I know, two Christmas posts in as many weeks and it’s not even November yet, let alone December. Well, what can I say? Except that in the words of none other than Elton John, step into Christmas!!

We’re starting early at Town Crier HQ to avoid disappointment as the festive season doesn’t half get booked up fast. The Deluxe Father Christmas always makes an appearance at the most wonderful time of the year, but think about my other characters that could cause havoc at your festive event – Victorian Policeman, The Canterville Ghost, and many more could be heading up your festivities this year.

In the coming months I’ll be able to give you the low-down on all the annual events for the festive season, including carol concerts, Christmas light switch-ons, parades and Christmas markets. If you’re in the mood for cinnamon candles, fleecy blankets, fairy lights and the odd tipple or two, then watch this space folks.
