T’was the night before Christmas….not quite yet it isn’t! But it is time to start thinking about your Christmas shopping ideas and Holbeach town is exactly the perfect place to start!

On the 4th November The Big Bang arrives in Holbeach – a full day of entertainment, special offers and fun to entice you to into town and to start getting you into the delight of Christmas Spirit.


There’ll be a magical fire sculpture

The Big Bang is all about the business and traders that are in Holbeach town all year round, so the decision was made not to involve additional stalls but instead to showcase the huge array of quality items you will be able to buy for Christmas gifts right here in the town.
On the 4th November many businesses will be offering you special offers such as discounts and vouchers too.

Listen out for the samba band performances

Entertainment throughout the whole town will be held from 10am-7pm. A late-night opening will give almost everyone the opportunity to be involved and come together as a community in our fabulous town, supporting the traders, who let’s be honest have had a challenging time the past year or so. We Love our town and Big Bang gives the opportunity to show back our support and love by making sure Holbeach is our starting point for all of our Christmas Shopping.

You will be able to learn for free how to make bows and wrap your presents beautifully, see a wooden carving transform before your very eyes, face-painting, see mesmerising Victorian dancing, enjoy the sounds of the Samba band, have you photo taken in the Holbeach themed photo board, enjoy a Punch and Judy show, watch the most amazing magic tricks and so much more…. You need to be in town to experience the whole array of delights on offer.

You are always welcome to get into the spirit even further by coming into town in costume. Throughout the day there will be a sprinkling of Dickensian theme – so do break out your Twist, Scrooge or Christmas costumes – the more the merrier!

Come find the beautiful lanterns

Something for everyone – there will be free children’s activities, free displays suitable for the whole family and even the pubs and bars will be offering something special for the adults too – truly something for everyone to enjoy.

The market will also be fully involved during the daytime hours- so start your day off by visiting the market – enjoy the entertainment there and then wander into town to see lots more. There is a handy map in this brochure giving you further guidance about the day too to help you find exactly what you are looking for.

Throughout the brochure, you will also see the huge list of businesses that are offering you a special discount for this day only – make the use of the it by joining us for the merriment of Big Bang – 4th November 10am – 7pm.

You can find the brochure here.

We wish you a Merry Start to the Christmas Season
