From storytellers and musicians to street entertainers and a Santa Parade, there is something for everyone at the Mistletoe Festival..
Held at Tenbury Wells, hailed as ‘England’s Capital of Mistletoe’, the free event will run from 10am to 5.30pm on Saturday 7th December across such areas as the library, the Round Market, the Pump Rooms and outside Tesco.
Throughout the day, children will have the chance to create their own Christmas tree decorations and hear Christmas stories from Amy Douglas and Helen Wendy Cooper, author of ‘The Kissing Tree’.
Live entertainment will include a stilt walker, Jester, fire breather, penny farthing, Loki the Evil Trickster and Frigga with the Mistletoe Maidens.
There will also be performances from Dancefest Gifted and Talented, Leo Loco Circus, Black Adder Morris, Shannon Flynn and Blue Moon Blues Band.
A Drumming and Druid procession will be held along Riverside Walk, as well as Druid Ceremony on the Burgage, followed later by the Santa Parade.
Visitors will be able to pick up the perfect gift at the markets in the pump rooms or the mistletoe shop located in the foyer of S.E.N.S.E.
Following in tradition, the Head Girl and Head Boy of Tenbury High Ormiston Academy will step into their roles of Mistletoe Queen and Holly Prince and will be crowned outside the Regal.
