Twinkling festive lights, warm cosy pubs, exciting markets and picturesque views make Cromer the perfect place to enjoy Christmas. There are events and activities taking place in and around the town right up to the day itself, giving you plenty of opportunities to get in the festive spirit and enjoy the best of Cromer and Christmas.
The beautiful Cromer Christmas lights were officially turned on at the beginning of December during an event attended by thousands. Spectators who braved the chilly temperatures to see the lights twinkle also got to enjoy a special Christmas market and a visit from Father Christmas himself. If you missed the main event, you can still enjoy Cromer’s festive illuminations by taking a stroll around the pretty town centre once the sun has gone down.
One of the most popular festive events that takes place in the town is the Cromer Pier Christmas Show. This year performances will take place from the 20th to the 30th December, with both matinees and evening shows available. Perfect for all the family, the show is an extravaganza of music, dance, entertainment and all round festive fun. Last year’s show won rave reviews across the board with audience members praising it for its high production values, laugh out loud comedy routines and spectacular dance performances. Book your tickets now and enjoy one of the best events Cromer has to offer.
