A weekend of festive fun to get into the holiday spirit
Take part in a Crafty Christmas Day
A series of events are being planned on Saturday December 11 and Sunday December 12 to allow the Brentford community to come together and really get into to the festive spirit.
On Saturday 11 December at 11am, The Brentford Project's is laying on a whole host of Christmassy activities - there’s a packed itinerary of arts and crafts activities for all ages to enjoy.
At 4.30pm you’re invited to gather in Market Place where the Brentford School for Girls Choir will entertain us with songs from Frozen. This will be followed by the official switching on of the lights on a Christmas tree donated by Ballymore at 5pm. This will be performed by Brentford FC’s biggest fan Woody, ably supported by Brentford legend Marcus Gayle and club mascot Buzz.
On Sunday 12 December at 11am – 3pm Brentford’s regular Sunday market returns to its usual venue the Market Place, and will be set around the Christmas tree for a festive market, with a range gifts, arts, crafts, and food stalls.
To help really get us in the Christmas spirit there will be live music from local artists playing throughout the duration of the Market.
In addition to all of this the Magpie and Crown will be running a Christmas wreath making workshop from 2.30pm – 5.30pm followed by more live music at 6pm from Alix Anthony.
Hounslow FoodBox will have a stall at the market, and more people than ever need help over Christmas. So do please bring donations of food, toiletries, festive treats such as selection boxes, toiletries sets, and small toys and treats for school children.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.
Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.
We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.
