A night for the town to pull together for Dovercourts Christmas Town Cracker event .. we switch the town Christmas lights on and fill the streets with local tradesmen aswell as having our loyal shop owners open late for the guests to grab gifts for Christmas, with a centre stage we invite as many local performers, musicians, singers , dance groups , majorettes, carol singers to get involved to celebrate together , We involve the fire service , police and as many local businesses as we can to be part of this amazing evening and people travel from afar to enjoy this magic . We have to raise a lot of money to cover the costs of all the legalities, the lights to be maintained and put up by a specialist company, in addition we have literature advertising overheads aswell as providing staging area for performers. live reindeer & entertainers cost for the evening Santa & special guest appearances from beloved characters Elsa Olaf Snow White Which so we appeal for donations of support

What we'll deliver:

  • Celebration Evening for all to enjoy
  • Community Engagement
  • Happy Faces

Why it's a great idea:

Community engagement is paramount to any town it helps prevent social isolation , reminds people to pull together to achieve something amazing .. and everybody can do something .. so much hard work goes into this event but the atmosphere at the end is incredible .. some people don't have money to pay for events like this some ppl can't get out of town to see Santa or may never see live reindeer , the fact you can sit in a fire engine or if your a performer with no audience a singer building your confidence a business needing to test the market or simply a child or individual of any age wanting to celebrate with family friends and a wonderful community ...this is what makes small towns great xx

Steps to get it done:

  • 2018 CREATE operating with 10 volunteers and 2 paid staff with at least 3 people that have new qualifications
