Slough’s Christmas Tree this year will be the biggest EVER.

Slough’s lights will be switched on this Thursday (26 November) in the Town Square, High Street, Slough from 2.30 to 6.30pm.

Santa will be there and you can see the dancers from Creative Academy (from 4pm), the super-smart dogs from Woofability, who train assistance dogs for adults and children (from 4:30pm) and Slough rock band The Chilli Fighters.

Slough Borough Council says it is bringing in the biggest Christmas Tree the town has ever seen.  Festooned with lights and silver and blue baubles the 42foot tree will be taking pride of place in the Town Square.

And those attending will be in with a chance of getting their hands on free giveaways including a smart phone, perfume and much more.  Slough’s Foodie Fayre will also begin on Thursday and run “until the sales”, offering Christmassy food, German-style bratwurst or Christmas Carvery.

From 2.30 to 3.30pm the little ones get a treat of their own with Activus soft play who are bringing and archaeology ball pit and treasure hunt. Based around the newest Disney Pixar film The Good Dinosaur, children get the chance to find a special dinosaur egg and win a prize! Find them by the Bird Tree.

Locally Iver will go next.  Iver Parish Council will hold its own Christmas Lights Switch-On Saturday  (November 28).  Horton will follow on December 3, and Langley on December 7.

A weekend of Festive Fun!

On Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 December Slough town centre will be packed full of festive fun and activities.

Four special craft stalls will be gathered around the Christmas tree offering home crafted wooden items, plants and flowers, bags and scarves, clothing and jewellery.

A caricaturist will be creating portraits of shoppers for that unique Christmas present and children will love to meet Santa’s animals who will be taking a rest in Slough while Santa gets all the presents ready.

There will be music, singers and a magical Christmas trail children can follow – with a special prize for them at the end.

Meet the super-tall ice queen and the dancing crackers and if your feet are tired and you need a lift, hop on Lenny the Land Train for a fun ride up the High Street.

And all for free.

Also get your first hour’s parking for FREE at Herschel and Hatfield multi-storey car parks. Find out more including directions, postcodes and maps to both car parks here for Herschel and here for Hatfield.
