About Us

The theme is the ’12 Days of Christmas’ which will see local musicians, actors and children get involved with a live brass band leading the procession and singing Christmas carols along the way.

Chester’s very own Christmas elves, ChELFie and ELFie will help lead the parade on Santa’s Sleigh accompanied by their elf friends, handing out free magic glasses that will transform the city lights into magical festive shapes.

There is also set to be a snow machine, scattering snowflakes from Santa’s sleigh at key points across the route.

The parade starts at 7pm at Chester Town Hall. You'll be able to stand at the following viewing points:

St Werburgh Street – view of CheSTAR in Cathedral Garden and Spot Santa!

Eastgate Street – Spot Santa near The Cross; two tiers of viewing space with The Rows & street level but get in early as those spots go fast.
