The event was organised by Sidcup Partners (Business Improvement District – BID) and included everything from acrobatic Santas to stilt walkers, live music by a steel and brass band and adorable performances by local school choirs.

This year the event was extended to include a funfair and brilliant firework display in Sidcup Park.

The occasion saw a community come together in the spirit of Christmas with many shops and business owners dressed up.

The Sidcup Barber Shop staff dressed as a Christmas Pudding, a Christmas tree and a Christmas cracker.

Local traders kindly provided mince pies and mulled wine for visitors.

The day could not have been complete without a visit to Santa’s Grotto – provided by the Rotary Club.

A queue of excitable children eager to deliver their Christmas wish list made the day that bit more magical.
