Remembrance parade & Christmas lights switch on

Bollington Remembrance Parade

This year, there’s a chance to remember those who gave their lives for our country at the Bollington Remembrance Day Parade. It will be taking place on the 12th November, coinciding with events all around the UK.

The Memorial Service starts at 10.55am, and all are welcome to join. The Bollington Brass Band will be leading the parade from the Bollington Recreation Ground to the Memorial Gardens.

Adlington Road will be closed throughout the day to allow the parade to pass by. After the service, it will return along the same route, pausing for a salute first at the Civic Hall. There will also be rolling roadblocks in place along Palmerston Street while the parade passes through.

Remembrance Day Concert

The Bollington Brass Band will be busy again later in the day, when they play a concert starting from 7pm.

The Bollington Old Methodist Church will also play host to the Chapel-en-le-Frith Male Voice Choir, and Neil & Ben. Tickets are available in advance or on the door.

Christmas celebrations

With Christmas now just around the corner, it’s also time for celebrations to begin. The town Christmas lights will be switched on in a ceremony at Bollington Town Hall on the 26th November 2017.

The festivities will take place from 16:30 to 19:00 and offer plenty of opportunities for family fun. Father Christmas himself will be in attendance to hear the Christmas wishes of any children who come to meet him. Stalls, bouncy castles, and children’s rides will offer a family fun area outside of the hall.

The road will be closed to traffic as everyone enjoys the celebrations, which will include a licensed bar serving mulled wine for adults to sample. There are gifts and live entertainment to be laid on for everyone, so it promises to be a great night for the whole family.
