Christmas is coming!
Thursday Nov 24 is the date for your diary if you want to be in Stratford upon Avon for the Christmas Lights switch-on. Events begin at 4.30 and Father Christmas will be there of course.
The same evening sees the first of the Thursday Xmas markets which continue through December on the 1, 8, 15 and 22.
For a family show, why not get tickets for The Tempest at the RSC or Aladdin at Stratford ArtsHouse.
Also in the area, there are Xmas events at Warwick Castle, Kenilworth Castle, Ragley Hall, Compton Verney and Batsford Arboretum. The lovely town of Shipston on Stour hosts its Victorian Evening on Dec 2.
There are plenty of ideas for Christmas shopping too – and restaurants, cafes and pubs when you need to recover!
