In 2020, the team of Hip & Harmony CIC has succeeded in bringing Christmas online, providing residents with entertainment and involvement in a host of festive projects – keeping the Christmas spirit alive despite the restrictions placed on all of us.
Now with a grant from Neston City Council, Hip & Harmony are proud to announce that Christmas will be back in town for 2021!
This year, the downtown Neston Christmas tree lights will be on at The Cross on Saturday, November 27, and you are ALL invited to attend.
Road closures will be in place to ensure that the popular traditional lantern parade from Market Square to the Cross can take place safely.

A little word…
This event, along with others in the (usual) Neston area calendar, is organized by Hip & Harmony CIC, a community-based, non-profit arts organization.
Hip & Harmony will be opening their brand new downtown community venue this fall. She is currently raising funds for part of the construction work. If you can help with even a small donation, please visit https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/hipandharmony. Thank you.
