Prizes to be won at Honley Christmas Light Switch-on

by | Nov 5, 2021 | News

Honley Christmas starts here:

The countdown is on to the Honley Christmas Light Switch-on. Volunteers are working hard to install the thousands of festive lights along the High Street, Honley Park and Church Lane – huge shout out and thank you for the hard work of everyone involved!

On Saturday 13 November, Honley Business Association has been incredibly busy organising an afternoon and evening of fabulous fun for all the family. To join in, head down to Honley Park between 3pm to 8pm.

At this point, we must say a massive thank you to Lynne Green from Creating Memories and June McClean from Zebra, who have organised and coordinated the entire event. It really would not have happened without their hard work and commitment.

Prizes galore

Our generous businesses have donated a wealth of prizes for the Honley Christmas raffle and tombola stall. A full list of prizes and donators is below, but here are some of the prizes you could win:

  • Meal for 2 at Jacob’s Well
  • £50 voucher for Quint
  • £50 voucher for Chain Reaxtion courtesy of Social Progress
  • 3-month gym membership at Phoenix Squash Club
  • Hampers from Taylors, courtesy of Michael Dyson and Taylors
  • Much more…

Raffle tickets will be on sale on the day and can be purchased throughout November from Zebra Jewellery. Winners will be drawn at random after 30th November 2021. This year, winners can choose their own prize in order of tickets drawn. So if you’re first out of the hat, you’ll be able to take your pick of the prizes! (Full terms and conditions apply.)

Family fun

Santa’s Winter Wonderland Walk is a must for kids. Tickets are £5 but you’ll get a £1 discount if you visit from 3-4pm. If you’re coming to see Santa, don’t forget your cameras! You’ll need them for your Elfie Selfies in Santa’s Winter Wonderland Walkway – hop on the sleigh and take you pic! Then collect your treats before seeing Santa in his grotto, where the elves are busy at work putting all your goodies together.

The fun starts even earlier at Honley Sports and Social Club. From 1.30 to 3pm they’re hosting a Children’s Fancy Dress Party. It’s just £3 per child, and that includes a drink plus a further £1 discount on Santa’s Winter Wonderland Walk.

Tickets for the Christmas party are limited – and selling fast – to allow for social distancing. To avoid disappointment, buy your tickets in advance from Zebra.

Look out for Eden’s Forest CIC in the tepee. They’re running a host of activities, all free of charge. There’s also a fun fair with all family favourites, including rides and hook-a-duck!

Music and more

Live music will be playing throughout the afternoon and evening and there’s something to suit all tastes:

And of course, no Honley Christmas festivity would be complete without food and drink, including seasonal mulled wine and mince pies. Stalls will be selling hot dogs, chips, pies, burgers, vegetarian dishes, meat chilli, donuts, candy floss and more.

Keeping you safe

To help keep things as Covid safe as possible, we’re doing our best to help people enjoy the event without things becoming too overcrowded. For that reason there is no parade, and the music and festivities will continue all afternoon and evening. So come and go as you please!
