Brentwood Borough Council and the Lighting Up Brentwood working group are excited to announce that The Gruffalo will be visiting this year’s event on 28 November.
Residents will have the chance to meet The Gruffalo as he makes personal appearances at intervals throughout the afternoon. He’ll also be present at the Borough’s Christmas Lights Switch-On at 5pm, too!
The Grufffalo’s appearance is just one of the many exciting things happening in 2015’s Lighting Up Brentwood. From 12pm, amongst the usual array of exciting market stalls and fantastic street performers, this year’s event includes two stages with local entertainment, Santa’s Grotto and sleigh, children’s rides and a candle lit choir. The event is sponsored by the Baytree Centre, Holiday Inn, Brentwood and Safer Brentwood.
Brentwood Borough Council’s Chair of the Community & Health Committee, Councillor Will Russell, said, ‘We have been working hard to put on a fun-packed event that residents of all ages can enjoy. We are so excited that The Gruffalo will be joining us and we hope that lots of children will enjoy meeting him. Don’t forget your camera!”
