What’s it all about?

Wells Christmas Tide Festival is traditionally held over a weekend, the first week in December each year, but depends on the Tides.

We are a group, who work with Wells Harbour, to bring Father Christmas to Wells, and bring entertainment to the town and also purchase and put up the town’s lights and trees, at Christmas



The Wells Christmas Tide Festival Organising Committee Is Pleased To Confirm That This Year’s Main Event Will Take Place On Saturday 30th November 2024.
As Usual The Date Has Been Chosen With Tide Timings In Mind So To Ensure As Many Youngsters As Possible Can Enjoy Santa’s Arrival On Wells Quay By Boat.

The Festival Itself Will Commence On Friday 29th November On The Buttlands With The Carol Singing.

Saturday 30th November 2024 will be when we have all the street entertainers, the switching on of the lights, the procession, the arrival of Father Christmas by boat and the spectacular Fireworks over the marshes.

You can meet Father Christmas in the Maltings, on Saturday evening and during the day on Sunday, tickets can booked in advance and the craft stalls will be available all day on Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December 2024. The Christmas tree festival in the Congregational Hall will be open from Friday – Sunday also.
