This Christmas, Project Southchurch is bringing a MASSIVE sprinkling of Christmas joy to the streets of Southchurch this December!
Bringing heaps of Christmas cheer and raising our collective spirits, this event promises to be full of delight and charm for the entire family.
Frostbite Festive Fun Day will take place on Ilfracombe Road Car Park on 4th December from 2-7pm bringing magic to the streets and driving away the winter blues for all residents, businesses and visitors. The event will include music, art, crafts and festive trade stands. With an eclectic mix of unique gifts from local craft makers, you can escape the queues and hordes of frustrated shoppers and experience Christmas shopping as it should be – magical!
All of this will take place on a backdrop of live music with a stunning array of acts performing onstage throughout the event. There will also be live street art, children’s crafts as well as food stands and a bar to truly add the seasonal fun with all the trimmings!
Local performers include:
- Echo Studios
- Jada Dance School

Travelling theatre company – Theatre Box – will be bringing their 20 years’ experience in entertainment, interactive shows, performing arts workshops and festivals so that your little elves are engaged and ‘Yule’ be relaxed – so everyone will be glowing!
Local businesses are also joining in the fun by staying open late and showing off their beautiful Christmas windows!
As well as this exciting day of events, Southchurch will also host its own special ‘Winter’s Trail’ aimed at illuminating Southchurch and bringing additional enchantment this Christmas! Residents are being invited to put their homes on the map by decorating their houses with all that glitters, twinkles and sparkles – a visual feast for the eyes, making visitors young and old feel warm with the magic of Christmas.
