Christmas Fest (December)

The event is a partnership between Poynton Town Council and the community which aims to bring residents together to start Poynton’s seasonal celebrations, support local businesses and provides an opportunity for community groups and organisations to showcase what they do. Poynton Town Council provides funding for the event and a dedicated group of volunteers from Projects4Poynton meet for many months beforehand to make the event happen.

Annually on the first Tuesday in December, Park Lane is closed to vehicles from 7pm - 9pm allowing for a pedestrian only area to become the venue for the festivities. Visitors enjoy more comfortable access local businesses, eateries and seasonal activities. It’s a great opportunity to pick up an early Christmas present, spend the evening listening to music played by local bands and carols sung by local choirs to set the mood with the seasonal fayre on offer provided by Poynton’s local eateries.
