Join the festive celebrations at the Shenfield Christmas Fayre this weekend.
Live entertainment, performances and fun activities for all the family will take over Hutton Road, at the event which runs between 12-5pm on Sunday, December 9.
Children will be able to visit Santa in his Grotto, sponsored by Rainer Hughes, for a £2 donation which will go to SNAP (Special Needs and Parents) charity and go on small fun fair rides.
A free soft play space in Friends Meeting House is supported by “Who Let the Dads Out” playgroup.
Have your family photo taken in the festive photobooth and bounce on the inflatable Christmas Pudding both sponsored by Mullis and Peake.
Entertainment at the event will include street performances from a hula hooper and two Rockin Robins, while the stage outside Shenfield Library will have a programme hosted by Churches Together in Hutton and Shenfield with acts including soloists, performing arts groups and school choirs.
For shoppers, as well as the great offers and festive activities in the shops, there are more than 60 stalls up and down Hutton Road selling great gifts and crafts to start your Christmas shopping.
The day is being sponsored by Beeches: Signature Care Homes, Brentwood Business Partnership, Brentwood Live, Mullis and Peake, Razzamataz Theatre School and Rainer Hughes.
Showing their support on the day will be Upper and Central Shenfield Business Clusters, Churches Together in Hutton and Shenfield, Who Let the Dad’s Out playgroup from Hutton and Shenfield Union Church, Hilbery Chaplin Estate Agents, Fairtrade Brentwood, Friends Meeting House and the council’s volunteer stewards.
Chairman of the community, health and housing committee Councillor Chris Hossack said: “Christmas always starts in Shenfield with the Christmas Fayre.
“We have lots planned for families this year in and around Hutton Road from street performers, entertainment and lots for children to do.
“Also local businesses have a fantastic line-up of activities and music to get you in the festive mood.”
