You can enjoy live music, a children's disco and the chance to visit Santa in his grotto when Whitton's Christmas lights are switched on later this month.
The switch will be flicked in Whitton High Stret on Sunday, November 23, at 4.45pm, following a day of festive cheer guaranteed to make even the biggest humbug smile.
The day will begin with the annual 5km fun run starting in the High Street, where it also finishes, at midday.
Santa will be taking present requests in his grotto throughout the afternoon, there will be children's rides and the market will be in full swing, with everything from early Christmas gifts to warming festive fare like roasted chestnuts and mince pies on offer.
Abracadabra will be running a children's disco, the Kneller Hall Military Band will play and lead Christmas carols, and a beer and mulled wine tent will keep adults refreshed.
The High Street will be closed from 11am and entertainment will continue until 5.30pm.
Proceeds from the day will go towards the lights, which are funded by Whitton Business Association, and to local charities.
This year's event is sponsored by Richmond Council, the Rugby Football Union and The Admiral Nelson pub.
