Do go along at 7pm and join in this fantastic festive singalong!

Newbury BID will provide entertainment for all the family to enjoy during this event, with children’s rides, Christmas activity workshop, roving entertainers and donkey rides, so it is going to be a spectacular, fun-filled festive evening.
