It’s all things Christmassy in the borough this weekend as Gravesham Council’s final Frost Fair for Christmas 2017 is to be held at the refurbished Gravesend Borough Market over the weekend of 16th/17th December. It is themed ‘all things Christmas’ and Fleet fans wanting to attend are being asked to dress up in anything to do with Christmas: that’s Santa, reindeers and snowmen — and if you don’t have a costume, just pop on some tinsel and your Christmas jumper!
Throughout the day there will be carol singing, storytelling, ice performances and face painters. The final parade on Saturday will start from New Road at 11.30am and once again head down to the market for the finale of this year’s Gravesham Christmas festivities. A timetable of events is below…
