Christmas is coming - join us in Woking for some festive fun!

What's happening today in Woking?

Woking Shopping will switch on its spectacular lights on 23 November, with special family events throughout the afternoon. Late night shopping continues on Thursdays and will also be available all week from 18 December.

Woking Christmas Market will run between Friday 8 December and Sunday 17 December, and will feature festive food and drink, Christmas-inspired gifts, a Continental Market and magical Christmas Grotto!

If you're quick, you might still catch a ride on a Santa Special minature train at Mizens Railway in Knaphill.

Winter is a great time to get out and about and make the most of crisp, dry days. Why not try the accessible The Bedser Trail, or walk or cycle the H.G. Wells Heritage Trail this holiday?

Groups of any size can enjoy four evenings of festive food, music, art and celebration at The Lightbox this season. And families could try a drop-in workshop to make some decorations for Christmas or New Year.

Or you may prefer to watch a film at The Ambassadors Cinemas. Woking enjoys all the latest films at its state-of-the-art six screen complex.

Visitors to RHS Garden Wisley visitors can enjoy magical illuminations at Wisley Glow, late night shopping and food throughout December, plus stories and songs with Santa and Mrs Claus.

The mighty Woking Wurlitzer will be playing all the Christmas classics on 16 December, at Len Rawle MBE's Christmas Concert.
