Christmas in Chorley - highlights announced!

Santa at Astley Hall

Residents and visitors to Chorley are in for a fun festive time as Chorley Council announce the highlights for Christmas in Chorley.

As always, the festivities will kick off with the town's annual popular Christmas Lights Switch On taking place on Sunday 19 November, combined with the popular Totally Locally Chorley Christmas Market on the same day. This event is a favourite in the festive calendar attracting thousands of people each year.

The popular Winter Wonderland will return for the festive period, featuring the popular real ice rink. The attraction is also expected to offer children's fairground rides and more, with further details to be announced in the coming weeks.

Santa will return to his grotto in the historic Astley Hall on Fridays, Saturday and Sundays from 1 -17 December (with Friday's relaxed sessions designed for pre-school and SEN audiences). Visiting Santa will be by pre-booked tickets only, which are expected to go on sale on Monday 16 October - more information can be found at Christmas in Chorley

Deputy Leader of Chorley Council, Councillor Peter Wilson said "We're delighted to announce our plans for Christmas in Chorley and think we've managed to, once again, organise a range of festive things to do for a variety of ages and budgets.

"It's great to be able to provide things for people to enjoy, but it's also about generating footfall to the town to help support local traders and to show new visitors our fantastic town so hopefully they'll return in the future."

In addition, Cinderella will go to the ball at Chorley Town Hall as this year's Pantomime, taking place on Sunday 17 December (two performances) by M&M Theatrical Productions, offering affordable alternative to much bigger productions in the region. Tickets for the pantomime are expected to go on sale on Tuesday 17 October - more information can be found at Christmas in Chorley
