We are still awaiting formal confirmation from the council that our event permit application has been approved. In the unlikely event that this does not get approved, this campaign will be stopped and all pledges will be refunded. For 2021, we seek to bring our community together for a spiritually uplifting festival! The Frodsham Christmas festival is a favourite on Frodsham’s yuletide calendar. A FREE event that engenders a sense of pride in the town & a sense of community. The event is organised by volunteers. The organising committee consists of local members of the community, school contacts, local charities, students & local residents. The event is supported by Frodsham Town and Cheshire West & Chester councils, but the event is made possible through the support of volunteers, local businesses and community groups & craft makers who make this community event extra special. The event boosts our local economy attracting a huge No. of visitors each year.
