Once again the communities of Barnet come together on the first Sunday in December, to celebrate the huge diversity of what we have to offer in our high street and surrounding area.

There will be music and dancing in the high street, music and films in the pubs, choirs and orchestras in the church, art exhibitions in The Bull and Foxtons, the church bells, skate park, a funfair, children’s theatre shows in the Bull Theatre, EN5 radio, Barnet Museum, Punch and Judy and Father Christmas as well as over 100 stalls and a craft fair with lots of Christmas ideas, plus our high street shops and The Spires Shopping Centre, with their giant bouncy reindeer!

So much to see and do.

The opening procession starts off from Bruce Road and arrives in the middle of the High Street outside Iceland at 12 noon.

Drummers and  Star Wars Characters pave the way for the worshipful the Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Hugh Rayner and the Mayoress, Susan Rayner, together with the Festival Queen and Princesses in beautiful vintage cars supplied by Studio434.

Star Wars in BarnetFollowing on are pantomime characters and local children, filling the high street with sound and colour and collecting for our designated charity – Emmaus.

A special thank you to the Barnet Traders who helped to raise money for our lovely Christmas Tree, standing proudly outside St John the Baptist Church. 

And a very special thank you to Studio434 for supplying the beautiful vintage cars.
