Southampton Christmas Festival
November 14 - December 23
In its 5th year the Southampton Christmas Festival is a major part of Southampton`s Christmas events!
This multi-day celebration also features daily entertainment from local musicians and schoolchildren. In addition to the market and the musical entertainment, there is the amazing Flying Santa show, taking place twice a day above the Christmas Festival. This amazing show has become a firm favourite with families and is literally a real highlight for the watching children who are presented with a small gift at the Christmas Calendar in front of the Bargate at the end of Santa`s flight across the market.
This free festival also boasts daily entertainment and takes place on Above Bar pedestrian precinct outside West Quay Shopping Centre.#
Flying Santa: One of the highlights of the festival is a ‘Flying Santa’ who will take to the sky over the city centre each day. See Santa and his reindeer fly high above the market at a height of 35m. At the end of each show Santa comes down from his sleigh and hands out free presents to every child.
Monday – Saturday 5pm and 7pm and Sundays 4pm and 6pm.
