Those who have been to this special festival already know how fantastic it is, as they return year after year. If you haven’t been before then give yourself a treat and banish those winter blues with the most joyful event imaginable. You will not believe what you see!
The festival will be held from 7th to 10th December and celebrates its 21st year with even more trees, a Winter wonderland and even a visit over the weekend from Father Christmas himself!
This major Isle of Wight Festival celebrates its “coming of age” this year with over 200 beautiful “theme decorated” Christmas Trees on display in seven very different locations. (Brighstone Church, the Methodist Church, The Wilberforce Hall, The Three Bishops Pub, The Reading Rooms, Mottistone Church and the Isle of Wight Pearl). Musical entertainment, Carol singing, Winter wonderland with Santa’s grotto, Christmas crepes, hand bell ringing, craft fairs, cake and biscuit raffles, free mulled wine and daily refreshments and more!
A free park and ride will operate from the Isle of Wight Pearl and Brighstone Holiday Centre on the Military Road into Brighstone village with a further free shuttle service to Mottistone and back.
This year we welcome the return of the “Nativity Pageant”.
Performed every two years with a cast drawn from residents. Follow the action and relive the moment of the very first Christmas – performed through the village and in the open air, the biblical story retold.
Admission is free. All donations / proceeds from refreshments, concerts etc, go towards local and national charities. To date nearly £110,000 for local and national charities has been raised.
