Christmas on the Cobbles

Loading Events

Jingle all the way to Aylesbury on Sunday 26 November for Christmas on the Cobbles – the best way to kickstart your festive season!

All things merry and bright will be taking over Aylesbury Town Centre across the day in Market Square, Friars Square Shopping Centre and Kingsbury.

Games, crafts, activities and performances in Friars Square Shopping Centre including Captain Christmas by Unbound Theatre, facepainting by Zoomania, crafts with Queens Park Arts Centre, Lego building, badge making and a visit from ice queens, snow fairies and even a polar bear. There’s something to keep everyone entertained – whatever the weather!

The snowball arena returns to Market Square alongside other performances on the Radley Doors and Windows Stage including Miss Claus and a magic show full of surprises. The Aylesbury Lions will be serving the ultimate smell of Christmas – hot roasted chestnuts! Watch out for Hodman and Sally who will be busy doing their Christmas shopping and singing some of your favourite carols!

An epic Illuminated Parade will light up Market Square. We’ll be joined by Aylesbury Waterside Theatre pantomime star Andy Collins, Santa in his sleigh, local community groups and international street theatre performers, the incredible LED drumming group – Spark! You could be part of the parade too! Find out how below.

The Town Council’s Christmas lights will be switched on in the Market Square, hosted by Bucks Radio, and will be followed by a stunning firework display.

Santa’s elves are hosting a Lantern Workshop in House of Fraser’s Café Zest during the day at Christmas on the Cobbles. You and your decorated lantern will then travel around Market Square as part of the Illuminated Parade from 5:30pm ahead of the finale – the Christmas lights countdown and switch on! We have four sessions available throughout the day but have limited spaces, so please register now, for free, to avoid disappointment!

Book your place here: Make sure you register before Friday 10 November!

If you are interested in being part of the event, we are always happy to chat to market stalls, crafters, community groups, charities, businesses, potential sponsors and volunteers. Visit to find out how to get involved.
