Festival of Christmas


On Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th December, Christmas spirit will be in high supply at Port Solent. Our Festival of Christmas will see the Boardwalk come to life with over 50 market stalls each offering unique gifts and decorations, as well as local food and wines, meaning it won’t be hard to find the perfect present for that special someone.

There will also be plenty of entertainment to keep the magic of Christmas in full swing over the weekend. Kids can find themselves wrapped up in a world of words with Merlynda Jelly Jaws’ award-winning poetry and ventriloquism, as she makes an appearance, along with some lively puppet helpers.

Follow the sound of roaring laughter and you’ll be sure to find Bridie the Trolley Dolly, who’ll be keeping adults and children entertained on the Saturday with her own brand of infectious humour. Sunday brings the wonderfully creative balloon fairy, who will be making people’s favourite animals. To round it all off, a very special someone will be here on both days as he and his snowman friend check their naughty and nice list, bringing smiles to all the little ones’ faces.

Saturday you can find the Highbury Area Band entertaining the Boardwalk with festive melodies. And, be ready for a boogie when the Sling Swing Flash mob will delight visitors with a surprise dance!

Port Solent’s Festival of Christmas runs on:

Saturday 5th December, 10am-6pm

Sunday 6th December, 10am-4pm
