Warming up for Christmas 2020: Light Switch On


Meanwhile, please enjoy what we are safely bringing you this year.

Thatcham we are all Stars! – Christmas Community Installations

We think our community are all stars and so we invite you to make a star to hang on one of four locations spread throughout the North, East, South & West of Thatcham. Instruction packs will be released shortly, plus colour themes and where your nearest drop off will be. Stars should be made by recycling bits and bobs from the house and garden and actually the wonkier the better! More details to be released soon.

Christmas Spirit Safari

Following the success of the Summer Monster Safari and the Halloween hunt, please enjoy this safe, family friendly hunt around Thatcham Town Centre. Launching on 2nd December, use your smart phone to search for 10 Studio Ghibli inspired Christmas Spirits to unlock a FREE e-book. See more at

Thatcham Sings! Thatcham Song for Christmas

During Thatcham Festival 2020, the community had the opportunity to register to be part of on an online virtual choir, led by Kat Penn of Vox Fresh. They have been rehearsing hard, learning a well know Micheal Buble Christmas song. Tune in to our Facebook page or YouTube page on Friday 4th December to watch the world premier! or

Thatcham Town Centre Lights Up

We can’t gather en masse for our usual Switch On Event, however we recommend popping into town after Friday 4th December to view the lights. We have invested in additional lights in the High Street plus a surprise animation in Thatcham Broadway! Get down and take your selfies and be sure to tag @ThatchamTC
