A focus on Christmas events in and around Brixham

With Christmas just around the corner, we have a lot to look forward to; and Brixham is the perfect place to celebrate it in!

24th - 25th November This month, Brixham will celebrate its Christmas Lights Switch on with ‘Lanterns, Lights and ‘luminations’. 2023 sees the event grow with the street market to include the WHOLE of Middle Street, but also The Square, AND The Strand, as well as both The Old Fish Market and The Quay. As well as the extra areas, we are adding an extra day. The Friday afternoon/evening, which will coincide with Brixham's first late night shopping night.

24th November - 30th December The Christmas Train of Lights is now the must-see event in the South West festive calendar. ​The festive illuminated journey starts at Queen's Park Station, Paignton, where a steam train with vintage carriages awaits you - decorated with thousands of lights, both inside and out. Fifteen minutes later, once you've had time to settle back into your seat, you will arrive at Churston Station where the show begins. As the anticipation builds and minutes after leaving Churston, you will be propelled through the 450-metre Greenway tunnel that leads you to the enchanted forest which will be transformed by a multitude of lights with brand new feature displays - plus some old favourites!

3rd December The Santa Run is an off road 3k fun run for charity. The event starts and finishes under the historical Old Brixham Fish Market on the harbour. Running out past the Golden Hind and around the beautiful old harbour you will soon find yourselves running past the Man and Boy statue and on round towards the marina and lifeboat station before heading up the breakwater. It's quite a spectacle to watch or take part in, plus it's all for charity!

25th November - 31st December Greenway House was the holiday home of Agatha Christie, and all the family would gather here to celebrate the season. This Christmas soak up the seasonal cheer as the ground floor of the house will twinkle and sparkle with traditional decorations, vintage carols play softly on the wireless and try your hand at festive wreath crafts in the House Kitchen. Outside, explore the winter garden and follow the trail of 'The twelve wreaths of Christmas'. Each one designed and created with different materials, themes and ideas in mind.

2nd - 31st December Enjoy all that the Model Village has to offer along with some delightful miniature seasonal scenes as our little folk celebrate Christmas. A Christmas character spotter sheet will add some extra fun during the daylight. Illuminations from dusk (3.30pm), latest entry is 4.00pm
