Smiling santa in his sleigh on Santa Sunday Parade

Aylesbury town centre’s hugely popular Santa’s Sunday Spectacular is back this year on Sunday 21 November, bigger and better than ever to herald the start of Christmas in Aylesbury town centre!

The festive parade is made up of local dance groups, professional entertainers, bands and community groups – all to give Santa a warm welcome to the town. Previous years have seen over 400 people taking part in the parade, and this time around the invitation has been extended to any local business or organisation that would like to get involved.

The parade will leave late morning and after its finale the fun will continue with activities throughout the town until 4pm, concluding with the Christmas Tree light up. There will also be a mouth-watering range of street food, and the organising team would love to hear from you if you’re a vendor of hot chestnuts and mulled wine – or any other Christmas delights!

The Aylesbury town centre team is now calling for local businesses, non-profit groups, community groups, dance or theatrical groups or musicians to join the parade with free entry and/or have stall space in town during the day. This is a fantastic opportunity for people and groups to promote themselves.

“The Christmas parade is one of the most popular Aylesbury events, and we’re so pleased we’re able to host it this year after sadly having to cancel the event in 2020. We’ve lots of exciting professional acts lined up and we urge the local community to get dressed up and have some fun!” said Diana Fawcett, Aylesbury Town Centre & Regeneration Manager.

Local organisations or businesses wishing to get involved and promote themselves in the parade or in the fun day afterwards, should email Diana Fawcett:
