Friday 29th November 2013
This year’s Rickmansworth Christmas Evening will take place on Friday 29th November 2013 and will incorporate the Rising Star Stage & the Starlight Parade with prizes for the best costume for the parade for Under 11s and Over 11s from Waitrose and Warner Brothers.
There is a slightly different road closure this year which has now been agreed by Highways. The High Street will be closed as normal from 3pm but also in addition the road will be closed from the Coach & Horses to the Library. Traffic will be diverted down Talbot Road and out through the lowered bollards onto Church Street. A letter will be sent to all residents and offices concerned once we receive the official notice from Highways. This allows us to put the stage further into the road so it is more visible and also keeps the access to Watersmeet, The Library and Basing House clear. The buses will be diverted around the ring road to Northway.
All of the car parks will also be accessible except of course the one by M&S which will accommodate the fairground.
HIGH STREET STALLS
This year there are so many craft stalls selling loads of Christmas gifts, many locally hand made, so make sure you bring your Christmas savings along!
