High streets across the borough are about to light up for Christmas with a little help from Richmond Council.
It’s just over a month to go to Christmas and the Richmond Council elves have been busy, with local Villages receiving a share of £30,000 to contribute towards their events and bring cheer to all their residents and visitors.
Christopher Biggins, who is starring in this year’s Panto Aladdin at Richmond Theatre, will be turning on the lights at Richmond Town Centre on Friday 24 November.
Also on Friday 24 November, Hampton Hill High Street will play host to a vintage car show, live music, pony rides and stalls for Hampton Hill’s Christmas Parade.
Then on Friday 1 December, Kew Village will sparkle with singing and instrumental performances from local school children, and a Christmas trail through Kew Gardens.

“It’s that time of year where communities come together to celebrate Christmas and look back on the hard work that’s been done over the last year.
“For all those villages across the borough holding their Christmas events over the coming month, I hope you have a fantastic time and wishing you all a Merry Christmas!”
