Christmas 2020

The traditional market and music entertainment could not take place in 2020 due to Covid-19.

However…

A Magical Mystery Virtual Christmas Film was released on Saturday 28th November 2020, coinciding with the lights being switched on across the town.

You can watch the film right here:

“The film features music, art, dance, drama, all surrounded by a scripted screenplay in a magical comedy drama,” a Christmas in Westbury Spokesperson said. “Think Spielberg meets David Walliams all wrapped up in a local magical mystery.”

Westbury Town Council have been determined to bring the town together in safe and creative ways, commissioning the film earlier this year to ensure residents could enjoy a Christmas Celebration at home.

More than 90 cast and crew have worked on the 35-minute film, which made Covid compliant production a huge but extremely rewarding challenge.  We hope you like it!

Oh, and have you seen the Magic Button?
