Christmas 2021

In 2021, the Christmas in Westbury event took place on Saturday 4th December 2021. 

Christmas 2020

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


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 featured 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 were determined to bring the town together in safe and creative ways, commissioning the film earlier in the year to ensure residents could enjoy a Christmas Celebration at home.

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