The annual Verwood Christmas Extravaganza is planned for Saturday 2nd December 2023 from 4pm till 7pm.
The event starts an hour earlier than previous years, but once again Father Christmas will be arriving on Ferrett Green during the evening to greet the locals and give presents to the children, and officially turning on the Christmas Lights in Verwood Town Centre.
The Training Band will be playing seasonal music, there will be carol singing, small fairground rides, face painting, and more.
Food and drink will be served including hot coffee, mulled wine, and marshmellows.
In addition, Forest FM will be providing entertainment from its outside broadcast van.
Verwood Council, volunteers from Verwood Rotary, Flameburst, Verwood Carnival Committee, Verwood Concert Brass, Verwood Scouts ad the Heathland and Heritage Trust all work together to put on this annual event free of charge for the town.
