Happy New Year from Barnstaple Town Centre Management

What a fantastic end we had to the year!  Thanks to the support of our sponsors and local businesses, Christmas 2017 was Barnstaple’s best yet and we need to ensure that 2018 and is just as spectacular.

November and December were jam packed with fun events, kicking off the celebrations with the fantastic light switch on, which focused on our incredible local charities - ChemoHero, North Devon Hospice and the Children’s Hospice - and showcased the outstanding Beauty and the Beast panto. 

Keeping us entertained during late night shopping we had laughter and ‘nunsense’ from Musical Ruth with the amazing mobile piano, the magical Sparky the Robot and the antics of the Bouncing Elves.

The Pannier Market hosted various festive events including The Snow Globe and Buzzlewick’s Elf Emporium.

We had more lights that ever before, illuminating the Strand and Maiden Street in addition to the rest of the town.

These events - such a vital part of Christmas - bring people into our town which in turn generates much needed revenue for our local businesses. They are, however, only possible thanks to the generous donations we receive.  Without this generosity Christmas at Barnstaple would be a very different occasion.

For 2018 we need your help to ensure that Christmas is as special and successful as it should be.  In order to do this we need as many people as possible to pledge a donation to the Christmas Fund.  However big or small, all donations will be very gratefully received and all money will go straight back into the community to help organise attractions, lights and entertainment for the Christmas season.
