Christmas - Epsom lights switch on
Friday 26 November, from 4.30pm, Epsom Market Place
Following the rather low key switch on last year, the Epsom Christmas tree lights will be switched on at a special event.
Go Epsom have made a very generous contribution to new festive lighting throughout the town centre, so this year there will be an extra dazzling display.
There will be live music, a funfair, contributions from local schools, a delicious array of street food and the chance to meet the cast of Beauty and the Beast, this year’s Epsom Playhouse pantomime.

Christmas - Ewell Yule
Friday 3 December
The spirit of the holiday season is back with the return of ‘Ewell Yule’, the community run popular Christmas event.
Live entertainment and market stalls combine with late night shopping and there will even be a beautiful Victorian style carousel.
Santa himself will be overseeing a sled load of festive family fun.
Fundraising will be underway with a raffle with all proceeds going towards building a new research unit at The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton.
The council are supporting the event having facilitated the closure of the high street and are providing free car parking in our three Ewell car parks for the evening.

Beauty and The Beast
11 December 2021 - 3 January 2022
At last year's Great British Pantomime Awards, the Epsom Playhouse pantomime won the ‘Best Pantomime in Country’ category. The same creative team have worked their magic once again and present a real beauty (see what we did there?)!
With a fabulous professional cast of actors, singers, comics and dancers, this year’s pantomime is the perfect treat for the whole family at Christmas.
Can Belle rescue her father, will the Beast ever find true love, can 'Lumi’ ever get a job and will Nanny Fanny ever remember where she is?
Who could ever learn to love a Beast?
