Dorset - - Bournemouth -

With a vast ar­ray of in­de­pen­dent shops and bou­tiques, South­bourne is a top spot for Christ­mas shop­ping. Fes­tive events get un­der­way on 24 Novem­ber, with the South­bourne Lights Switch On at 5.45pm, fea­tur­ing 80 Christ­mas trees along South­bourne Grove. Also pop into the Christ­mas Tree Fes­ti­val in Im­manuel Church to ad­mire over 30 real Christ­mas trees, dec­o­rated by lo­cal busi­nesses and res­i­dents. Santa’s Let­ter­box will be open for let­ters from 17 Novem­ber on South­bourne Com­mu­nity Green, if you want to be sure of a re­ply then don’t for­get to tell him where you live. Santa is in his Grotto on the Green on 1 De­cem­ber along with his elves, to join in South­bourne’s Christ­mas on the Green. The Na­tiv­ity Pa­rade on 15 De­cem­ber will bring to­gether kings, an­gels, don­keys and other an­i­mals to pa­rade from the Band­stand to the Green.
