Rye Christmas Festival 2018


Rye Christmas Festival, now in its fourth year, is going to be a spectacular event this year for locals and visitors to Rye.

Rye Christmas Festival is so well organised with the man himself Father Christmas and his reindeer’s arriving in Rye, Mother Christmas and her cheeky elves who will be here at The Old Borough Arms,for a little chat and a cookie, and if Christmas is getting a bit too much for you, why not pop into our Prosecco Bar Humbug, for a chat with Scrooge and Jacob..they are here each year, spreading their alternative Christmas cheer!

Our Mermaid Street Cafe will be transformed into a ‘Spectacular bar’ with Local cask ales and face painting.  

Live music, Street performers, Christmas Pudding races, a Christmas procession and so much more.

Rye really knows how to make a festival spectacular, please come along and show your support!
