Christmas is coming to Aldeburgh!

Hi there,

yesterday I had a lovely meeting with the Aldeburgh Business Association which works really hard at trying to not only push small local businesses but to also provide all sorts of entertainment for our town. This week we were discussing the annual turning on of the Christmas lights. This is a really big event in Aldeburgh and a great opportunity for people to come and visit our fabulous town. Every year the ABA, town council and other associations work incredibly hard to provide an amazingly Christmasy experience for everyone – no matter what their age!

The light ceremony will take place on November 29th, from 10am until 5pm. There will be a whole host of entertainments laid on throughout the town to keep you busy including: food stalls, masterclasses, activities and Christmas carol singing. The actual switching on of the lights will occur at 4.30pm . At 5pm the day will draw to a close with a spectacular free fireworks display taking place outside of The Brudenell Hotel on the beach. Pretty good, huh?!

We will be busy providing homemade mince pie tastings to everyone that comes and visits us and we can’t wait to get our festive feeling on! For more information please visit: or

Aldeburgh Music is also involved with the ABA this year, helping to provide the Christmas carolling. Should anyone who already sings be interested in joining in with the fun on the day, please contact Tracy Virr on for more details on how to get involved. Or look at for more information.

As you can tell, I am getting quite excited about the thought of all the fun we’re going to have. So I say, bring on the mince pies, mulled wine and Santa hat’s and lets get our festive frolics on!
