Newbury’s First Living Advent Calendar

Newbury’s First Living Advent Calendar
Saturday December 1st, 2018 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am
Bridgette Lawrence

Newbury’s First Living Advent Calendar is inspired by an idea that began in Stockholm and will run every day from 1st until 24th December. Like a traditional children’s advent calendar, a newly decorated window or door will be unveiled by a local amenity, business or resident, who will entertain you with a surprise festive treat. The event – which will remain secret until the day and run typically for 15 minutes – can include songs, dance, music, food, sketches, poetry as well as more bespoke entertainment, all with a festive twist. Come along and enjoy the magic Of Christmas with us.
