Sheringham is not just for summer… It’s for Christmas too!!
Unlike many seaside towns, Sheringham does not stop when summer is over. The nights are getting colder and people’s thoughts are turning towards the festive season. The local shops and pubs are getting their Christmas displays ready and the Sheringham community has many special events planned, including:
- North Norfolk Railway – Santa Special (1st December)
The Santa Special runs a timetabled service up until Christmas Eve. The train departs from Sheringham and takes passengers through to Weybourne, where Santa is ready to give children a warm welcome and a gift. Adults are served mince pies and sherry, and the children receive a biscuit and a soft drink.
- Sheringham Christmas Lights Switch-On (6th December)
A fancy dress LED themed parade starting at Station Road Car Park at 6.30pm (fancy dress optional), followed by the grand lights switch-on at 7.00pm by magician Roy Davenport, Snow White & The Little Theatre Pantomime Cast. Attractions include carol singers, the Sheringham Salvation Army Band, a fairground, fire eaters, dance groups, late night shopping and of course an appearance by Santa Claus himself.
- Sheringham Park – Christmas Trail & Craft (7th December)
A seasonal family event with a trail to the learning centre and the opportunity to make a Christmas wreath or Yule log decoration to take away.
- Sheringham Little Theatre – Snow White (13th December – 2nd January)
Directed by West End star Killian Donnelly, this pantomime promises all the fun you’d come to expect from a Little Theatre production, with amazing sets, stunning costumes & a wonderful array of characters.
- North Norfolk Railway – Mince Pie Specials (26th December through January)
Relax with a glass of sherry and a mince pie with an enjoyable journey through the winter countryside to Weybourne.
- Sheringham Park – Post Christmas Walk (27th December)
A walk in the fresh air to burn off some of those extra Christmas calories!
