Rochford_Christmas_Festival_2018 -


We welcome you to the 2019 Christmas Festival 'website' for the finale and switching 'on' of the Christmas lights in Rochford.  We are well aware we've got to get through the summer yet but believe it or not we spend all year organising this event to make sure it is something to remember.  


The members of the Rochford Chamber of Trade and Rochford Parish Council are delighted to provide you with this free Christmas event for the people of Rochford and its surrounding communities.  Both organisations have given their time freely to ensure the smooth running of this event, and I would personally like to thank everyone involved.


With huge thanks to our new sponsor for 2019, JW Tate & Son Funeral Directors.  Having been in Rochford for many years JW Tate & Son are extremely happy to be supporting our Christmas Light Switch on and giving something back to the community.  We are very pleased to have them on board with us for this year.

Any monies raised on the day will be given back to local charities and since the 2012 festival, over £7000.00 have been donated.  A heartfelt thank you to our past and present sponsors and advertisers for their continued support of this event.

The Rochford Chamber of Trade and Rochford Parish Council hope you find this a useful site and we welcome any suggestions you may have.
