This is an event in partnership with Good Shepherd Church, the local schools and libraries as well as Kettles Yard and CHYPPS who all take part to greet the festive season. The Mayor of Cambridge is invited to perform the opening as in past years. A Christmas tree of good size and quality will be sourced and decorated with lights and decorations. There is going to be carol singing and local businesses will contribute refreshments and nibbles and at the end, children will be given goodies by Santa.
