participation from local organisations and schools.

The old favourites such as the fun fair, big wheel, helter skelter, bands, stalls, walking entertainers and the Scottish pipe band will all be present but with the addition of some new entertainment such as Father Christmas (with real reindeer).

Fundraising

The event is not cheap to stage and any donations towards the cost will be gratefully received. Please click here to visit the Extravaganza‘s fundraising page at The Good Exchange.

  1. Sorry to hear the event is losing its Victorian theme. However what is the price of entry this year for adults and kids ages 14 and 16.

    Parking? Thanks

      Hi Lisa – there isn’t usually any entry price as it’s a street event and parade. There are various public car parks in town and usually there is overflow at Charnham Business Park with a shuttle bus. We can confirm these details nearer the time.
