BOSCOMBE’S BOHEMIAN CHRISTMAS
Renowned as a creative hub where artists and designers live and work, Boscombe’s Christmas Tree will be decorated with locally designed gift boxes. Its lights are switched on by a local hero at 4pm on 17 November. Boscombe is also celebrating its Bohemian community from Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Hungary, demonstrating handicrafts, artisanship, artistry and craftsmanship as well as traditional food such as the Estonian Christmas Crown. So expect to see lots of international festive traditions around this part of Bournemouth in the lead up to Christmas. The annual Christmas Parade on 1 December commences at 9.45am at Boscombe Pier, and at 10am Santa arrives by sleigh at the Sovereign Shopping Centre.
