Get ready to be dazzled because the Poole Christmas Maritime Light Trail is about to light up the town! This incredible light show, now in its second year, celebrates Poole's maritime history by taking you on a magical journey from the Lighthouse Quarter to Poole Quay.
As you stroll along the trail, you'll come across amazing sights like a giant anchor, a towering five-meter-tall ship, and Christmas trees adorned with seashells and starfish. But that's not all - keep an eye out for Wish the Whale and Tinsel the Turtle recycling bins, where you can dispose of your plastic bottles. These bottles are then recycled into beautiful Christmas decorations that will impress and delight thousands of people.
The launch of the Poole Christmas Maritime Light Trail on 25 November will be a spectacular event, with the Samba Panashe Marching Band and even Santa himself making an appearance. And the festive spirit doesn't stop there - Choirs at Christmas, sponsored by Poole BID and Absolute Music, will fill the air with enchanting harmonies until 16 December, with over 200 singers bringing joy to all.
If you're in the mood for some holiday shopping, don't miss the Hennings Christmas Market at Poole Quay, happening every Saturday and Sunday from 25 November to 24 December. You'll find unique gifts and local produce to make your Christmas extra special.
And for those feeling a bit competitive, Poole BID's Christmas Window Trail Competition starts on 1 December, giving you the chance to win tickets to The Lighthouse, Poole's Pantomime, Aladdin. And if that's not enough, be on the lookout for the Christmas Display Competition launching on 8 December - it's sure to be full of festive surprises.
