After the most difficult of years, it’s time to have a Christmas like no other!

Topsham will not disappoint! Find events to jingle along to, competitions to jump into, and activities with bells on! We’re making the best of memories this year and you’re all invited!

Mistletoe & Song

Saturday December 18

Look out for Hospiscare selling mistletoe at Chapel Platt on Saturday December 18. You’ll also hear carols from the churches’ combined choirs in town plus performers Unexpected item in Bagging Area and Chris Ostler performing too (as the last musicians in our Winter of Sounds programme).

Personalised gifts

Saturday December 18

For a second Saturday, there’s a very special festive feature in town courtesy of Topsham Museum. Pick up unique Christmas tree baubles personalised with your very own messages for loved ones. And why not hang one on your own tree, too?

It’s In The Bag!

Christmas Trail

Wednesday December 8

That was fun! Nearly 100 children plus parents dressed ‘festive’ and followed a route around Topsham to bag some festive treats. 17 businesses took part around town providing some incredible goodies before the young residents reached a Santa-stic pitstop at Topsham Museum’s snowy gardens.

Christmas Competition

Topsham’s residents rose to the challenge! May mad their homes super-festive and entered our Christmas Windows Competition. A £30 gift voucher was won by Rogan Meadows for the best entry and Jodie Pym and Polly Arthers were awarded the runners-up prixes of £10 vouchers to spend in town. Well done!

Winter of Sounds

Saturday December 4, 11, 18

Throughout December on Saturdays up to the 18th, during the day street musicians have provided live music to encourage people to spend a little longer in town to secure those special gifts. We’ve enjoyed listening to Jimmy Ireland, Drew Mason and Fingers ‘n’ Fumbs. Last up is Unexpected item in Bagging Area and Chris Ostler on December 18.
