Friday late, Santa Clause is coming to town!

The annual Chobham Christmas Extravaganza 2012 kicks off at 3pm on Friday, 7th December 2012.  Festive cheer carries on throughout the High Street until 8:30pm. And parking is free! (view the village map for directions to the car park).

This year there will be a Christmas Market open in the courtyard off the High Street, behind Melita, and it wouldn't be Christmas without a visit from Santa Clause! Father Christmas will be in his grotto.

Homemade, Hand-crafted

A Visit to Chobham's Country Market

The Chobham Country Market is a treat for those who have the time to visit Thursday mornings (& for those who don't, I highly recommend making the time to!).  It's one of the few markets where everything sold is not only made or grown by hand, but also where you can talk to the producers.  In an era of mass-produced, mass-marketed, imported goods, the charm & quality of the Chobham Country Market is irreplaceable.
