Once again the ‘elves’ at Leigh Town Council have been working to bring you ‘Leigh Lights’ on Friday 30th November. The festivities will begin from 17.00 and the Town will be lit up as visitors arrive.
Southend Community Events have been working hard to bring you The Yuletide Parade. Joyful fundraisers will start from Kings Road at 18.30 p.m., travelling along Leigh Road, Broadway and finishing in Broadway West around 19.30
Stibbards & Sons are kindly sponsoring this year’s parade and the two best parade entries will receive £150 and £100 respectively to donate to their charity of choice. And, a new interactive system will allow the crowds to vote for their favourite entrants online.
Crowds will be entertained by a selection of wonderful local choirs and musical groups throughout the town. Leigh shops and businesses will be organising their own entertainment as well.
Look out for our parade programme which will feature a map, parade entries, timetables and special offers from traders to add to the nights enjoyment.
For children’s pre-event fun, stop by Leigh Community Centre from 16.00 - 18.00 p.m. where you can enjoy a puppet show and visit Elsa's grotto! Thanks to Leigh Round Table you can have your picture taken on Santa’s sleigh and they will also be selling reasonably priced glow-sticks. This is the perfect opportunity for younger children to enjoy the event, whilst avoiding the crowds and cold weather outside!
