There’s something special about getting in the festive spirit when December arrives. The smell of cinnamon, cloves and roasting chestnuts in the air along with the nostalgic sound of holiday songs has the power to transform a town overnight.
Whether you love exploring the markets or your heart beats faster when the Christmas lights are switched on, Brighton has something to make you feel jolly. We’ve rounded up some of the best festive fun to discover.
Brighton Christmas Festival & Market 2022
With family shows and live entertainment also on the agenda, Brighton Christmas Festival is the place to go to feel jolly. The festival will run from Friday 25th November to Sunday 18th December 2022.
Christmas wreath-making workshops in Brighton
The workshops are available to book between 26th November and 17th December 2022.
Brighton Christmas Lights
Along with illuminating the city, last year’s event involved performances and a raffle, the proceeds of which were donated to Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice. The date the lights will be switched on hasn’t been revealed yet, but keep your eyes peeled because you won’t want to miss it!
Celebrate Christmas at Brighton’s Royal Pavilion
Make your way through the illuminated garden and you’ll find the Royal Pavilion Ice Rink, decked with reflections of twinkling lights and Christmas trees. An onsite shop offers merchandise for the occasion and there’s a rink-side bar and café where you can grab a mulled wine or a bite to eat to stay cosy.
