Christmas is Coming

The Parish of St Helier is delighted to share its plans for Christmas 2021.

Christmas will officially begin on Thursday 18th November with the return of the Christmas Light Parade and Switch On by Father Christmas. The Parade will leave from the Millennium Town Park, to the Royal Square, finally ending up at Weighbridge Place. Expect spectacular lights, fireworks and fun for all the family.

Throughout November and early December Islanders will be able to have their say on who’s “Top of the Shops” in the annual Christmas Windows Competition, kindly supported by BBC Jersey. Keep an eye on the Parish social media channels for more information in the coming weeks.

Throughout December you can expect the streets of St Helier to be bustling with carol singers, bands and plenty of entertainment to get you in the festive mood whilst visiting the Town Centre.

Plus, after a break for 2 years due to the pandemic, the Parish is delighted to announce the return of its ever-popular Senior Citizens’ Christmas Lunches. The Lunches will run on the first three Sundays of December, and tickets will be issued on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Applications will be available in the October issue of the Town Crier and from the Town Hall.

Constable of St Helier, Simon Crowcroft, said: “Everyone who works or volunteers for the Parish of St Helier will be doing their utmost to make the experience of Christmas really special this year, while the town’s shops, cafés, bars and restaurants will contribute a great deal to the festive spirit.”

Town Centre & Events Manager, Connor Burgher, said: “Christmas is an integral time of year not just for families but retailers too, and I can’t wait to see the town buzzing and full of Christmas cheer - the like we haven’t seen since before the pandemic.”
