Come along and meet Sheridon the Sheepdog and Murray the Mini-Monster, and maybe get a balloon model from our Festive Stilt-Walker.

All these activities will be free of charge.

From 6:00pm join in the fun, as people gather outside Daventry Library, ready to count down and start up the band for the Christmas Lantern Parade leaving at 6:30pm

The evening ends with Christmas music and carols, in Sheaf Street, performed by Daventry Choral Society, the Deco pantomime characters and Daventry Brass.

It's not just for the young, Daventry shopkeepers are extending their opening hours and joining in the festivities, offering mulled wine, mince pies and other festive delights.
