Lighting Up The Town - The Directory Group

Lighting up the town

Petersfield will be lit up with the spirit of Christmas on Friday 25th November, as the community comes together for the big lights switch-on.

Here at The Directory Group, we’re proud and excited to be getting involved by sponsoring this brilliant local event. As a local business, we believe in playing an active role in local life by supporting community events such as this – we call this ‘the Care Factor’ and the Christmas lights switch-on is a perfect opportunity to do just that…

The evening gets underway at 5pm, with local schools including Petersfield Infants, Herne Junior School and TPS, along with the Salvation Army, singing in The Square.

A whole array of charity stalls will also be in attendance, such as Petersfield Round Table, Petersfield Town Football Club, The Rosemary Foundation, Petersfield Youth Theatre, Petersfield Lions, NCT, FitzRoy.

And of course we’ll be there on the night, Santa hats and red noses at the ready, running a festive arts and crafts stall – plenty of fun for kids, and big kids, alike!

At 7pm, all attention turns to the countdown, as A1 singer Mark Read – who is leading this year’s cast of Santa Claus - The Musical at Portsmouth’s New Theatre Royal - joins Petersfield Mayor James Deane for the big switch on to light up the town.

Come and join us in celebrating the start of the festive season in the heart of the Petersfield.
