Reigate will be getting into the Christmas spirit on Saturday 30 November (2019), with Santa arriving in Priory Park by helicopter in the morning, the Reigate Christmas Fayre in Church Street during the day, and a free firework display in the park in the evening.
Details of the three events are below.
Santa Helicopter Landing
Redhill & Reigate Round Table will once again be helping Santa stop by Reigate. The club has said on its Facebook page:
“Come and see Santa arrive in style by helicopter at Reigate’s Priory Park.
Sponsored by our very generous pilots from Hystar Construction.
There will be food stalls, funfair, games and more. Get there early to get the best view!
Gates open 9:30am. Arrive early to get the best view!
It’s a free event put on for you by Redhill & Reigate Roundtable – all gate donations and proceeds from our stalls go to local good causes.”
Reigate Christmas Fayre
The fayre, organised by Reigate Business Guild and its volunteers, will start at 11.30am and run to 5pm, once again in Church Street which will be closed to traffic.
There’ll be entertainment, foods stalls, a tombola and of course plenty of traders’ stalls.
The highlight will be the Christmas lights switch-on at 4.30pm, performed as usual by stars from the Harlequin Christmas panto (so this year former Strictly dancers Ola and James Jordan).
Parking will be free in the town’s council-owned car parks.
Free fireworks in Priory Park from Reigate on Ice
Reigate on Ice is back in Priory Park for 2019, after a break last year, and will be putting on their usual free firework show in the park on Saturday evening.
Reigate On Ice say on their website that the fireworks will start at 7pm but that timing may vary.
