St Nicholas Arrival
Saint Nicholas arrives by boat on the first Saturday in December. The boat docks at the Pier in Harwich at 2:00 pm, where the mayor greets the saint. They then go to the St Nicholas' Church for the Welcome Ceremony, with Tendring Brass playing carols, and at 3:00 pm sweets are distributed to all children who are present.
