Festive events across Allerdale

Thursday 16 November 2017

With the end of the year approaching, Allerdale’s town centres will play host to a range of family-friendly festive events which will keep everyone entertained.

November is a big month for getting into the Christmas spirit as the traditional Christmas lights are switched on across the borough.

The Christmas lights switch-on events and winter festivals take place as follows:

Saturday 18 November – Maryport

Sunday 19 November – Cockermouth

Friday 24 November – Keswick

Saturday 2 December – Workington

Sunday 3 December – Wigton

Keswick’s Live Advent Calendar launches on Friday 1 December with a Santa Boat Race. The annual event runs from 1 to 24 December, which includes live performances and a festive window trail, when a different window will be lit up across the town each day. This is a joint project between Allerdale Borough Council and Keswick Tourism Association involving many local groups and businesses.

The Keswick Victorian Fayre also takes place on Sunday 3 December, with decorated charity stalls, a fun fair and entertainment.

Cockermouth by Candlelight will return on Friday 1 December, with a river lantern parade and late night shopping. It is followed by the Taste Cumbria Christmas Festival hosted in Cockermouth town centre on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 December.
