Driffield Christmas Festival will take place on Friday November 30th 2018 in the town centre and welcomes the Christmas season to the town.
The Town Council organise and finance the Christmas light displays which are generally regarded as some of the best in the East Riding. From early November the Tidy Team will erect the thousands of lights and cross street displays as well as the Christmas trees in Market Place and Station Gardens, all of which come to life at the switch on ceremony which is carried out by the Mayor at the Driffield Christmas Festival.
This year’s festival features entertainment from Driffield Rock Choir and Chicago Joe and the Soul Divas, hosted by KCFM in Market Place, from 5.00pm. The lights are switched on at 7.00pm. Fairground rides and attractions for all ages will be in the town centre as well as the traditional Christmas Market. There will be spectacular street entertainers and a chance to meet Santa in his sleigh. Many local shops and businesses will also stay open until the close of the event at 8.00pm.
