Christmas in Saxmundham

Carol singing in Fromus Square

Christmas in Saxmundham 2015 was a great success, supported by many community groups. The Pop Up, Pop In venture proved very popular with small producers sharing space with our High Street retailers.

A large crowd joined the lantern procession from St John’s church for the carols in Fromus Square and the switch-on of the new lights. As one of the organisers said “I haven’t seen as many people on the High Street for many a long day”.
