Upcoming Events by Local Friends



St Ippolyts Church

Once again, we kick the festive season off to a start with our truly amazing Nativity Crib Festival. We will be filling the church with as many cribs as we can persuade people to lend us (last year we had almost 200) They come from all around the world, are every shape and size and are made from everything you could imagine (including citrus peel and banana leaves!) Best of all each has its own "story" saying why it is important to its owner. We will also have a "living Crib" - use our dressing up clothes to create your own nativity scene (if you take a photo it will make a beautiful, personal Christmas Card.) Naturally we will be serving delicious cakes and you have the chance to win a crib of your own. Entry is £3, children are free and there is parking on the school playground.

Hitchin Christmas Tree Festival 2019

7th & 8th December 11.45am-6.00pm Holy Saviour Church, Radcliffe Road

Come and see the magical display of 50 Christmas trees, all decorated by local families, groups, and businesses – and don’t forget to vote for your favourite! Enjoy seasonal music from local choirs and musicians throughout the weekend and relax with excellent homemade hot & cold lunches and teas in the Festival Cafe. It’s a lovely way to start your Christmas! Doors open at 11.30am for grand switch-on of lights. Entry £4, accompanied children free.

On Saturday morning 10.30-11.30, we offer a “quiet hour” for disabled visitors and their carers, who may prefer to enjoy the display when the church is not crowded or noisy
