Santa Claus with a child at Port Solent’s Festival of Christmas


Treat yourself – and your family – to a day filled with festive fun at Port Solent’s brilliant Festival of Christmas.

The popular Christmas event, on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 December, will offer seasonal street entertainment and festive music, winter-warming food and drink, and more than 100 market stalls – all conveniently under cover, to help you do your Christmas shopping in style.

The Christmas market will offer an inspiring and uniquely handcrafted range of goods and gifts for visitors to find the perfect present for loved ones.

There will be plenty of opportunities for visitors to make memorable moments on both days - and free parking all day at Port Solent too.

On Saturday, from 10am to 5pm, there will be performances from Theatre Arts Kids, the Igloo Band and Choir, the Salvation Army Band and Warsash Band, plus entertainment from Two Wise Men, Christmas Pudding and a festive Fairy!

On Sunday, from 10am to 4pm, don’t miss the fun with The Squirrels and The Wish Elf, along with musical entertainment from The Pitch Pipers; Pompey Pluckers and The Fine Voice Choir.

The Festival of Christmas is the perfect day out for families and friends to enjoy some festive entertainment and seasonal shopping. There will be more market stalls than ever this year, under cover so that visitors can relax and browse whatever the weather. The stalls will be situated along the Boardwalk, inside the Trading Post, and many more in the under-cinema car park.
