Our Christmas Market in 2019 was a great success and we raised over £1000 for our Chairman’s Chosen Charity, Voluntary Action Epping Forest.
The Theydon Bois Christmas Evening Street Market is a fabulous way to make you feel festive and ready to kick off with some seasonal spirit.
Now in its 9th year, it has become quite a tradition in Theydon Bois, with many residents and visitors looking forward to this annual event. It usually takes place on the last Friday in November. The shopping area at the start of Forest Drive gets closed to traffic and this is where the market really comes to life.
This is one night of the year when the road is lit up! The market will be buzzing with families, enjoying the evening and listening to the school choir and we generally have a band of musicians too. This event marks the turning on of the lights on our huge 27 feet high Christmas tree located outside the Village Hall. We pride ourselves in hosting such a happy, cheery event.
We have many high-quality shops and stalls selling beautiful items, which are perfect for Christmas gifts. We also have plenty of delicious food and drink available to buy along with mulled wine and mince pies supplied by the Parish Council and local bakery – so you won’t go hungry or thirsty! The Santa’s Grotto, Snow Globe and rides are always popular ventures for the children. This is a great community event, with a really jolly atmosphere.
So wrap up warm, come along, enjoy the evening and meet some real-life reindeers too!
Get in Touch. Get Involved.
