Festival of Light


The first Friday in December opens the season in Berkhamsted when the mayor turns on Christmas lights. St Nicholas comes, as does Santa. There are forty charity stalls, children's rides, roasted chestnuts, candy floss (cotton candy), mince pies and mulled wine. St. Nicholas continues on to St Peter's Church where the folk guitar concert is repeated.
