Preparations for Christmas in Kingston are well underway with new bespoke lighting across the town and new light installations for everyone to enjoy.
We will bringing back the much loved Christmas market and stage featuring local artists in the Ancient Market Place. This year, the Christmas Market will be taken over by local breweries and artisan makers each weekend in the run-up to Christmas.
If you’d like to get involved in having a stall or would like us to pop in to talk about our plans, do get in touch.
We’re also delighted to be partnering with local charity, Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness: raising profile and funds for them in their 30th anniversary year
Building on previous successes, the marketing campaign centres around the message ‘Give the Gift of Kingston’ and will target local visitors and audiences outside of Kingston; Croydon, Guildford and Woking for example, using a mix of social and print advertising. Take a sneak preview below at our creative concept which will appear across the town from November and in social and print publications.
