Arundel by Candlelight


The historic town of Arundel, with its famous castle and cathedral, provides the perfect backdrop; so why not enjoy ‘Arundel by Candlelight’ this December. The Christmas Market features a range of handpicked stall holders and there is always an array of seasonal treats such as roasted chestnuts, mulled wine and hog roasts.

A host of choirs will be performing throughtout the day while Father Christmas will be welcoming children at his grotto in Arundel Museum.

Arundel by Candlelight promises to be an enchanting day, full of fun and festive cheer and an opportunity for everyone to come together and enjoy a memorable day in the run up to Christmas.

With a refreshing absence of chain stores, Arundel is also celebrated for its modern independent shops, contemporary art galleries, and great restaurants, pubs and cafes. The event provides people with a great opportunity to ‘shop local’ for presents and support their high street on ‘Small Business Saturday’.

A host of choirs will be performing throughout the day, including the ever popular Rock Choir, Choristers from Arundel Cathedral, Arun Chorale Society, Arundel Community Choir, plus local school choirs from ACE and St. Philips. Father Christmas will be present, as usual based at Arundel Museum. Pantomime excerpts can be enjoyed at Nineveh House, Tarrant Street. Also look out for face painting, an Elf stilt walker plus thrilling fire performers!

The small town of Arundel gets very busy for this event, so please allow extra travelling time and consider travelling by train as parking can be limited.
