This year, there's a new and exciting Christmas event coming to Hatfield town centre!

As preparations get underway to transform White Lion Square, the usual Christmas lights switch-on will be replaced with a magical Love Hatfield at Christmas event for 2018, taking place on Saturday 24 November, from 11am-5pm.

There's a jam-packed schedule of live entertainment taking to the stage throughout the day, and there will be plenty of stalls selling Christmas trees and gifts, and Santa and his reindeer will be in his grotto ready to see if children have been naughty or nice this year. The theme of the event is Aladdin - this year's pantomime at Campus West.

The event is being held in Kennelwood car park, Market Place.

Councillor Bernard Sarson, Executive Member for Partnerships, said: "Both events will mark the start of the most wonderful time of the year, and are the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit.

"Although there isn't the usual Christmas lights switch-on in Hatfield this year, the Love Hatfield at Christmas event promises to be a brilliant day for the whole family, with plenty of festive entertainment on offer, including Santa himself!"

Hatfield's annual Christmas window display competition will run from Saturday 24 November until Saturday 29 December, and Market Place will play host to Christmas Carols on Wednesday 19 December.
