Barton Christmas Festival

Enjoy our indoor craft and Christmas stalls in the Joseph Wright Hall from 12pm until 4pm, and in the Museum there’ll be mulled wine and mince pies and Barton’s only Victorian Father Christmas, with refreshments in the Old School Canteen.

This year we will stay open for hot drinks from 4pm to 7pm if you’re watching the lantern parade or joining in the carol singing.

PLEASE NOTE THERE WAS AN ERROR IN OUR 2019 EVENTS LEAFLET – which wrongly listed the date of the festival fair as 23 November.  It should have said Saturday 30 November.
