Friday November 24 is the night when elves and fairies will magically appear alongside Father Christmas as he makes his grand entrance in Chapel.

Town End Methodist Church is the starting point for the seasonal curtain raiser with the switching on of the Christmas tree lights by the Carnival Queen Charlotte Jodrell at 6.30pm. The Boys and Girls Brigade Band will play and everyone is invited to join in the carol singing.

The jolly gent will travel on a festived themed vehicle up to the Market Place for the lighting of the tree there at 7pm. The younger children are then invited to see Father Christmas in his grotto at The Roebuck, in the Market Place. Admission is £1 and each child will receive some sweets and reindeer food.

The evening launches Chapel's festive season, a perfect opportuniy to discover the town's many delights and hidden treasures. Not only in the run-up to Christmas, but right the way through the year, Chapel has so much to offer. Take time out for a leisurely browse and you will find a great mix of independent retailers and small businesses which stand by those age-old values of quality, choice and value for money. 

Traders in Chapel are actively promoting Small Business Saturday on December 2, encouraging shoppers to support small local independent businesses in their neighbourhood. In doing so, you are helping local families, securing jobs, possibly helping to create new jobs and putting money in the local economy in the face of ever-growing competition from online shopping and out of town stores.
