Kendal’s celebration of Christmas starts with an afternoon of festive fun on Sunday 19th November when Santa and his reindeer visit for the big lights switch-on. Kendal’s streets will be transformed into a sparkling, twinkling winter wonderland following a reindeer-pulled sleigh procession from Abbot Hall to the Lakeland Radio stage (just next to Elephant Yard Shopping Centre), for the lights switch-on.  

Santa and his reindeer will arrive in Abbot Hall from 2pm to join in the festive activities before leaving at around 4.10pm to lead the parade through town.

There will be plenty of Christmas festivities and entertainment going on throughout Kendal’s town centre all afternoon before Santa arrives for the lights switch-on at 4.45pm. Kath Jackson, deputy team leader for Kendal Mountain Rescue team, has been selected as the 'local hero' who has been given the honour of turning on the lights.

The Lakeland Radio stage will host a fabulous selection of festive talent along with live music. Elephant Yard will have some great festive treats on offer, including a special Christmas competition, and you can even post your letter to Santa so he knows exactly what to bring you on Christmas Day. It will be an afternoon of Christmas celebrations, festive fun, mince pies and mulled wine.
