Christmas in Rye 2015

There are some exciting new ideas coming in this year to make the 2015 Christmas festival a real cracker! Some traditional features will be back, the Christmas Tree on Strand Quay, the Christmas Market and a very much expanded procession through the streets of Rye.

Areas of Rye not included before will have their own features and attractions and the overall theme will be from the days of Dickens … perfect for Rye’s ancient streets, leaded windows and a great opportunity for the entire town to dress up!

We all know that Christmas is nothing without lights, lots and lots of lights and this year you should expect to see that Rye is aglow. The lighting team have come up with some brilliant new ways of illuminating the town and details will shortly be announced for a window competition for residents called “Rye in Lights”.
